Starbucks opens at Paarden Eiland

by Kyla Van Heerden

A brand-new Starbucks has opened in Paarden Eiland, a buzzing, scenic industrial area of designer public spaces, towering warehouse restaurants, public libraries, outside pavilions, and quirky stores selling vintage fashion, upcycled furniture and antiques located between Salt River and Milnerton.

With its interlacing harbour, rail, bicycle paths, and MyCiti Bus routes, the Paarden Eiland home for the newest Starbucks sits within an edgy, fast-growing neighbourhood of hipster cafes, intimate restaurants and galleries in renovated factory spaces decorated with expressive murals.

Store concept

Paarden Eiland Starbucks is designed as a multifunctional social space that encourages working alone in the quieter sections or as a group. Come and brainstorm around tables, share ideas, opinions and friendly conversations in a creative atmosphere fuelled by the delicious aromas of freshly ground, hand-crafted coffees.


Its array of comfortable chairs, plenty of plug points, super-fast WIFI and upmarket industrial design is softened by a delightful assortment of living greenery. Guests can gather and enjoy any of their favourite Starbucks beverages with our new range of freshly made food, in-store or as a grab-n-go on the way to work, sitting in traffic, rushing to a meeting, or on the commute to or from Cape Town CBD.


Paarden Eiland Starbucks is proudly managed by Jessica Mamabolo. Jessica and her team see this store as the perfect place to engage with different people while enjoying a world-class experience of personalised service and a hand-crafted, ethically sourced coffee or tea.


Jessica is all about being there for the next person, paying it forward, and being the best she can be for her guests and her team. She invites everyone to come and experience this special space. She said, “Someone once told me, ‘It’s okay to slow down; just make sure you don’t stop.’ I believe our new store is the perfect place to slow down in the midst of the busy world around us.”
