This week: Flavours Coffee & Gift Shop.

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 let’s be honest, everything gets better with coffee.

Take a Coffee Break in Port Elizabeth at Flavours

Just over a year ago my mother introduced me to Flavours Coffee Shop in Walmer, and my caffeinated heart is so thankful that my mother is always ready for a ‘koffietjie’, because this spot is a precious one.

Flavours Coffee & Gift Shop ticks all the right boxes for me.

It has a whole lot of atmosphere, and trust me, it is not called “Flavours” for nothing.

First of all, the background music – soothing sounds, usually instrumental and not too loud – is what makes it so easy for me to pack my laptop and go work from there for a few hours; I can’t concentrate when music is blaring loudly. Plus, there is one table in the corner (I’m a corner-type-of-person) with a plug point. Needless to say but this coffee shop has saved me from missing multiple deadlines (and from losing my sanity) when my ex-neighbours were hammering and renovating away.

It has a seating area inside, as well as outside, with the outside area offering shade under a massive tree and the inside area being divided into different rooms/section so it doesn’t get as noisy as a place with just one big open space (there is also a play area for kids in the back, indoors as well as outdoors).

Looking for unique gifts and treats? They have a little bit of everything; bottled baby beetroot and pasta salad, biscuits, décor, jewellery, scarfs, magnets, paintings, note books and pottery.

Also, the smell of Hertzoggies (and other baked goods) greet you as soon as you step into the coffee shop.

Always.

Without fail.

In fact, that’s how Flavours started; the owners with baked goods from their kitchen and if you fast forward to today, their humble beginnings turned into a coffee shop and a business where the “Flavours” sticker can be seen on biscuits and more in store and in a lot of other shops as well.

The menu consists of breakfasts starting at R32 and light meals – such as toasted and speciality sandwiches, tramezzinis, pies, quiches, wraps and salads starting at R32 and going up to R58. Before I ended my relationship with chicken, the curry chicken tramezzini with peanuts and mozzarella, used to be my one and only.

And did I mention the coffee?

A cup is R12, and a mug is R14.

At that price, any time is the right time for a “koffietjie”, even in a tight month like January.
