This local cafe is famous for their rich and bitter bottomless coffees. And now they have extended their offerings to include bottomless vegan hot chocolate.

Bring along the latest Patterson novel, and we have the ultimate cold day survival kit.
Kaylee's Eatery has become a popular choice for vegans across Joburg. This is because they provide healthy and nutritious meals that actually taste good.

No books are required for this shop because it's located at a comic book store, surrounded by books aplenty.
This eatery tucked away in Greenside serves delicious vegan fare, that certainly makes it worth the effort of getting out of bed in the middle of winter.

This joint can be found in Birnam. They serve a great range of vegan food and drink. This includes items to take home for the freezer such as ready-made frozen pizza bases.

Lexi's Healthy Eatery
This spot is a vegan haven, serving delicious food that is vegan, with a few non-vegan options. It's a great option for mixed-diet couples and families. They have a wide range of winter appropriate drinks including teas, coffees and caffeine free lattes. Their Hot Chocolate is made with raw cacao, Himalayan salt, cinnamon and coconut sugar. This is certainly a warm drink that is both satisfying and nutritious. We would definitely order this with the Warm Salted Choc Brownie, a dark chocolate brownie served with coconut cream and strawberries.
