Where the coffee is strong and the wifi free. This is where today’s future entrepreneurs are crafting business models for their next big things. Where the solutions of today’s issues are being workshopped, we transferred, uploaded and brainstormed, as are the creative innovations to implement them.
Aside from the now boring ‘natural beauty’ the city boasts, which every Capetonian does too, Cape Town has some of the most well designed and very cool ‘coffice’ joints. They take their artisanal coffee seriously here, not to mention the wifi, most places in the city centre offer it free.
So here are two of our favourite spots that double up as Millenials’ go-to offices.
Field Office (East City)
Over in the East City is Field Office, which is as its name suggests, is all about werk, werk, werk! Walk in there on any given day of the week during office hours and the place is jammed with young and happening creatives from all over the city. The area is a burgeoning hub of creativity with the Cape Craft and Design Institute located upstairs and various co-working hubs and design studios also in the area. Its proximity to the City Centre makes it a popular choice as a few minutes by sneakers gets you to Long, Loop and Bree Streets and the My Citi Bus routes are everywhere.
Not only does this place roast some of the most exciting flavours from around the world it also happens to be one of the chicest most beautifully designed coffee caves in the city and arguably the country. Located in every Millennial’s shopping centre of choice, the Woodstock Exchange (boasting some of the city’s fastest broadband wifi, that’s free), it’s one big vibe hanging out here. The coffee is artisanal, the setting urban and very chic, the style-game of the creatives is seriously on-point and of course the wifi is fast.
