Coco Safar, a patisserie and restaurant based in Sea Point, Cape Town, has been recognised by Food and Wine magazine for baking some of the best croissants in the world in a recent article, alongside bakeries from Melbourne, Paris and Tokyo.
Food and Wine has a viewership of over 7.5 million people, with over 3.5 million Instagram followers and more than 27 million monthly page views on its website. “We are grateful to all of our customers in Cape Town and around the world who have shown us love over the years and made our passion possible by supporting us day after day, even during lockdown when this daily indulgence, the humble croissant, brought a little bit of comfort into people’s homes,” says Wilhelm Liebenberg, Co-founder of Coco Safar. “And we take great pride in making an exceptional croissant at the tip of Africa using only local ingredients, when we were in fact told that it could not be done.”
This is not the first time that the establishment has made international headlines – Bloomberg was recently quoted, headlining an article about Coco Safar as “Now you can put the world’s best coffee in your Nespresso machine”. Forbes USA was also quoted not long after, saying “Coco Safar paves the way in luxury coffee” and L’Officiel Paris as saying “Best breakfast in town and without any doubt the best coffee and café in the world.”
The Coco Safar founders and executive team have spent an incredible amount of time, energy and passion investigating, researching and perfecting their offering, and will be selectively rolling out in major style capitals of the world, including New York, Paris, London and Tokyo.
