The bistro-culture arrives on the Durban beachfront

With all that the Durban beachfront has to offer, a bistro-culture has always been a missing attraction – until now that is. The incomparable Café Jiran has taken the quintessential European sidewalk way-of-life and made it their very own.

Close to the action, close to the sea, a shady oasis with balmy breezes that flow off the Indian ocean, together with the very finest refreshments, all make the Café Jiran a venue that is rapidly becoming a ‘must-go-to’ for coffee aficionados, lovers of smoothies, and for a decidedly different approach to a tasty snack or relaxed evening dining.
