Posie’s – an exciting new café destination with unique retro features – has just opened at C20 Galerie. Located in Cape Town’s hip and trendy Woodstock precinct, C20 Galerie is an interiors destination store that sells mid-century modern collectibles and a range of revamped pieces. The vibrant new coffee shop is named after the daughter of the owner, Emma de Crespigny, a design dealer and collector who studied at Cooper–Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum in New York.

As to be expected, Posie’s offers freshly brewed coffee and a variety of delicious pastries. Posie’s will be introducing a line of gluten-free sweets and will be expanding their existing menu to include a breakfast and light lunch option. Posie’s also boasts an eclectic mix of modern and vintage style décor that creates a unique atmosphere – great for inspiring creativity and social engagement! The walls of the coffee shop act as a temporary gallery space for well-known local artists.


Visitors to the coffee shop are also welcome to wander through the adjacent C20 Galerie showroom, where a variety of original 20th century furnishings, lighting, and decorative pieces from France, Germany, North America and Italy are on display. What’s more, the owner is a gifted designer with the ability to modify or reproduce valuable and rare pieces, making them affordable and accessible to the public. The space also has an on-site collection of books and original catalogues, a treat for customers and design enthusiasts who can look forward to a wide array of products, both antique and made-to-order, such as Art Deco wallpaper and fabrics, custom upholstery, and lighting whilst enjoying a cappuccino and a lively chat.
