If you truly want to feel the impact of Jozi’s hustling spirit, step in to Marshalltown on a Monday morning. The flow of existence is pure poetry. It’s the onomatopoeia of car-beeping, quick-stepping, heel-clicking, coffee-sipping, shoulder-brushing, phone-checking excitement…
Wake up at Cramers Coffee
Cramers Coffee is ready to pick up the energy with their freshly percolated coffee, and homemade confectionary treats in a New York styled café. Pick up a flavoured iced Frappuccino to combat the heat, or go for a classic cappuccino. Sit down or takeaway, the café has you covered with quality service and delicious coffee.

Lunch at Lahlous
It’s a difficult name to say, but not a difficult place to enjoy. Lahlous looks Italian, but boasts a rich and diverse menu. It includes quick bites like a quarter chicken and chips, as well as meals that take a longer time and entertaining conversation to indulge in. We suggest the lamb curry! There are no words to describe this succulent, tender lamb, served on a bed of rice. Honestly, it tastes like something your mother made.

Sundowners at the Reef
The Reef Hotel is quickly becoming the place to be in Marshalltown. Reason being – the view from their rooftop bar is truly spectacular. Cocktail in hand, the city beneath you, you’ll feel the weight of the world melt off your shoulders.

Turn it up at Kama Sutra
The name is a little controversial, but don’t let that stop you! There’s a little feel of being in the Moulin Rouge, thanks to the décor and style of the bar, which boast dark colours and edgy designs. Sit down and take in the live music, or dance the night away. It’s a one-of-a-kind night out on the town, where you can find a diversity in both people and music.
