I'm definitely not the type of person that walks into a regular coffee shop or coffee bar and orders the 'chocolatey one with sprinkles' – if you get my drift.
While I do still add milk (although no sugar), I am more inclined towards straight up flat whites or lattes, 'and make that a double!'.
But there is a certain spot I always head to when the craving for 'ice coffee' hits.
And it's not just any ice coffee... it's a freezochino.
I was first introduced to this wondrous, 98% fat-free, dairy-free drink a couple years ago by a good friend who (now) lives down the road in Sea Point. Every time I go back, I always think of her when I'm having one.
I hadn't had one in ages though, and suddenly got the craving this past weekend. I ended up venturing to Cattura at about 9am, and left at 12:30, after bumping into various people and enjoying an 'original coffee' freezo and then a lazy brunch. I also took pleasure in introducing Mr fabulosity to his first Freezo – he chose the hazelnut and vanilla combo. They are R30 a pop, but oh-so-worth it, and seemingly decadent, while actually being pretty friendly on the thighs.
So if you haven't tried a Cattura freezo yet, you are officially missing out – and all us freezo-fans can attest to that.
Other good things to note about Cattura:
-They stay open til late (generally about 10pm or midnight on weekends)
-They have karaoke on Thursday evenings
-With each coffee you order, you get a complimentary doughnut
-They have big screen TVs
-They have boston brewery's beer on tap
-They have regular specials*, so look out for these
