COFFEE AFICIONADO IN JEFFREY’S BAY

 

Don’t be fooled by the unpretentious outside of the Fifth Wave. You can sit outside on the small wooden deck that leads into the narrow interior, or inside on an eclectic collection of benches and tables made to accommodate the narrow area.  The tantalizing aroma of coffee draws you to the back of the café where Amedeo is working his trade.  He is a true Coffee Aficionado and loves the manual brew method.  He crafts your choice of coffee with fervid care and the result is bliss.

He also makes some interesting sandwiches with a selection of breads, and his Home-made Almond Milk is almost as good as his coffee.

His wisdom for the day was “As oceans bring the continents together, so coffee brings people together.”  Sounded good coming from him!!  This was our ‘go to’ place for good coffee while we were in Jeffreys Bay.  In fact, we could not find coffee as good as Fifth Wave during our week in Cape Town!!

This little café is found tucked between two retail shops on the left of Checkers in the Magnatubes Trio Complex in Da Gama Road.  The amazing rich coffee smell is a treat alone.

5 of South Africa’s Best Beaches Plettenberg Bay: Sunshine Sea and Golden Sands

The rich and famous make this home. The rest of us head down to Plettenberg Bay when we have a break because the Blue Flag beaches are the best in South Africa, in fact I would argue, the world. Crystal clear, glinting waves break onto pristine golden sands. The lure to dive into the cool refreshing water makes the experience of barefoot long beach walks just perfect!!
