Lovely little coffee shop. Well known for delicious banana bread. Menu is diverse and well thought out. Coffees are excellent quality. Advise ordering a flat white with macadamia milk for an extra kick. Also suggest sitting upstairs for social distancing.

What a lovely coffee shop. We walked in to find out if they were halal friendly. Turns out that they have these hot, buttery croissants that are halal certified. Also, they prepare meat separately in their kitchens so no contamination.

They serve very tasty breakfasts and light meals. The coffees brewing here are top notch. You will not make a mistake to visit African Roots for a meal or coffee. Yes it is true some places the owners actually do care and are present to

Outstanding hospitality, the most amazing and highly recommended omelette with arrabiata, mushrooms and bacon on the side complimented with wonderful coffee. 3 cups later I loved the last option being a cappuccino with macadamia milk, it's a must, this place is a must!

Best kept secret on the Lagoon Drive side of The Pearls centre. Unbelievable coffee, great milkshakes (try the cocoa flavour for something different!) and wonderful fresh cakes. Farm-to-table style breakfast is a great way to start the day. Friendly and efficient service.
