Search for the Great South African Cup of Coffee: Dario’s

darios2_r1_c1The search goes on, and I’m pleased to say that I’ve uncovered a real hidden gem in Hout Bay, my back yard. It so happens that this place is a stone’s throw from where I live, so forgive me for my being a little hysterical about this.

I stepped out of the house to chat with my wife Yolande about work stuff (she works part-time for World Wide Creative). We ventured out to look for a coffee spot, and found Dario’s on the right as you head towards the harbour from Suikerbossie.

yolandeI’d been told before that it makes a good cup, but I was still a little surprised at this what this small, unassuming little spot conjured up in leisurely time. It gives anything else in Cape Town a run for its money, and has a nice old-school Italian charm about it.

Do yourself a favour, the next business meeting you arrange, go off the beaten track and drop by Dario’s. You won’t be disappointed.

  1. Fred, I’m happy you found Dario’s already.
    If we were to meet for coffee, I certainly would have suggested this venue and I was actually surprised that you did.
    My family, extended, have been going there since he opened.
    Great stuff.

  2. Hi, I was at your coffee shop yesterday th 7th June morning enjoying your cappuccino with some friend. I lost my cellphone – Nokia N97 – Black in colour. Will you please look around, i might have left it on the table we were seated (in the verandah).
