I love 44 Stanley and its one of those Joburg places I wish I could beam directly into Cape Town so I can have it on my doorstep to go to regularly.
I had many a party at the old Colour Bar when I lived there, so it was a trip down memory lane to pop in there last week and check things out.
The area that was my old drinking hang out is now a bakery and restaurant, well known for their wide selection of artisan breads, excellent breakfast and lunches. Owned by Marisa and imported directly from PE, they have turned this into a chilled out, but funky place.
The sandwiches which are literally over stuffed with delicious fillings and made with their own hand crafted breads are excellent value.
I love the shops at 44 Stanley and its always nice to visit and see what has changed. My other favourite place for breakfast or lunch is ‘The Slavation Cafe’.
