A Little Magic With Hallo Joburg

A BEEEEG Thank you to Hello Joburg Magazine for this stunning article in their latest magazine! 

Don't miss our weekly Chefs Tables, Amazing Cakes, High Tea's and of course our Whiskey Tasting from over 140 Whiskeys at our copper bar. Did we mention the bespoke event experiences we create? We have even been busy with weddings recently!!! 

We are also hard at work cooking up our monthly Friday Fine Dining experience with our extremely talented Head Chef the talented Sachin Gosai. This will be limited to 50 people so you will need to be quick with your booking. Do we have some culinary magic in store for you! 

So much of excitement in our little Cafe at the moment! Where Art + Design + Food meet for an extraordinary adventure and a little time out from our daily lives.


Hemingway’s Is Famous!

We have been extremely humbled in the past few weeks to have had such amazing media attention! 

As anyone who knows our ethos and story - “give a man a fish and he has a meal for one, teach him to fish and you create a lifetime of opportunity and you can feed a city”.

Cafe Hemingway’s was a project started for people, out of a passion for food and uplifting, and a passion for seeing people achieve their dreams. 

It has grown beyond our expectations! From a long-ago hole in the wall coffee shop with 6 employees, we are proud to have grown to over 35+ full-time staff complement in a little over 2 years. 

While we are still learning daily and although we are often faced with challenges, it is really exciting to know that Cafe Hemingway’s is moving in the right direction, and living up to our ethos. We have created an empowered family, that strive for perfection each day, a family and team that is always learning and growing from strength to strength. 

Take a look-see at the amazing story that was played on Expresso Morning Show - SABC 3 recently.

Don’t miss Sachin and pastry-goddess Petronella, as well as the Hemingway's team on ECNA, for a feature on our fine dining and how to make a Unicorn cake

We are excited to have been interviewed on 702 last week Friday, where we talked about our Cafe, and all the amazing tasting events and fine dining experiences we offer.. In particular, the Fortaleza tequila tasting and food pairing event and launch, that just happened!

Listen here...

We are also delighted to announce the growth of our team with talented additions that include everyone's favourite Top Chef competitor Sachin Vinod Gosai! We are hosting weekly Chefs Tables specials, as well as taking bookings for our first Fine Dining Gastronomy menu, "Midnight In Paris".
