Vida E Caffe, the South African coffee shop chain, is to open its second outlet in London.

The group, which operates 34 outlets in South Africa, has taken a former Starbucks venue in Soho’s Golden Square.

The group already operates one shop in Regent Street as well as a concession in the foodhall of Selfridges department store.

It has initial ambitions to open up to 10 outlets in London and to that end has retained Harper Dennis Hobbs, the property agent, to help it find sites.
