If you know me well enough, you will know I love beautiful spaces and I adore sharing places that I come across to support new businesses. I was so pleased to spend a morning out catching up on my writing at Strada Cucina. It is near popular spots such as Gateway Hospital, Lucky Shaker and Buff Parlour yet it felt like I had escaped to Italy for the morning.
I treated myself to a scrumptious breakfast that was incredible. The ambience of this restaurant is perfect for a romantic date, a catch up with friends or if you just want to enjoy some coffee and catch up with some admin. I had a look at the full menu and it is extensive. Friends that have visited have suggested that I give the wood fired pizzas a try.
The decor is remarkable coupled with soothing music playing in the background it really does create quite the vibe. The prices are reasonable and the flavours that you receive are worth it. I sat at this restaurant and happily typed away for at least three hours without realising that so much time went by.
In Durban, I find that as locals we complain that there are not enough hotspots for us to go to and when something trendy comes our way we are too lazy to go out there and show support. If you have a favourite store, brand, restaurant , the only way for you and that brand to create a lasting relationship is by showing ongoing support, sharing your experience and by telling your friends and family about it. It is small gestures like these that makes a huge difference with startups and new businesses. Trust me it does not go unnoticed.
