We Believe in Great food and happy clients
Owner Lee-Ann Benson has this to say: “Revelations as a coffee shop has been around for years – first as Evolution and then Revolution and finally since 2012 as Revelations when I bought the business.
The name came about as I wanted to keep the name similar to the previous names so that customers would still recognise it. My 90 year old grandmother suggested the name, which has a two -fold meaning, Revelations – as is uncovering / discovering something new, (as the new business/ new menu / new start) – but it is also the last book of the bible, so people can choose which interpretation they prefer.
Revelations is more than just a coffee shop – We have a large menu offering an extensive range of affordable and value for money items. We are passionate about food and believe in offering great food at reasonable prices. This is the place WHERE IT ALL COMES TOGETHER.
We operate as a Team and this is what makes us “work” – Teamwork and looking after your staff is where it all starts.
I am hotel trained (studied hotel management) and worked in various hotels in South Africa for over 20 years, before buying the coffee shop.”

lets get together
By day, Revelations is a cosy coffee shop where friends meet to share coffee, cakes and light meals. At night, it is transformed into a vibey eatery.
It is the meeting place in Grahamstown for family, friends, business associates and couples – in short, a place for everyone from early morning breakfast to drinks late at night.
With free WiFi, Revelations is also a favourite temporary study or work venue. Revelations is truly the place “Where it all comes together.“ If you’re looking for the perfect spot to host your next birthday party or event, the shaded courtyard is available for hire (catering options are also available.)
Revelations Coffee Shop is conveniently positioned in the secure Peppergrove Mall, where parking is free.
