A multisensory high tea experience at a luxe café and pâtisserie in the heart of Sea Point designed to take your breath away.
Known for its heavenly coffee and award-winning pâtisserie and viennoiserie, Coco Safar in Sea Point’s Artem Centre evokes grand hotels of yore, with its plush vintage-inspired interiors. It has a decidedly luxurious edge, not often found in modern cafés, that’ll transport you to a salon in Salzburg the moment you step through the door. Imagine having a leisurely high tea delivered to your table on a vintage dining trolley by the pastry chef himself?
Paying homage to the glamorous afternoon-tea traditions of the 1940s and 50s in some of the world’s grandest hotels, Coco Safar’s high tea celebrates the decadent pastime with a contemporary twist – inviting visitors on a culinary journey designed to transport you from the city of Cape Town to Istanbul, Shanghai and beyond.
A trio of tours
There are three high-tea journeys to choose from, all of which feature classic afternoon-tea favourites with a couture twist, as well as some wonderfully whimsical theatrics – you’ll feel thoroughly spoiled, no matter which you opt for.

Croissant connoisseurs will feel like they’ve died and gone to pâtisserie heaven at Coco Safar, whose version of the viennoiserie earned them a spot in Food and Wine USA’s article “The Perfect Croissant”, where they received the accolade as “one of the best croissants in the world 2020” alongside iconic bakeries in Tokyo, Paris and Melbourne.
