It’s not every day that you get to linger alongside luxury of this kind, which makes NAKED @ Daytona so unique and special.

It’s quite an experience walking into Daytona which NAKED Coffee shares a space with; a lavish showroom surrounded by the smell of aromatic coffee that welcomes you with a seductive lure to sit down between the shiny supercars. You’ll soon come to the realisation that it’s the perfect, bespoke, inspirational space – that’s decked out with Paul Blomkamp’s work hanging on the walls – to work, get creative and meet for some incredible food and out of this world coffee that you just have to try for yourself.

Shaun Els and Victor Barbosa, who are well-known in the fashion industry too, originally launched NAKED in Melrose Arch in 2015 and are completely dedicated to the caffeinated beverage. Their regular travels add interesting ideas and flavours to the menu. NAKED @ Daytona currently boasts an all-day breakfast menu, with an exciting lunch menu to be launched in April. The breakfast menu is the perfect fit for businessmen who like to indulge in cars, coffee and banana bread, but also for the health-conscious who prefer gluten-free options and acai bowls. The smashed avo with pistachio and dukkah crumble is a big hit and if you’re keen on something other than coffee (which is weird when you’re at NAKED, just sayin’), you’ve got to try their ginger Bundaberg.
