Bootlegger in Kenilworth is not too far from home and I am a regular. We had an informal latish family reunion last night and due to its centrality for all family members, our regular hangout was chosen. In my book they sell the best coffee...More

We had a nice coffee and breakfast at bootleggers, the cortado and latte with soymilk are good. For breakfast we choose the granola and the chia pudding with strawberries and the both were full of flavour! We can recommend the place, also for vegans/vegaterians.

It’s a Cape Town chain , always bustling and busy , good coffee and Caesar salad . Overhead lighting is a bit migraine inducing though .

What an excellent service! We were 9 to find a table and it was crowded already. All of the staff was very helpful and we had a great breakfast. The poached eggs with avocado are great! And coffee is really good.

and the nice thing is (like in all Bootleggers) dogs are made welcome. A nice menu that has something to offer to everybody. The burgers were nice, the chips crisp and the salmon salad fresh.

The coffee is good but the Burgers are not! I had to send it back as it was raw, the chips were cooked in old oil and there was no sauce as the menu described. There was no manager on duty and the one waitress...More

We had coffee early one Sunday morning at 07h30. The coffee is excellent and there is a range of muffins, croissants, rusks, and cake. There is ample, spacious seating and the service is good. The area is kept clean and it has a lovely vibe....More

Bootlegger is a hotspot in the area for breakfast, coffee, cakes and after work snacks and beers.We suppose we could go on for ages about how carefully we select each bean, where the little beans grow up (Guatamala, Costa Rica), the time these little guys take to get to SA (about 4 weeks) and the process they go through before they form part of the Bootlegger culture (ok, you get the idea, this could be a long sentence), but we won’t.
