Don’t be fooled by the unpretentious outside of the Fifth Wave. You can sit outside on the small wooden deck that leads into the narrow interior, or inside on an eclectic collection of benches and tables made to accommodate the narrow area.  The tantalizing aroma of coffee draws you to the back of the café where Amedeo is working his trade.  He is a true Coffee Aficionado and loves the manual brew method.  He crafts your choice of coffee with fervid care and the result is bliss.

Owner and Barista Amedeo working his Trade

He also makes some interesting sandwiches with a selection of breads, and his Home-made Almond Milk is almost as good as his coffee.

His wisdom for the day was “As oceans bring the continents together, so coffee brings people together.”  Sounded good coming from him!!  This was our ‘go to’ place for good coffee while we were in Jeffreys Bay.  In fact, we could not find coffee as good as Fifth Wave during our week in Cape Town!!

The Interior is Narrow But Quaint

This little café is found tucked between two retail shops on the left of Checkers in the Magnatubes Trio Complex in Da Gama Road.  The amazing rich coffee smell is a treat alone.

What’s Hot September 2019

SPRING in South Africa: blossoms, fields of wild flowers in the desert, babies born in the wild, whales visiting from Antarctica, migrant birds arriving, festivals and happenings. There are places to go and things to see. I have chosen a few that are exciting and fun.


Best Day Trips Out of Johannesburg

Johannesburg, the city of GOLD. This bustling, multi-cultural city is Africa's Economic Powerhouse with a population of over 13 million people. Just an hour or 2 out of the city and you can be in open big 5 bushveld, play golf at a premier course at Sun City, or explore the wonders of the Cradle of Mankind.


Beautiful Ballito

Ballito is a tropical paradise in the heart of the Dolphin Coast. Nestled between sugar cane fields and golden beaches, with sparkling blue seas, surfing dolphins and breaching whales, this a favoured beach holiday venue for South Africans and visitors alike. There is more to Ballito than the superb beaches. Great restaurants, ziplines, microlight flights, action for the kids and markets to explore.


Best burger in Cape town

The mother city ‘Cape Town’ home to the iconic Table Mountain and an ever-growing creation of not only hipsters and their unique culture, but also great burger joints. To pick a favorite or claim one as the best, is dependent on personal taste. Each one has a unique flavor combination and creative flare.
