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.
