There is a new coffee shop open at the Station Drive precinct in Durban, and it’s called Parkside. Yes they are pouring silky smooth and oh-so tasty espresso shots, using Colombo Coffee beans. You’ll find Parkside in The Station at 39 Station Drive, which is just off Umgeni Road in Morningside.
I may be slightly obsessed with this interior… especially the black and copper/rose gold coffee machine!
The Station is a creative new space in the precinct, and is home to designer, vintage wear, photographers and good coffee. Parkside have free wifi so it is a great spot to get to those emails while enjoying a cup of coffee. Also, make sure you take cash or have the Zapper app to pay for your coffee as they don’t have card facilities at present.
Run by Dan, Parkside also offer an assortment of fresh and healthy lunches. From salads, to quiches, and more healthy goodness, Parkside fits right into the healthy lifestyle of Durban.
There are two tables inside The Station and a few places to sit on the verge outside, which really makes Parkside a unique Durban experience. The Station owner, Paul Basson, and his team have plans for an art park outside so this precinct really is starting to boom into something proudly authentic for Durban.
So the next time you have a moment or are in the Morningside area, get to Parkside and grab a coffee to go or sit down for coffee and lunch.

Parkside is open Monday to Friday 7am – 4pm and on Sundays from 8am – 1pm.
