Warm and Glad in JHB

Warm and Glad fills Brett's criteria for the café he's been longing for!

I have longed for a place dedicated to making you a cup of great coffee, a barista who will remember your name, a menu that won't make you broke, good music and wifi - free wifi.

The vast empty space in Johannesburg for cafés with warmth and heart is slowly, very slowly becoming filled with places like Warm & Glad.  

Warm & Glad fill my criteria beautifully; it is a large space filled with fantastic music on Vinyl, we're talking Radiohead, Curtis Mayfield and Florence & The Machine here, not the wrecked old moth eaten copies of Engelbert Humperdinck you got for 5 bucks from the Hospice shop.

"Like - Limited Editions" have their prints from local and international artists on the walls. Images from iconic Films like Annie Hall and Star Wars are ripped apart and re-imagined by Little White Lies. They also have a large selection of magazines from South Africa and the World. 

My coffee was good, my sandwich was delicious and reasonable, my barista friendly. I sprawled my life on a massive dining room table and spent the day. Its places like these that need to be all over Johannesburg, let's keep them alive.
