When you think of going to the movies, chances are the first thing that comes to mind is popcorn. And while that's great and all, what about having a freshly made muffin and cappuccino? Even better wouldn't it be nice to order that cappuccino and have it brought to your during the movie so that you can enjoy a hot coffee when the action begins and not just finish it while you're watching the 101 trailers?

Wouldn't it be even better to have a huge comfy seat that you can make yourself comfortable in, be able to recline in your seat and have a more intimate cinema experience?

You don't have the imagine all those things because that's the reality! With Ster Kinekor Gateway Theatre of Shopping in Durban, you can enjoy a hot muffin and coffee from Equatorial Coffee, a Corner Bakery product and enjoy a Cine Prestige experience. 

Corner Bakery is South Africa’s fastest growing bakery franchise group who not only have arguably the best pies but also their Equatorial Coffee counter. Equatorial Coffee uses only the finest Arabica and Robusta beans from all along the equator - Brazil, Guatemala, Tanzania and Ethiopia.

The brand has recently been given a dedicated space in the foyer of Ster-Kinekor at Gateway Theatre of shopping, set up with a Coffee Counter with a barista offering. The unique and tasty Gourmet (Infused) Muffin range from Corner Bakery has slowly been introduced to the mix, creating a bundle for movie fans looking for a rather warm, premium drink and snack.

This weekend I watched Fast and Furious: Hobbes and Shaw which was a visual feast, although it had a slightly unrealistic storyline and plot. 

I booked my ticket online on the Ster Kinekor website and had it printed at the self service station in the matter of a few seconds. I then hung around in the Prestige lounge and ordered my coffee and muffin combo - for only R60. They had lots of different options for each and I chose a cappuccino and caramel fudge muffin. I requested my order be brought to my seat in the movie after the trailers so that I could enjoy it hot during the movie.

The muffin was at the same high standard I'm used to from Corner Bakery. It was soft, scrumptious and so darn delicious! And cappuccino was absolutely amazing and satisfying.

At the moment it's only available at Ster Kinekor Gateway however I hope this option is available in other Ster Kinekors soon because I would love always have a coffee and treat with my movie experience - sometimes on their own and sometimes go all out with popcorn as well. And the R60 COMBO is a steal!
