After a day of tempting my unbounded wanderlust on the streets of Kalk Bay and the greater False Bay area as part of the Explore the Cape series, we took a much needed pitstop - or in this case coffee-stop before heading back home. What better place to refuel than the ultra trendy cafe and restaurant positioned so perfectly on the vibrant main road of Kalk Bay, with a name that would make any South African’s mouth water and swiftly...
