Cool Runnings Melville


“Peace be da journey” is the essence of Cool Runnings Cafe, a Jamaican-themed cafe that taps into the island vibe. Nestled in the heart of Melville, Johannesburg, this popular spot pulls in the crowds with its laid-back vibe and great snacks.

This is a spot where hot summer days and evenings are spent quaffing exotic cocktails, sipping on sundowners and wine (ordered from both the indoor and outdoor bars) whilst listening to Jamaican vibes. Depending on when you drop in, a live drum performance or a stand-up comedy act could accompany your meal. An extensive menu featuring curries and grilled meats takes you right to the shores of “da island.”

This reggae bar and eatery epitomises Rastafarian culture. Wooden outdoor tables and floors, grass roofs and the Jamaican colours of red, green and yellow transport you to another world. Enjoy an exotic cocktail or shooter and some time out with your friends. Light meals such as ‘Da Muchies’, ‘No Meat Mon’, ‘No Money Mon’ and ‘Da Fast Runnings’ are available. Yeah Mon!
