DOPPIO ZERO – the True Story
Doppio Zero started out as a bakery and al fresco cafe in Greenside In March 2002 by entrepreneurs Paul Christie & Miki Milovanovic. Made popular by its freshly made artisan ciabatta, exclusive bakery and meeting place, the aroma of baking kept people coming and they knew they had something special. Over time this evolved into a full service restaurant with a wide range of Mediterranean specialties and traditional Italian fare.
With the success of the Greenside restaurant, Doppio Zero began a quick expansion. Doppio Zero currently has restaurants in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town and Alexandria in Egypt. Each of our restaurants has a unique personality but all share the common embodiment of European café culture and the same passion for quality food and service.
Doppio Zero started out in Greenside in March 2002, as a corner street style bakery and café, serving breakfasts, thin-crust gourmet pizzas and café style Mediterranean food. Since then it has grown to 12 restaurants with a complimentary blend of franchise, corporate and joint venture partnerships and the first international restaurant having opened in Alexandria, Egypt, in 2013.
We believe in the goodness of quality, this attitude has shaped our hands-on approach at Doppio Zero. Every season we revisit our menu’s with some fresh ideas and seasonal ingredients. We love entertaining and so we celebrate each season with fresh campaigns and specials on dishes or products that we love.
