We recently had the opportunity to visit Vanilla Café with friends and family. WOW!! Absolutely amazing atmosphere, great food and excellent service! Talk about value for money whilst being able to entertain kids with the great pool area! Definately worth more than one visit!

WE sat in the enclosed stoep as it was a cold morning and had a very good brunch. Service was not so up to speed then, but the food was nice. We had to go and ask for menus and for the bill.

Service was slow. By the time we got the high tea offerings, our tea was cold. Manager was sitting outside smoking and talking on her cellphone at the top of her voice and didn't once ask us if everything was ok. Waiter was friendly.
