The Caffeinated SurferDetour Espresso Bar
My most prized find in SA by far! On a morning jog during our trip to Cape Town, we ran into (literally!) an espresso cart parked beside a highway, nestled perfectly between the towering mountains and the resounding seas ( between Llandudno and Camps Bay to be precise). The owner- Marck Barter. A part time barista and surfer who starts his day early to brew some deliciousness, and packs up by the afternoon to catch some waves. His story is not only unique, but also very inspiring! He creates some pretty great & professional cuppas from his little coffee cart, and is a local hero for many morning commuters who stop by for their morning fix, or even just to say hello.
Creamy Flat Whites for $1 (yes!) and plenty of smiles & stories to get your morning started? Yes please! I am certain this is what working in heaven must feel like.
Do stop by when in Cape Town next! It'll be an experience to remember.
