What our customers are saying

"I don't usually write reviews or pay much attention to them either, but I must have my say regarding African Roots Coffee. My Wife and I have been a few times to this incredible hidden gem and wow is it really that. I am not the biggest coffee drinker more of a tea drinker but I can honestly say this is the best coffee and tastiest food I have ever had. 
I also don’t think its solely down to the coffee but more the story and atmosphere. What I presume to be one of the owners an elderly gentleman greeted us with the most amazing story of the coffee and its origin. It very rare you find busy owners spending some time with a patron to educate them and talk to them about anything really. This was the personal touch that made this gem our regular spot on a Sunday.
Do yourself a favour and try them out! You will not be disappointed". By Gary White

The Coffee Shop

African Roots Coffee Shop opened at The Pearls Shopping Centre, Lagoon Drive in Umhlanga Rocks on 15 December 2016. Not only are the above exclusive coffees available, but speciality teas are also on the menu as are light breakfasts and lunches. Most foods are artesanal ( locally sourced ) as are the fruit drinks available. The croissants are disputably the best available and frittatas, open and toasted sandwiches and a variety of hummus' are also available.
