Memory Lane


Cafes Weddings Shops

Memory Lane in Port Elizabeth's trendy Richmond Hill district is not just another a coffee shop! It is a warm and welcoming venue for special occasions, a shop full of interesting and delicious items from a bygone era and so much more - a real treat in Port Elizabeth and indeed the Eastern Cape.

Whether you have decided to enjoy a delicious breakfast, tea or a leisurely lunch, the delightful Memory Lane in a leafy part of Richmond Hill, is an ideal choice. Whether you are meeting friends, catching up with business acquaintances or just relaxing with a book there will be a spot for you.

You will find Memory Lane at 2 Bingley Street, Richmond Hill, Port Elizabeth (on the corner of Bingley and Newington off Westbourne Road, diagonally opposite the lovely St Cuthbert’s Church behind the Oval) in an old colonial home which was built in the late nineteenth century.

This charming home, where the original wood and delightful features of a bygone era add to the charm of Memory Lane, you will feel you have gone back in time as you unwind and relax in the peace and tranquility.

Before you even try the superb filter coffee or browse through the tempting menu, take time to meander from room to room to look at an interesting variety of furniture, collectables, gifts, plants, smocked children’s dresses and a wide variety of delicious ‘culinary heaven’ products.

Memory Lane in Richmond Hill uses only the freshest organic products from the surrounding Eastern Cape farm lands when preparing their meals.

Breakfasts and light lunches include quiches, delicious homemade pies, curries and much more. The cakes are to die for!
