THE VILLAMAR MISSION

Right from the start, we have had a vision to provide a quality experience centered around food that is inspired by the Marra family’s Italian-South African heritage.  At its core lies three basic elements of good Italian fare: freshly roasted coffee, good quality cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil, and aged balsamic vinegar from Modena Italy. 

Through hard work, intense passion and dedication, Villamar and its our working facets have done exactly what we set out to do. From the lingering smell of roasting coffee beans to the delicious taste of fresh baked bread, we have created a place of culinary and coffee perfection.

The year 2018 was explosive for Villamar, so much so that the old Roastery building was converted into a production kitchen where the smell of freshly baked breads and patisserie greets you in the mornings.  Properly leavened sourdoughs and ciabattas baked to a puffy golden brown, with crispy exteriors, line the baker’s tables ready for service in the restaurant or to be distributed to customers on order.  The croissants, which are both huge and perfectly flaky, are complimented with various sweet or savoury toppings.  Burgers are served on a puffy, moist brioche bun while the sesame encrusted bagels have customers returning for more every week.  A gelato machine, imported from Italy and one of only a handful currently in South Africa, has been churning non-stop since its arrival.  Basic flavours that are always available at Villamar (1ltr, 500ml or 175ml containers) are Mixed Berry, Chocolate, Vanilla, Pistachio & Lime, Rum & Raisin and Salted Caramel and they are available in a variety of dietary specifications.

These ideas have led to Villamar creating its own cured meats, freshly made pastas and pasta pockets with deliciously fresh fillings.  On the menu we have bressaola, prosciutto, salami, pancetta and a coffee cured, smoked bacon. Vegetables and herbs from our garden and free-range eggs from the hens on the farm. 

Lastly, but certainly not least, one can find our coffees on the shelves in 1kg, 250g or as Nespresso compatible PODS.  You can ask our informative staff to grind your coffee to the exact specification needed for your preferred brewing technique (plunger, Aeropress, that good old camping tin pot from your granddad) and you can choose from a wide variety of single origin beans (Brazil, Colombia, Guatemala, Costa Rice, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda and the occasional limited edition – keep your eye on our social media platforms!) or expert blends to create a symphony of flavours.

The Villamar package certainly speaks for itself – pop by and enjoy a delicious coffee and heavenly breakfast… you won’t be disappointed!

Coffee Cups
Would definitely recommend. We had my wife's birthday there. I dealt with Lucar who made it very easy and was very accommodating.
They were will prepare when we got there. The food was great. The staff were friendly and helpful.
All in all, a very good experience.
