1. Shared Office Space

Whether you have a small or large company, are an independent entrepreneur or a freelancer; everyone can go here. And if you're too busy at work to get a coffee, no problem. You can easily order a cappuccino via WhatsApp. In addition to the various workplaces, this location is also suitable for events. The largest of which can accommodate 240 guests.

4. Bootlegger 

Bootlegger was founded in 2012 by three good friends. The brand has now grown with several branches in Cape Town and Johannesburg. The cozy atmosphere and good coffee make it a nice place to spend your working day. But the food is also recommended; for example, go for one Avo Hummus Toast or freshly baked Scones. A nice bonus is that we only work with fresh, local products.

5. Ground Art Caffe

Located in the picturesque De Waterkant district, this address is very suitable to get some work done. Well, work, you can also just come here for inspiration. What makes this café unique is that art is also exhibited. According to the owner, the food, coffee and art have one thing in common and that is that they are all crafted with equal respect and attention to detail. And extra benefit; there is free wifi here.
