Where to Refuel After Your Durban Parkrun
Whether you’re running or spectating, a post parkrun coffee is essential. Here are some of the best breakfast spots near parkrun events in Durban.
With dozens of parkrun events scattered all over the country, lazy Saturday lie-ins are a thing of the past for the hundreds of South Africans who take part each week. A warm climate and beautiful route options combine to make the parkruns in and around Durban some of the most popular events in the country. Whether you’re a parkrunner or just on the lookout for some new weekend breakfast spots, here are some of the best post parkrun refuel stations in Durban.
North Beach, Suncoast Casino Promenade
If you’re keen to mingle with your fellow runners or you’re just eager to find the nearest coffee, head to Mugg & Bean in the Suncoast Centre – it’s right next to the parkrun meeting point. If a change of scenery and an affordable breaky sounds appealing, Café Jiran is only minutes away. Otherwise, if you’d like to stay close to the beach, Circus Circus Café is a great option.
Umhlanga, Umhlanga Pier
Take advantage of being so close to the gorgeous Oyster Box Hotel and treat yourself to a decadent buffet breaky accompanied by one of the most beautiful views in Durban. If you’d prefer something a bit more affordable, Vovo Telo do delicious coffee and wholesome breakfasts. Alternatively, meet your fellow runners at the nearby BTW for a quick cuppa.
Ballito, Sugar Rush Park
Delish Sisters at the Litchi Orchard is must for anyone looking for a tasty and super healthy post run breaky. If you’re craving a sweet treat or a more traditional breakfast, The Waterberry Coffee Shoppe is a great option. Alternatively, you can grab a quick coffee and chat to some other runners at the Sugar Rush coffee shop.
Shongweni, Durban Shongweni Club
If you’re on the hunt for the nearest coffee, the Saddle Inn inside the club itself is your best bet – look out for your fellow runners as this is also the post run meeting spot. If a change of scenery is what you’re after, head over to Oscars Café or Stretta Café. For plenty of choice and a cute outdoor setting Oscars is great, but if you’re looking to try something trendy and different, Stretta is a winner.
Amanzimtoti, Beach Rd
Revel in this gorgeous beach setting for a little bit longer by grabbing a simple breakfast and a good coffee at the Thirsty Whale nearby. If you’re in the mood for something a little more special, head to the gorgeous Giorgio’s Restaurant at The View hotel – here you can enjoy a top-notch breakfast and stunning sea views.
