We had the great opportunity to visit Emporium Coffee Shop with owners Geraldine Deminey and our featured Chef and owner Sarah-Jane Reed.
Emporium Coffee Shop is in Faerie Glen, Pretoria. Upon our arrival, Chef Sarah-Jane Reed met with us, and we were able to chat and get to know more about Emporium. When walking into the coffee shop there is this beautiful 1950’s vintage style, warm and homely feeling with a great display of cakes, cupcakes, cookies and everything your taste buds desire.
We sat down inside, and Sarah showed us what an ordinary day in her life is like, sugar crafting hand-made roses for a cake she had received an order for earlier that morning. Emporium does a lot of orders for birthday’s, baby showers, bachelorettes, etc.
After we had done our interview with Sarah, we got the menu and saw so many interesting and different choices like there breakfast Special, French Toast, On the go Breakfast, Emporium Breakfast, Stacked Breakfast, Breakfast Waffle and Sweet Tooth Breakfast. We decided we had to taste the Sweet Tooth Breakfast (Banana flapjacks with crispy bacon and syrup with a choice between cream or ice cream) as we have never had something like that before, and not to mention my sweet tooth just couldn’t resist the opportunity. The flavours complemented each other so well, the salty taste of the bacon to the sweet taste of the syrup and ice cream to the savoury taste of the flapjacks, it was all just too delicious my sweet tooth was without a doubt satisfied.
In our opinion, the coffee shop reminds us a lot of the ones in Europe. You can sit down inside or outside, order your coffee with a little cake. Later if you want you can take a look at the menu, and still have breakfast, or lunch and not to mention pre-cooked meals for dinner when you get home after a busy day and don’t feel like cooking. Bonus!
We would recommend Emporium Coffee Shop anytime. It’s a great place to go on a Saturday with friend’s to socialise in a friendly environment to enjoy Breakfast and lunch or a coffee and an irresistibly delicious cupcake or Chocolate Brownie and yes a cupcake or chocolate brownie after all we are all allowed a cheat day right?
Emporium Coffee Shop is open Mondays to Fridays from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm and Saturdays from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm.
