Upon entering the venue, the warm welcoming smiles of owner Daniela Jansen van Vuuren and the barista, Maxy Cestellano, immediately put you at ease.
Gospel music fills the air while you indulge in a coffee with compliments of the Bottomless Coffee Band. Delectable cakes to enjoy with your cup of coffee are ordered from Probst next door.
“We decided to sell Catamaran Charters in 2015, and invested in an office building. While we were busy with the construction, my husband, Marko, said that the Lord told him to dedicate a space for Him in the building and that’s how Cornerstone came about. We decided to dedicate Unit 1 to the Lord, and opened for business in April 2016,” Daniela said.
She said the cake décor side of the business has been around for a while, and she initally operated from home.
“We decided to incorporate the two under one roof. At our cake décor part you find sprinkles, fondant, glitters and a variety of cake décor tools. We’re in the process of launching an online store to make shopping easier for our customers.”
The book shop offers a variety of bibles, inspirational books, ointment oil, gifts, key-rings, t-shirts and even baby grows citing bible verses.
“We also stock products from Camp David, and work hand in hand with pastor Patrick Britz from the Narraville Community Church. We don’t want to be a shop that just sells the word of God. We are here to lend a shoulder, an ear to listen or a prayer.”
Cornerstone is the perfect venue for bible study groups, and they have also hosted worship evenings on the rooftop of the building.
The shop is open from Monday to Saturday, 09:00 to 17:00, and again on Saturday from 09:00 to 13:00.
