The southern suburbs are known for many things, but traditionally coffee hasn’t been one of them.
That’s all changing as Tribeca bakery is moving and shaking as it’s making its mark in the Southern Suburbs.
Where it began
The first store opened in 2009 in Kalk Bay, the more alternative trendy hangout in Cape Town. Perhaps slightly unexpected to find a chic New York styled restaurant amongst the relaxed chilled out crowd of Kalk Bay, Tribeca Bakery was a hit and has gone on to open three more stores, with no plans on stopping there.
But all great things start with a dream, and generally there is a person behind that dream. The man behind Tribeca Bakery is Ryan New, a passionate 29 year old Capetonian with his sights set high for the brand.
Having already established Tribeca Bakery as the place to be seen when living it up in the burbs, this ambitious young entrepreneur is planning on entering new territory with plans to expand to the CBD and Stellenbosch later this year.
The concept is that of combining a bakery and restaurant. Besides freshly made baked goods Tribeca serves wholesome meals and a cup of joe on par with any boutique coffee bar around. Definitely a million times better than any Starbucks coffee!
What I love about Tribeca Bakery is that although they’re popping up all over the Southern Suburbs, maintaining their quality is a big focus. Their coffee is as good as it gets, and not overpriced, which trumps a lot of the better known coffee establishments who tend to rest on their laurels and let service and quality go by the wayside.
More good news
On that note I am extremely excited to announce that Tribeca Bakery will now be giving under5foot its regular caffeine kick. Keep an eye out for their latest specials, events and delectable tidbits soon to come on under5foot.
