Owner of Thyme Square Cof­fee & Gift Shop It’s Carla her­self who makes sure that ev­ery­thing runs smoothly at this pop­u­lar cof­fee shop. She bakes 90% of the cakes and doesn’t blink when you or­der a strong cap­puc­cino. “Since the park was de­clared a World Her­itage Site, our visi­tor pro­file has changed a lot: be­fore they were mostly South Africans, but these days most vis­i­tors – I’d say 65-70% – are for­eign­ers. What I like most is that ev­ery­thing here is just 5 min­utes away: work, home, the hair­dresser, shops, mas­sage ther­apy, good restau­rants. I know ev­ery­one and ev­ery­one knows me. Won­der­ful peo­ple live here.”
