Looking for your next caffeine fix? Look no further. Here is a list of some of the best cafés that Salt River has to offer. Whether you’re looking for a casual meeting spot, a vibey workspace or a place to grab a light meal with a hot drink, the area has a few great coffee shops to try.

Anvl Kraft

This mish-mash of a space is part café, part motorcycle workshop, part studio and venue. Anvl Kraft is a rustic space that can be rented out for functions, but for the majority of their time, they host motorcycle meets and cool events on the hip-and-happening Cape Town scene.

From clothing launches and skateboard showcases to hot rod gatherings and café racer builds, Anvl Kraft is a local hotspot for the underground community. They do have a functioning coffee shop that serves the usual range of coffees.

Anvl Kraft is open from 7am to 5pm every day of the week, except Sundays when they are closed. Find them at 75 Shannon Street in Salt River.

Bagel & Brew

Bagel & Brew is a brand new coffee shop that serves delicious bagels with a range of classic flavours and daring combinations. The coffee shop also has a harvest table where the freshest locally-sourced ingredients and breads can be purchased.

Bagel & Brew is a natural space with a lot of wooden furniture and finishings. The large glass windows allow a lot of light into the café and offer patrons a great people-watching experience as Salt River bustles outside.

Bagel fillings come in all varieties, but we’d recommend the chicken mayo, rocket and avo bagel (called The Joshie). The coffee shop also serves wraps and salads and is able to cater to vegetarians.

Wash the scrumptious food down with a selection of coffees, smoothies of freshly blended fruit juices. Bagel & Brew is open from 7am to 4pm on Mondays and Tuesdays; 7am to 8pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays; 8am to 2pm on Saturdays and they are closed on Sundays. Find them at 8 Aubrey Street in Salt River.
