Long gone are the days when Pietermaritzburg’s culinary scene was subjected to local scorn. The capital is now home to a handful of innovative and impressive London-influenced restaurants that cater to all tastes and budgets, and one of them is the all-new Coffeeberry.
Owned by Con and Sue Malherbe, Coffeeberry was established in 2005, and for 11 years lived on a stark white corner in the Cascades Lifestyle Centre and was the place to go to for a quick sit down meal and cappuccino for people from all walks of life.
Fast forward to September 2016 and Coffeeberry has gone next-level dining, quickly becoming the place to be in Pietermaritzburg.
It has relocated to its new venue overlooking the beautiful new Cascades Centre piazza, has rebranded, and is a warm, natural wood and brick industrial chic restaurant, serving fresh, home-from-home breakfast, lunch and dinner, akin to the Frontline Club and Fernandez & Wells restaurants on Duke Street in London.
Coffeeberry is a genuinely relaxed and friendly neighbourhood restaurant, which also happens to have a magnificent menu, a wine list and more, with trading hours Monday to Saturday from 7am to 9pm, and 7am to 8pm on Sundays and public holidays.
