Even though they only opened last week, a feature on Molten Toffee is long overdue. The newest addition to Kloof Street’s coffee strip is owned and run by Robbi Gorelick and Cian van der Vyver, who worked together at another spot just up the road when they decided to spread their wings and open their very own coffee shop. The name Molten Toffee is borrowed from the Cockney rhyming slang meaning ‘coffee’ and yes (we know you’re wondering) they do have toffee and yes they will add the toffee to your coffee. It’s a beautiful, welcoming and intimate space – which is exactly what they were aiming for. Robbi and Cian say the idea has always been for this to be part office and part home, a permanent third hangout space for their customers. Leon Morland designed the look and feel of the space and the branding and identity was done by Christina Labuschagne. The brass counter, the lampshades, the square tables and the button stool are by Tim Church from Church Original Products. Also acting as a gallery of sorts, artworks by Windows.03 (Black Koki x Ello Xray Eyez x Jean de Wet) are currently on display and for sale.
Molten Toffee serves Deluxe coffee, fresh juices and a variety of fresh pastries; check the deli fridge and the blackboard to see what the flavour of the day is. They may or may not expand their menu and they may or may not open a bar, so watch this space.
