In the warm heart of Paarl resides our colourful coffee and deli shops at 217 Main Rd and the new Laborie Centre.
Kikka’s heart beats to the rhythm of Paarl’s pulse: this is where you come to mingle with the locals over a cup of aromatic coffee and a slice of our homemade cake. You can also stay for a delicious breakfast or lunch; buy some beautiful flowers or pop in to get a birthday gift.
Kikka has truly become a second home for many of our regulars over the past few years Our staff is a close-knit, well-trained team who is part of the Kikka family and aim to make your experience with us a warm and thoroughly enjoyable one.
Kikka is owned and run by Paarl resident, Karike, and her husband, Abe, who is a well-known chef in his own right. Abe focuses his culinary energy on making the most delicious sauces, oils and mayonnaise called Black Gold under his company, AB Products. These products are sold in our store and at other retail outlets.
In 2014, we started developing low carb versions for many of our menu items. This has proved to be exceptionally popular with the followers of the low carb diet movement. We are currently working on this range, so ask in-store or visit our online shop for more information about the available products.
We offer free Wi-Fi and is a popular meeting destination for business meetings, alongside friends who catch up over breakfast or lunch, tourists and visitors just passing through.
Our signature flower is the King Protea and we sell an impressive variety of local, in-season flowers too for all celebrations from birthday bouquets, matric farewell arrangements to funeral wreaths. Kikka is a complete sensory experience: The mouth-watering smell of coffee, cake, muffins and other delicious food being prepared in our kitchen is captivating. We also deliver cakes, platters and flowers to your door.
We offer a great range of gift options for children and adults, plus some great gift hampers, beautifully packaged for your convenience. Did we mention that we also cater for children? Your kids are always welcome at Kikka; we have a variety of toys available to keep the little ones busy.
Kikka has a long and interesting history. Below, we share a bit of our story. It all started with a boy meeting a girl…
Every meal should be savoured and we take great care in preparing memorable meals that will make you come back for more. We use fresh, locally produced ingredients like free-range eggs, fresh, real butter, fresh cream, juicy fruit and crunchy vegetables.
It is impossible to not find something for every taste from our extensive menu: Our breakfasts are scrumptious and include everything from the standard egg-and-bacon combinations to Eggs Benedict, croissants, muffins, omelettes, Frenchies, oats, classic piesangbrood (banana loaf) and pancakes. If you feel like a different, spoil-yourself breakfast, try the Dainty Delight: Quail eggs, shimeji mushrooms, tomatoes, smoked salmon, baby spinach and a drizzle of balsamic on rye.
Lunch options include an array of classic sandwiches, gourmet sandwiches, burgers on flat koek, salads, wraps, homemade pies, Quiche of the day and pastas. Other main meal options include pork belly, lamb shank and Catch of the day. For the health-conscious, we offer a Kikka original and incredibly tasty salad: Flavoured Curried Yoghurt Chicken with pineapple, cashews, Turkish apricots, coriander, and spring onion.
Kikka’s selection of hot and cold drinks is simply impressive! We have regular coffees, cappuccino, vanilla cappuccino, caffe latté, honey nut latté, taai (sticky) coffee with condensed milk, a selection of teas including Red Cappuccinos (yes, this is a tea!), loose leaf teas, flavoured coffees, milo, a variety of hot chocolates and chai tea. Our cold drinks include juices, gourmet shakes, smoothies as well as beers, wines and other alcoholic drinks.
We have developed an entire low carb menu due to popularity of this nutritional movement. Today, many of the much-loved items on Kikka’s menu are available as low carb meals (with a few, small but tasty adjustments!). We have also developed a delicious low carb bread mix for those enthusiasts who do not want to give up on their daily bread.

Bietjie van ‘n soet tand? (Bit of a sweet tooth?)
We bake all our cakes in the Kikka kitchen and use only the best, freshest ingredients. Think of all your favourite cakes – we probably make all of them. Some firm favourites include Orange, Carrot, Red Velvet, White Chocolate and Cashew Nut. Simply salacious! Don’t forget about our delicious cupcakes; spoil yourself or your loved ones with this special treat today!
We also offer a low carb version of some of our most popular cakes, like carrot cake.
Have your cake and eat it: We offer the perfect solution for those days when you can’t decide which cake to have: A cake platter – slices of four decadent cakes on offer. It is more than enough for two and deliciously indulgent for one!
We bake cakes on order for special occasions like weddings, birthdays, celebrations or just the fact that you made it through the week. Call us to order and we will deliver to your home or office. We also offer a tasting session for those who want to first sample so that they are sure they choose the right cake.
Flowers have a very special place in our shop – it is the source of our passion, creativity and inspiration. At Kikka, we have a soft spot for Proteas and fynbos which are indigenous to the area, and we try to include them in our floral designs in unique ways.
We carefully select only the best blossoms available every day and our floral creations are made with love and care. This is why we need some time with each arrangement; therefore it’s best to place your order a day or two in advance.
Our focus is on creating exceptional arrangements and so we only offer individual floral bouquets and not mass-produced flower arrangements*. *Unfortunately, we can’t assist with flowers for events like parties, weddings and funerals.
Why not organise a high tea with your girlfriends? Dress up in a beautiful hat and let us arrange a delicious selection of cakes, muffins, gourmet sandwiches, wraps, quiche and most importantly, sparkling wine!
Celebrate your birthday lunch without lifting a finger – except to select your dishes, of course. If you want something more serious than burgers and wraps, we can prepare plated meals for your guests of lamb shank, pork belly or fresh fish, paired with local wines from the area.
