How your café choice could be linking to your personality type.
The Mother City is known for its lush, natural beauty, hiking trails and wine routes. Cape Town is also home to a host of beautifully designed cafés. We see a café as a reflection of ourselves; our personalities, preferences and lifestyles. Last week, we put curated a list of cafés in Johannesburg that speaks to different personality types; now, let’s check out the vibe in Cape Town!
