Join me on this caffeine journey where I will share some of my favourite coffee shops and coffee spots in Port Elizabeth (and sometimes elsewhere) because lets be honest, everything gets better with coffee.
Take a Coffee Break in Port Elizabeth at Beans with Wings
Situated just around the corner and a tiny stone’s throw from the scramble of Walmer and the roadworks of Circular Drive, is Beans with Wings, a coffee shop (and venue hire) that whisks you away from the noise to a quiet small holding in Theesombe (according to Google) or Lovemore Heights (according to humans) or Charlo (according to their website).
Beans with Wings has a cosy atmosphere with colour and creative details meticulously put together for a bit of a rustic-ouma-se-kombuis yet elegant feel. And while I’m sure it can get busy over the weekends or when there is a function, the middle of the week tranquility will definitely see me again, maybe even with my laptop next time when I need to change my working environment. Plus, the coffee is good and that’s all that matters (and it’s R20 for a big cup).
The menu offers a variety of hot and cold drinks, including craft beer, as well as breakfast, light lunches and ROOSTERKOEK (fresh off the fire). And of course they have some specials from Tuesdays to Fridays:
Mini Breakfast & Cappuccinio, R35.
Coffee and Cake, R40.
Buy one, get one free: Cinnamon and sugar pancake, R30 OR Smokey BBQ Burger & Chips, R90.
Also, if you are looking for a Valentine’s Day special without breaking the bank or eating until Sunday, they’re offering a 3-course meal for R150 per person (this includes a welcome drink and live entertainment). Make a reservation.
You can also use the venue of Beans with Wings for kiddies parties (they do have a lovely outside play area that will bring your childhood memories to life), baby showers, kitchen teas and even intimate weddings.
While the overall space has touches of creativity here and there, the nifty artistic flair becomes even more evident when you browse through their “Words with Wings” section which includes cute gifts and also wedding-and-other-party details and event stationery. Browse, their website, it is all moerse cute!
