ABOUT

As a true homegrown brand, Vida e Caffè’s roots are firmly imbedded in the iconic flagship store that first opened its doors on the vibrant Kloof Street, Cape Town, in October 2001. From here, Vida pioneered the way to bring that authentic European espresso bar culture, infused with that unique energetic African flavour to the best locations in all our cities. Our stores are designed for comfort, convenience and consistency, with an attitude that exude creativity where you always feel the inspired, be it from the captivating smell of freshly-baked ‘pastéis de nata’ or the exquisite taste of our carefully blended signature Estrela coffee, awakening the soul.

ONE VIDA, ONE MEIA

Their signature Vida e Caffè drink single-handedly revolutionised coffee drinking in South Africa. The ‘meia de leite’ (pronounced ‘maya-de-lay’) is passion personified – an exquisite balance of one part espresso, one part steamed milk. They draw the espresso first, then slowly and carefully pour the milk over the back of a spoon into our signature cup.

GELADO, KEEPING THINGS COOL

There are many versions of iced coffee drinks but only one gelado. Say ‘hamba!’ to powders and preservatives; our famous cold drink is simply a meticulously drawn shot of Estrela blended with ice until creamy and smooth. Guaranteed to refresh and revive on even the hottest African days. Olà, summer!
