Rcaffé has been for a long time a Long Street institution, serving coffee which has been listed on Cape Town Magazine
's Top 10, health drinks, mouth watering breakfasts and lunch options to its diverse traffic since 2004, and even almost a decade later this coffee shop and eatery is still bang on trend and consistently improving its offering.
The feel is bohemian and old school. The décor is mostly handmade and was created from recycled materials.
Along with the décor overhaul, the baking has also been refined.
The carrot cake is not to be missed. The flavour, infused with spice, is exotic. Also on offer is double chocolate cup cake, flowerless red velvet cake and baked cheese cake.
Another draw card is the real butter croissants baked fresh every morning which will transfer you to Paris and back.
Passers-by can get them hot out of the oven when Rcaffé opens its doors at 6:30 in the morning (one of the only places on Long Street to do so).
Breakfast at Rcaffe is served all day long. The breakfast menu is large and appetizing, from traditional fry-ups to more creative offerings, such as the scramble delight: delicious moist scrambled eggs to the Ricotta Omelette Sandwich
The main meals are just as varied. For the not-so-hungry there are sandwiches and wraps, and for those with a more substantial appetite there’s lamb loins, Thai chicken curry, sirloin steak, and plenty more (check the daily specials board for the dish of the day).
We’re also known for our meal-sized salads. Diners can choose between tempting options such as the L'entrecote Salad, which is rare roast beef salad with creamy avocado, or even the Gorgonzola Salad with caramelized pears and roasted almonds or roasted butternut and rocket salad with crispy bacon feta and pumpkin seeds.
There’s fine wine to match this fine food too. The city centre café boasts an ever-changing list that incorporates some of the Cape’s best. Though, if wine isn’t your thing, try one of the cocktails - the Chi Chi; a blend of vodka, coconut and pineapple is delicious.
Whether you’re popping in for coffee and cake, or sitting down for a bang-up meal, the portions are extremely generous, so it’s a good place to come if you’re, you guessed it, feeling ravenous.
