What's Good Cape Town?

How quaint coffee shop Café Puka serves Capetonians the perfect caffeine fix

Just like their coffee, Café Puka has managed to stay hot and fresh for 14 years in the business.

Shop owner Michael Edwards says his aim has always been to survive and keep customers coming back.

Over the years, we've established a very nice clientele, very varied and mixed; and hopefully we are able to keep them happy and returning.

Tucked away in scenic Tamboerskloof, he says that the café does not compromise on quality, technique, hygiene or freshness.

After the CapeTalk team asked listeners to nominate their favourite coffee shop in the Mother City, we paid them a visit for a taste test.

Listen to the full conversation:

The proud owner of the best coffee shop in Cape Town...

Café Puka has stayed consistent in the face of changing consumption patterns...

'I found a place where I can still get my (REAL) cappucino' - #WhatsGoodCapeTown nominator

'It's one of those places where you drink your coffee and your nose gets a bit of foam on it' - #WhatsGoodCapeTown nominator

A lot of work goes into making the perfect brew...

Which leaves customers at a loss for words...

We have to agree, it's a sweet escape for when the hustle and bustle of the city gets to much...
