Looking for good coffee in Swellendam, we’ve found it!

So why are Swellendammers loving Ikigai so much? Well, first things first – the coffee is superb. Ikigai is proudly associated with Origin Coffee so you can be sure the coffee is consistently top notch.  Their menu consists of lovely light meals and sweet treats ranging from familiar favourites to fresh and original options.  Apart from superb coffee and fabulous food Ikigai is immensely well curated and is a breath of fresh air with its trendy and modern look.  The shop holds beautiful gifts and decor sourced from talented South African crafters.

The decor and style is modern and minimalist yet inviting, cozy and relaxing.

Behind the (very successful) scenes of Ikigai is the founding sister-team, Elandi and Lizelle.  The Swellendam shop isn’t their first rodeo though.  The first Ikigai opened in Riversdal in November 2016 and was an instant hit.  Needless to say the sister-team hasn’t looked back and has big plans.  They are actively working on more Ikigai coffee bars in the small towns of the Overberg and Garden Route.

Stunning and trendy gifts and decor is sold in the shop, best part is it’s all by South African artists and crafters.

With so many cozy nooks and a fireplace we can just imagine lovely winter days spent enjoying some of the best coffee in Swellendam.  So if you find yourself in Swellendam or on your way to the Garden Route be sure to make a stop at Ikigai Coffee Bar & Deli (we’re pretty sure you’ll want to stop again in Riversdal for more of their superb coffee).

Thanks so much to the Ikigai team for taking time to sit down with us, we’re keeping an eye out for more Ikigai’s all over the Overberg.
