Linden’s best kept secret is out.
The coolest place to meet, eat and work while away in the morning or afternoon is at Gravity. For fresh wholesome breakfasts and lunches, made with love and flair.
Unassumingly tucked away behind palisades, you might drive straight past it. Big mistake. You’re missing out on your new best hangout. Keep an eye out for a crazy-looking painted Sable antelope on top of a blue wall and then park. If you can find a spot, that is. Gravity’s attracting many fans.
Rob Swanepoel is the main host. He took over Gravity on the 25th June 2016. And it’s his charisma that imbues this roadside diner with its relaxed personality, quirk, generous and friendly nature with some contemporary twists. Gravity is the official Linden Community Café.
Regulars will tell you there is no better coffee in Jozi. You’ll come because of the Gravity brew. And you’ll stay because of Rob and team’s fantastically fresh menu options (oh, and free wifi for all makes it even more attractive).
Favourite offerings include the imaginative vegetarian breakfast (although there’s also a hearty build-a-breakfast option), homemade crumpets and the tastebud-blowingly insane selection of Belgian waffles. If you’re lucky – and you usually are – you’ll be a guinea pig for samples of new food ideas (like the meltingly lovely little cinnamon shortbread buttons now served with your coffee, which began life as ‘what do you think about these, I need a second opinion’).
You won’t find fussiness or frou-frou frilliness here. Rob is uncompromising about freshness and fine ingredients. He knows a thing or two about taste combinations and how to put a plate together that’ll have you coming back for seconds.
Head southeast on Beyers Naudé Drive/M5 toward Princes Avenue. Turn left onto Mendelssohn Road. Continue onto 8th Street. Turn right onto 4th Avenue. Gravity Café will be on the right.
