I was at the cafe next door this morning that was not open on time, and incredibly dismissive of me. Being turned away after wanting a smoothie, I figured I'd go to this vida next door to get something anyways to start off my day. I was greeted with the friendliest of staff who immediately brightened my day. Not only... More

I go here (Vida on Roeland Street) quite often as I work upstairs - Yes, I am addicted to your coffee :) Today, my day started out pretty terrible (one of those days :/). As soon as I got to Vida, their friendliness and smiles turned my day around! The staff are always super amazing! They always make a point... More

My comments apply to many different Vida outlets in the Cape, whether in CT, Claremont, Hout Bay, Sea Point, Mouille Point, V&A, Camps Bay, etc., they're all the same. From being an enthusiastic multi times per day adherent of Vida when it first opened, it's frankly become yet another bland coffee outlet that's convenient and not much else - certainly... More

I ducked into Vida e Caffe looking for some space to work for an hour. Vida fit the bill serving nice coffee with comfortable bench seating, power sources at every table and fast free wifi. It wasn't crowded, which was perfect. The pop electronic music created a cool vibe and place to work as I sat and sent a few... More

I am currently a part time student at a photography school housed in the same building. Coffee breaks are amazing when you go downstairs for a quick take away, and are greeted with friendly, efficient staff getting your order out in record time. Thank you!!!!!

we are very fussy coffee drinkers. once we had worked out that the coffee was good at Vide e caffe, we found their franchise everywhere. If you are from Melbourne - rest assured that the coffee is good enough for you.

Me and my colleague regularly visit Vida a Cafe in Wembley Centre. Needless to say that we were incredibly disappointed when our weekly ritual was interrupted due to the shop assistant informing us that we could not purchase our usual sandwiches, because they had run out of bread. Undeterred we approached our second choice coffee shop (which shall remain nameless)... More

I am a proud Vida e Caffe loyalty card holder and enjoy the coffee blend at least once a day. Good service, staff and vibe. Even just for a take away.
