Cape Town Coffeeshops to Work from

Will you be visiting Cape Town in South Africa any time soon? The city has so much to offer, including some of the most spectacular scenery in the world: from the wide, sweeping sandy beaches to the majestic mountains (including the iconic Table Mountain) that are visible throughout the city.

If you will be spending some time in Cape Town and need somewhere comfortable and cosy (with a good WiFi connection) in which to work, why not try one of Cape Town’s many great coffee shops?

We have narrowed down the top 5 Cape Town coffee shops with working abilities. Let’s take a look!

#Hazz Coffee Company

Located in the lush, green suburb of Newlands, Hazz Coffee Company is one of Cape Town’s hidden gems when it comes to coffee shops!

With its slightly unassuming and plain outer appearance, the coffee shop is often overlooked in favor of other more flashy places. However, once you walk through the doors of this rare find, you will be taken aback by its ultra-cool interior design and quiet and peaceful atmosphere.

Another great advantage of working at Hazz is that it has constant and strong WiFi so you can go about your work without worrying about being cut off.


Origin is located the trendy City Bowl area where there is always plenty to do and see.

Here, you will definitely taste some of the best coffee on your trip as they carefully source their own coffee beans and roast and ground them up on site. They offer a wide variety of coffee blends, making it perfect for the coffee connoisseur. If you are feeling hungry, they have a lovely menu, including their trademark all-day breakfast which comes highly recommended!

Settle yourself at one of their many tables and spend a pleasant morning working and drinking coffee.

#Truth Coffee Roasting

Some people enjoy working in coffee shops that offer a nice ambience and if this sounds like you, there is none better than Truth Coffee Roasting!

It has a very funky, steampunk theme with lots of cozy tables, several power points and strong WiFi. It does tend to get a bit busy but this is only because the coffee shop is very popular and serves amazing coffee and food. The staff are also extremely helpful and friendly and can offer recommendations on the menu as well as places to go and things to do in Cape Town.

This is a great place in which to sit down with your laptop and an incredible cup of coffee!

#Balmoral Cafe

Looking for a place that offers great coffee but also a nice view? Balmoral Cafe in Muizenberg offers both of these and you will never get enough of the beach view where both surfers and beachgoers are in their element.

This coffee shop has 2 floors and you can choose between a cozy table or a comfortable couch while you work away and sip at one of their many delicious coffee blends. It doesn’t get better than this!

#Cafe Neo

Another great coffee joint offering a nice view, excellent coffee and a great ambience is Cafe Neo in Mouille Point. Here, you can take in the spectacular sea view as well as that of the lighthouse and promenade.

This is a very unique combination and the place can get a little busy but if you plan on going early in the morning or later on in the afternoon, you should find a nice, quiet table. Their menu is also great and they offer a tasty variety of light meals and gourmet coffees.
