“Home is where friendly paths cross, and for that brief moment in time, the whole world looks like home.”

Hermann Hesse



The Rcaffe experience permeates all your senses: sight, smell, flavor, sound and atmosphere stirring a romantically familiar sense of deja vu.


Have you ever been drawn to a place, not quite certain what pulled you in, finding yourself giving in to the urge of exploring it further, only to discover that your expectation has been exceeded?


That’s the charm of Rcaffe.


Rcaffe is a theatrical fun, unique and playful experience, which creates a personal stage for each and every one of its visitors.




The décor is a creative expression of the Rcaffe philosophy. The cafe on long street has a romantic, bohemian funky feel to it, modeled by the creative flare of designer and artist, Brigitte Dewberry (Spred design) "I wanted to create a quirky fun and layered experience. Something that would engage the customers while they keep discovering the depth in the details”.


The décor and art features made from recycled magazines and books, records, vintage squash rackets, tape recorders and other reclaimed objects. This is what brings the “R” at Rcaffe to life.
