Some coffee shops are nestled in hidden alcoves or perched between a bookshop and a boutique. Some are stranded in the middle of busy office blocks and some are straining for air in crowded malls. But the coffee shop-cum-bakery-and-boutique-and-interior design studio Soet Emporium sits on the corner of Durbanville’s Oxford Street and Wellington Road like a bold fashion statement.
It’s a meeting place in the heart of Durbanville where coffee connoisseurs, friends, mothers, business people, fashionistas and décor enthusiasts come to indulge in the impressive variation of Soet Emporium services.
Owners Leigh Leonard and Zillah Brits have taken their concept store to a new level of innovation, charm and comfort and established Soet Emporium, incorporating Soet Bistro, Soet Café Bakery, Güzel Interiors and Zillah Prêt-à-Porter. The artful fusion of chic elegance and rustic cosiness gives Soet Bistro an enchanting atmosphere.
