Contessa Tea Shop
Established in 2006, Contessa has really opened the world of specialty teas to South Africa. They have sourced loose tea and tea bags from around the globe – including varieties from China, the U.S.A, and Sri-Lanka. You’ll be spoilt for choice with over 60 different choices on the carefully crafted menu – for those who want a take out, they retail the entire Twinings range as well as its own, beautifully packaged, Contessa selection. The traditional décor is simple, with a bold checkerboard floor and antique wooden chairs that give the café a laid-back feel. Contessa’s the perfect spot to recharge your batteries. In addition to the fabulous teas — served in elegant glass teapots – they offer light lunches, a selection of homemade cakes and an extensive breakfast menu. The mince, egg and cheese on toast is surprisingly good!
