Concierge.com's insider take:
Two former Lufthansa flight attendants spent their working years checking out the best coffee shops around the world before opening up their own at The Square shopping center in Plettenberg Bay. Some menu items are a tribute to those travels—Rick's Cappuccino Freddo pays homage to the Amsterdam brew—while the mismatched furniture and displays of works by local artists give it a distinctly Greenwich Village feel. Doubleshot installed the first Kees van der Westen Mirage espresso machine in Africa, and it now buy its beans from Origin roastery in Cape Town. To eat, the café offers cakes, sandwiches piled high with local meats and cheeses, and muesli worth skipping your hotel breakfast for.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 8 am to 3 pm.
