Haas CollectiveOne of the best coffee shops in the city, the Haas “Collective” (haas means "rabbit" in Afrikaans) has grown organically over the years to include not only coffee, but also design, art, and advertising. Formerly located in an old slave home in the Bo Kaap, Haas now takes up a refurbished colonial building in the city, where you can also have light meals at the plush yet relaxed venue. Selected artworks for sale include must-have gilded African bowls by Michou.

Coffee and Collectibles in Cape Town
Haas Collective is more than a cafe: it's an eclectic gallery and small shop located on trendy Buitenkant Street in Cape Town. It's a great place to meet a friend and order a slice of one of their beautiful cakes while catching up over coffee. One unique feature that sets Haas apart from other cafes in Cape Town is that they offer kopi luwik, one of the most expensive coffees in the world (~R100 per cup). Whether you stop in for breakfast or lunch, make sure to save a little extra time to browse.
