A CONTEMPORARY, ALL-DAY CAFÉ–BAR
— a place for socializing & connecting while enjoying the finer things in life – from morning until night

— the idea of the cafe as an all-day space might be familiar to anyone loves traveling in Italy, France or Spain, but it is true in the Middle East, and it has become more common in parts of North America. Australia, and many other countries. There is no reason cafes should not become a vibrant part of people’s lives in the evening in Cape Town, the way we have made them into a joyous part of every morning over the last 15+ years.

EXCEPTIONAL, ALL DAY FOOD & DRINK
— extending your favourite local cafe from morning till night (for now Thu-Sat until LATE). After-work drinks, evening small plates, cocktails, spirits, wines & beers, coffee or tea and some amazing desert, or even a nightcap on your way home.

— offering exceptional cocktails, wonderful small plates savoury & sweet, a curated list of wines and craft beers.

— …and of course the full selection of high end speciality coffee, served across all different brew methods and a great selection of fine Nigiro leaf teas.

TEMPERANCE
— whether one of your party doesn’t drink (or none of you drink) or you just want to go slow, you will feel at home at Origin. This is the café as a social space extended to the evening hours.

— Origin’s full speciality coffee & tea offering and different brew methods will be available, and our bartenders will also offer a range of exciting non-alcoholic cocktails.

    Great inventive and delicious food, all beautifully presented. The Manager is clearly very passionate about the food and took the time to describe each dish to us. If you love Origins for breakfast, brunch or coffee you must try the evening menu, we will be back!

    Unfortunately was a very quiet evening and we were the only table in the Restuarant. So at times waiter kept trying to take food/plates away while we were talking- need to read the table

    The Origin Team did a fantastic job at making us feel welcome at Cafe Noir last night. Nicholas's cocktails and Mongezi's small plates are something to experience. I love the African influence in the dining - the pap and chakalaka stood out as my favorite dish! Hats off. This is a gem of a place.

    Sophisticated yet approachable and familiar flavors, this is a fine dining experience that you can enjoy in a relaxed and intimate atmosphere. Every morsel was well thought out - from textures to heat level and plating. The cocktails are playful with some classic elements and well-balanced. Overall I can't wait to see how the concept grows.
