Top coffee spots in Constantia

The valley of Constantia is known for its award winning wine and great food, but there is a hidden coffee culture that’s brewing amongst the locals now too. These are a few of our favourite spots for a delicious cup of coffee.

Chardonnay Deli

Found in the heart of the valley this little café is known for its big flavours and big love. An upmarket farm stall that serves light meals where you will be able to find a variety of healthy and homemade products. Surrounded by vineyards and the popular green belt trail.


Knead bakery

An artisan bakery and café at the Constantia Emporium. Knead started as a small family artisan bakery café in August 2006 in Wembley Square in Cape Town. Their café style food is prepared based on simple, unfussy processes and values. They are known for their hearty meals that are made using locally sourced, seasonal produce. They also roast and serve their own Bakers Coffee blend.


Four & Twenty

A new addition to the valley at the beloved Constantia Uitsig Heritage Market. Their bustling café offers all-day breakfasts, hearty lunches, whimsical pastries, and has a pantry stocked with sweet and savoury delights. They only use fresh, seasonal produce sourced locally and take great pride in every dish they create.
