welcome to sola

Sola cafe is located in the heart of Grahamstown, at the North end of Thames in the Coromandel. It is a small bustling cafe which prides itself on excellent coffee, heavenly vegetarian fare and great service.

All the food is cooked on the premises with fresh top quality ingredients. It is warm and inviting in winter with interesting contemporary artwork on the walls. In summer there is Al fresco street dining or tranquil herb garden seating at the rear.

Today most travellers are surprised and delighted to discover this gem of a cafe that combines innovative food, quality coffee, good local arts and a mix of people from all different sectors of the community in this small country town. A place where anyone and everyone can just enjoy.

conscious consumersRecently Sola has joined a local initiative called conscious consumers.

Participants of this programme can be accredited with badges for environmentally conscious policies such as being at least 40% local, 10% organic, using free range eggs, biodegradable packaging and cleaning products, showing a commitment to recycling etc. The badges from this non-profit social enterprise are only awarded with proof and must be renewed yearly. Sola is well on the way to having many of these badges which means the public can feel assured they are making the right decision, enjoying good tasting food with a feel good factor.
