Starbucks Coffee

Starbucks is a hub of work, play and confection at Eastgate Mall. With free WiFi and scrumptious eats on offer, this is the ideal place to stop by when that caffeine craving kicks in. Seeing as it's 'spooky season', Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice range is all anyone has on their mind. But, who can blame them? This drink consists of handcrafted espresso infused with pumpkin spice, steamed milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and ginger, topped with whipped cream and a dusting of pumpkin spice. Give it a try before the season ends.

Krispy Kreme

Another American export that calls Eastgate Shopping Mall its home is Krispy Kreme. While famed for their glazed and stuffed doughnuts, Krispy Kreme also offers a pretty good coffee. From frothy cappuccinos to iced frappes, they have all you need to curb that craving. Add a dash of hazelnut, salted caramel or toffee nut syrup to your hot or cold beverage for added flavour. And throw in a doughnut for good measure. In honour of the release of the new Addams Family movie release, Krispy Kreme have introduced the Wednesday Addams, Lurch and Cousin Itt doughnuts to their menu. Spooky, but delicious!

Woolworths Cafe

If the Woolies Cafe buffet isn't enough to impress you, then their coffees certainly will. Standouts on the menu include the Vanilla and Cinnamon Latte which is light, frothy and sweet, and the Frozen Hazelnut and Honey Latte. With all the glorious flavour notes of honey on the palate and a subtle nutty overture, this icy beverage is the ideal closer to a day of strenuous shopping. Woolies Cafe offers an array of savoury and sweet dishes to pair with your coffee of choice. However, if we had to pick our favourite, it has to be the dense, fruity carrot cake. Topped off with cream cheese icing, this carrot masterpiece goes down oh so well with strong coffee.

If you ever get lost at Eastgate Mall, just follow the smell of baking cinnamon. It is almost impossible to pass by Cinnabon without noticing it. Your mouth starts to water as the delectable fragrance of melted butter, spices and chocolate drift through the mall. Don't be a hero, give in to temptation and gift yourself with a spicy Cinnabon. While you're at it, order a coffee too. Coffee and cinnamon are best friends, after all.
