The Poké Co’s 5th store in 4 years now open in the Cape winelands


POKÉ is all the flavours we love in sushi, rediscovered in a unique, spontaneous, and convenient way. And now health-conscious lovers of fresh, uncomplicated, honest food in Stellenbosch can enjoy this fast, casual-dining experience at the Poké Co’s fifth store at 27 Plein Street.

Besides the core offering of poké bowls, the menu includes smoothie bowls, healthy-breakfasts, poké burritos (burritos, but think sushi), homemade cold-pressed juices, hot beverages, and premium coffee, all complemented by a design-driven space and curated music that allows the customer to escape their busy day, even for a brief moment.

Co-founder Andrew Flanagan was born into a family with deep roots in Cape Town’s fishing industry. At 30 he realised that poké was what the Cape seafood scene was missing. He was right – what started out in a tiny Woodstock kitchen has grown to four busy Poké Co shops and the Stellenbosch store makes five.

The menu is simple but caters for vegan, meat, and sushi lovers. The most popular dish on the menu is The Leeward, a poké bowl with salmon, cucumber, edamame beans, pickled beetroot, avo, toasted coco flakes and the delicious House Ponzu and Creamy Togarashi dressings. Feel like something unique? With the Build-Your-Own-Bowl concept, the combinations are endless in your pursuit to find your perfect fix.

Customer service and convenience is one of the brand’s values, and the Poké Co’s handy loyalty app allows customers to order ahead for either delivery or pick-up and earn loyalty points at the same time. It’s available on Android and Apple.

“It was an easy decision to open our fifth store in Stellenbosch. There’s a growing emphasis here on living a healthy, active lifestyle,” says Flanagan. “We seek to become a platform that can empower people to make healthier decisions by turning salads into a lifestyle. I’m really excited to serve the Stellies community with a new eating experience that I know they’re going to love.”
