Good news coffee lover’s of SA! The first South African branch of Starbucks is set to open on Thursday 21 April in Rosebank.
Situated on the corner of Tyrwhitt and Cradock avenues in a 485 m2 space, the full-service store will serve coffee sourced from Africa as well as other special Reserve™ coffees from around the world.
The exact menu and the pricing, however, remains a mystery, for the moment. (Although a menu, which features prices is currently on the local Starbucks site, a representative of Taste Holdings explains that it’s not the final version and is set to be updated in the next few days.)
A second branch is set to open later in the month at The Mall of Africa in Midrand.
The Rosebank store doors will open on Thursday 21 April from 7.30am to 10pm, so expect long queues for a few weeks – as experienced by the opening of Burger King in the Cape Town CBD! We’re sure it’ll be worth it to try one of their infamous Starbucks frappuccino’s or a caramel macchiato’s though!
From 22 April onwards, Starbucks will open slightly earlier, at 6.30am.
