Vida has been serving coffee for over 12 years and the quality is still the same , best in town ! The Waterfront outlet has kept the same succesful formula as the original shop in Kloof Street.

Vida e Caffe is one of those go to places where the coffee is always good, the muffins are yummy and the staff are cheerful and helpful - and fast. VIda in Camps Bay is a great place to meet friends and enjoy the beach view too. Very dog friendly !
