Café du Cap is a lifestyle brand created by Samantha Mellor. With 10 years fashion experience at South Africa’s leading women’s retail outlet, Woolworths, it makes sense that lifestyle and fashion is at the core of this celebrated South African / French inspired brand.

Fueled by her annual trips to the family home in Provence, Sam’s passion for travel and the resort lifestyle is shared by her regular loyal customers, who receive early notice when it comes to the release of new kaftan ranges.

Originating as ‘Popyacollar’, an online women’s boutique specializing in Riviera-inspired kaftans, sourced from both France and India, Café du Cap has quickly expanded into a lifestyle destination offering vintage French linen and furniture, alongside kaftans and café-style baguettes and sandwiches, washed down with crisp rosé wine or an espresso.

The very first Café du Cap retail offering is in Cape Town (Cartel House – 113 Loop Street). A natural destination for people who share the same spirit of leisure, good food and travel.

The du Cap range of accommodation has launched – also on Loop Street, by way of two luxury apartments. More about that here.

Cabine du Cap – a luxury, off-the-grid cabin hidden somewhere in the Klein Karoo mountains just 2 hours out of Cape Town, will be available from August 2017.
