Profile Friday | Meet Moira Manson

Five months ago Moira opened Cafe Barber at The Quarter in Ballito Business Park. The new barber shop offers a traditional barber feel but with a few modern touches. Each station has a TV that allows you to watch sport or other interesting ‘guy’ stuff while getting your hair cut, there is a blends of modern decor but old school barber furniture and the coffee station goes down well. In the past five months I’ve visited Cafe Barber a couple times and enjoyed the experience – here is Moira Manson and her Profile Friday.

Hops. It’s great food, casual atmosphere and the one in Ballito has a great view

Best place for sun-downers in Ballito, on a Friday afternoon, after a hectic week?

Wakaberry, Hops and Beachbums

Umfolizi game reserve. Pure peace and quite…simple.
