Durban beachfront finally gets new kiosks

2013-11-26 09:39

Durban – By early next year visitors to Durban’s beachfront will be spoiled for choice when it comes to after-swim-and-sun snacks.

Two of the new kiosks will be open in time for the festive season, while the three bigger restaurants are expected to open their doors to the public early next year.

The Surf Riders Café at Addington Beach will offer a restaurant and coffee shop in a unique and relaxed atmosphere which encapsulates the Durban surfing culture with a surf museum display forming part of the theme. A retail store outlet for surf goods and surf wear as well as an operator for Roxy Learn 2 Surf and equipment rentals is also on the cards.

Set to open in time for the festive season at the South Beach Kiosk, Afro's is a Shisanyama restaurant which will look to “replicate, with some creative licence the Shebeen environment of South Africa.” They will provide amongst other dishes a selection of speciality meat dishes cooked in various open flame methods within a relaxed environment. Unlike most South African fast food chicken outlets, Afro’s is based on African and not on Portuguese or American recipes.

Among the restaurants opening early next year, the Durban Beach Club at Dairy Beach will aim to bring a slightly more formal dining experience to the beachfront. Signed by Sadha Naidoo of Calypso Property Investments (Pty) Limited, the premises will offer casual meals during the day and transform into an elegant dining restaurant at night, complete with crisp linen and glassware.

The Bike and Bean will also be bringing a unique offering to the Country Club Kiosk. Bike and Bean is an informal facility from which the public could hire bicycles and grab a bite to eat. Beach paraphernalia such as towels, buckets and spades, will also be sold.
