Merchants Cafe Ceramics

Made with love, pride, fun and pleasure, our item of the day is a ceramic work of art. Tammy and Liam of Merchants on Long commissioned Michael Chandler to design their official crockery for Merchants Café, and he put together this delicately beautiful set of dishes, inspired by the iconic Long Street building’s Victorian heritage and façade. The gorgeous white and cobalt blue ceramic pieces will be used in the café and will, thankfully, also be on sale at Merchants on Long. They range from R120 for a small hand-crafted tea cup, up to R900 for a large platter. Pop in and see them for yourself at Merchants on Long, 34 Long Street, Cape Town. Alternatively contact them on 021-422-2828 or email info@merchantsonlong.com. P.S. Merchants Cafe launches Eight, their first pop-up restaurant, this week, starting 1-3 November and then again on 5-7 November. Only 28 seats are available over the six evenings, so call the shop on the number above to book your spot. Text: Monde Mtsi
