A Boujee Coffee Date with Friends Coffee at Postcard Cafe
Getting dressed up is one of the many perks of a girls date. A Galentine’s day coffee date allows for just that, and so much more! From dressing up, taking way too many pictures, to drinking loads of guilt-free, flavoured coffees.
The Postcard Cafe is the ideal setting for fancy coffee dates with its scenic views, gourmet menu and fresh air. Despite being situated on a wine estate, the cafe has a grand selection of coffees, as well as dairy alternatives. The entire experience is wholeheartedly therapeutic.

A Coffee Picnic for Two
Steering away from mainstream Valentine’s Day dates, coffee picnics are a spontaneous way to make your partner feel special. It’s also a more intimate way to spend time together without the hubbub of a restaurant crowd. What’s more, with minimal costs involved you can afford to splurge on flowers and chocolates. The best part about coffee picnics is that the location could be anywhere – the beach, a park or the backyard!
Tip: Whip up some
home-made iced coffee and treats to dazzle your friend or partner with. Or buy ready-made iced coffee if you’re in a hurry! A Solo Coffee Date The View Coffee Shop at The Chat Farm
Valentine’s Day is not just reserved for couples. Many singletons celebrate the day by doing something for themselves. Being able to enjoy your own company on a day that is designed for couples, is rare!
For a unique solo coffee date idea, visit the
Chart Farm in Wineberg for fresh roses you get to pick by yourself. Right after whisking yourself through a field of fragrant roses, patrons are invited for coffee and a slice of cake at the coffee shop. Take a book or journal along, or simply enjoy the silence and breathtaking views of Constantia Valley. Date Night with a Coffee Twist
For married couples who have been together for a long time, unique date ideas are rare. However, doing adventurous things are also not ideal – and it’s okay to feel that way. Choosing comfort over romance is also a form of appreciation for weathered couples celebrating Valentine’s Day. As an alternative, coffee lover couples can visit their favourite local restaurant and order custom coffee drinks from the bartender.
Tip: Mix a special drink for your partner from the menu and naming it – cue the naughty inside jokes!

Since Valentines day falls on a Monday this year, date nights are not ideal for parents with kids. That, however, shouldn’t stop you from celebrating the day with loved ones. Kid-friendly coffee shops are not easy to find in Cape Town. Apart from offering baby-chino’s, child-friendly coffee shop should have chairs for kids, special food and a play area. Stumbling across a very welcoming
Cafe Latina staff, our social media coordinator and her family were whisked away by their staff. The hearty food and friendly service put them at ease immediately ,and allowed mom and dad to enjoy a peaceful coffee with their toddler.
