The Florida Road strip is the heart for Durban’s foodie culture and is a favourite with holidaymakers, influencers, and families.

Many Durbanites spend almost every day on the strip during winter hunting down a cuppa joe to keep them warm.

Here’s a look at where you can get some quality brew on Florida Road. 

City Roast 

City Roast has become a favourite with caffeine lovers in Durban. The coffee shop is known for its friendly staff, delicious breakfasts, and, of course, the perfect cup of joe. City Roast’s ‘Suspended Coffee’ initiative allows customers to give back to someone in need, especially on cold winter days, which gives them a five-star rating in our book! 

Love Coffee

If you love coffee and the environment, then you need to pay Love Coffee a visit. Order a flat white and peanut butter biscuit for the ultimate morning pick-me-up. Its décor will help you create an Instagram-worthy picture. This coffee shop also cares about its impact on the planet! The cafe “uses local talent to create eco-friendly, low carbon footprint food and coffee”. 


It’s all about variety at Starbucks! The international coffeehouse opened its Florida Road location in 2017 and it’s already a top favourite with influencers, entrepreneurs, and Durban coffee lovers. Its variety of coffee drinks is what makes it special. Iced Caffè Mocha, caramel macchiato, white chocolate mocha, and its signature Frappuccinos – the list is endless! 

Skyline Coffee Roasters

This roastery is for coffee lovers who know more than a thing or two about what it takes to make a good cuppa. If you can hold a lengthy conversation with your local barista about the aroma, flavour, body, and acidity of your coffee, then Skyline Coffee Roasters is the place to be. “Their drinks are some of the smoothest, easy drinking coffees out there. Each drink is made from beans that have been carefully sourced, expertly roasted and then wonderfully brewed. The coffees are always delicious and poured to perfection,” Coffee Shop Blue described the roastery. Skyline Coffee Roasters is just off Florida Road but very much a part of the strip’s coffee culture. 

Seattle Coffee Co.

The Seattle Coffee Co. describes its shops as “urban refuges where you can escape, recalibrate and walk away strengthened to face another day in the city” and its location in Florida Road is no different. Whether you fancy an espresso-based beverage or an iced coffee, baristas will make your coffee just the way you like it! 

Jacksonville Coffee

Jacksonville Coffee’s Moses Mabhida Stadium café has been described as the “coffee king” of Durban, but its Florida Road location is its best-kept secret. “The baristas have always produced top rate coffee. A personal favourite is the Blondie (with white chocolate),” one coffee lover wrote on TripAdvisor. Located within Hertex Fabrics building, it’s the perfect spot for those quick business meetings.
