Review
This installation of the Fego Caffé chain is located in the V&A Waterfront mall, inside a bookstore called Exclusive Books. Past the racks of magazines and books in the back, with a combination of outdoor seating at a rear patio and indoor seating at many chairs in front of the café counter, you'll find a throng of foreign tourists having a seat with a little coffee and food. Using a three-group WEGA, they pull large single shots with a thinner, even medium brown crema. Served in Fego logo cups with a glass of water on the side. It has a flavor of mild spice, and it is neither potent nor too watery. A very basic, simple espresso. R10.
