Grounded At Echo

Top choice cafe in Pretoria

It's easy to love this design-savvy cafe run by the nonprofit Echo Youth Development. It's a great spot for breakfast, with a variety of granolas alongside some tempting egg dishes. The coffee and tea are top class and you can buy the beans and leaves (and the adorable mini-gingerbread men served gratis with each cup) to take away.

A wall of the cafe acts as a gallery for local artists and next door it also runs a co-working space (per hour/day R15/100, 8am to 5pm Monday to Friday).
