This coffee shop-cum-bakery-and-boutique-and-interior design studio Soet Emporium sits on the corner of Durbanville’s Oxford Street and Wellington Road like a bold fashion statement. The colourful stripes on the walls welcome passers-by with the promise of a cheerful cup of coffee - and then some.

Soet Bistro is a meeting place where coffee connoisseurs, friends, mothers, business people, fashionistas and décor enthusiasts come to indulge in the impressive variation of Soet Emporium services.

They are committed to serving quality, fresh food and have compiled a menu with “creative but casual” meals, putting their creative stamp on traditional favourites. A perfect example is the unique 100% beef burger, with a homemade patty filled with secret ingredients. And of course the fouda cheese - a delightful discovery which falls somewhere between gouda and feta. It is made exclusively by co-owner Zillah’s father on his Garden Route farm and is only served at Soet Bistro.

For those who can’t resist a piece of cake, breakfast and lunch are complimented by the café bakery’s treats. The bistro boasts freshly baked artisan bread and a variety of heavenly confectionaries such as the exquisite baked lilac cheesecake. Their famous gourmet wraps keep people coming back for another dose of Soet Bistro’s signature secret sauce.

Soet Bistro is an ideal venue for any special occasion, and with catering being part of their offering they provide everything needed to host a unique event. The bistro is partitioned into separate areas - each with a particular ambiance. The lively main room includes a sophisticated bar counter where drinks are served. A warm corner is dedicated to Soet Café Bakery which is optimised for a quick over-the-counter service, a place where customers can literally buy a bun-on-the-run or a gourmet pie, perfect for those who don't have time to sit and enjoy their freshly baked baked goods.
