We had an early morning breakfast of eggs Benedict - mine with bacon on a ciabatta and my wife's was an asparagus Banting EB; both were beautifully presented, served promptly with a smile and accompanied by coffee and rooibos tea. Yes, this coffee house also has a range of teas available for on-site or take-away consumption as well as packets... More

I'm not sure they roast their own beans, but you can find every brewing method imaginable, served by knowledgeable staff who really care about their coffee. Also a good space in a great location in the waterkant

Visiting this coffee shop was an amazing experience. The food is great, the coffee even better with very polite and friendly waiters. Certainly worth a visit when in town.

As somewhat of a coffee nerd and a coffee shop owner I really appreciate when people take their coffee seriously, which is the case at Origin. They were more than happy to tell us about their different beans and brewing style, and even gave us free samples of their cold brew and slow brew. The latte was amazing! By far... More

7 years ago when I last was inCT there were not many coffee shops like there are now. Origin was one of the first good coffee places in this city. They still are fantastic and beats Truth coffee hands down! Good servise and atmosphere and great location in the trendy de waterkant area.

It is just so full of atmosphere and we loved checking out all the beautiful and trendy Cape Townians :-) The coffee and food was beyond excellend. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

I've been an avid Origin supporter since day 1 in fact how Truth gets number 1 spot I have no idea. However over my past 4 visits, I notice the coffee getting very sour, why ? I have asked the waiter or waitress on each occasion to please not give me sour coffee but for reasons best known to them... More
