“It becomes apparent how one might all too easily lose track of time here, and yet, no one seems to really mind in the slightest.”
R osetta Roastery encapsulates what Cape Town is fast becoming known for: a city of many tucked away cafes and eateries that both encapsulates its local surroundings, while unveiling an otherworldly magic when one steps inside. Not unlike many of the coffee destinations one might encounter abroad – many of which are cities already synonymous with it’s coffee culture – Cape Town has sprung forth plenty of beautiful cafes in the last half-a-decade, many of which serving impeccably crafted brews.
Located inside the Woodstock Exchange business market, Rosetta occupies it’s own space with a full selection of feasts for the eye, and blueberry danishes unlike anything I’ve been treated to before. While sipping on one of their three assorted blends, it’s hard not to notice the abstract, wall-mounted painting, propped against a stark black wall. It’s a thing of simplicity and beauty, at least where the two meet in harmony. The wall-hanging greenery serves a breath of fresh perspective to the otherwise sleek, industrial space kitted out with gold brasserie and wooden seating. Balancing the entire space is the afternoon light that casts utterly beautiful shadows across the courtyard entrance of the cafe, bringing to life all the happenings behind the glass planes where coffee is grounded and sorted for the perfect cuppa’.
