Thomas's coffee never disappoints, and the pastries are excellent. The ambience is buzzy but "rustig", always a good mix of regular locals and visitors. If anyone describes the service as slow, its because they are not yet on Valley time. Trust Chrizine that you will...More

I certainly never expected my experience to be as good as it was. Ibrahim was my waiter and was also surprisingly good at service. I took his recommendation for breakfast and didn't regret it. Hot fresh food.

The food was ok. The service is rather slow. The setting is beautiful, especially sitting under the grapevine.

What an awesome surprise. Took a drive to Riebeek Kasteel for the morning. Decided to have some breakfast at Beans about Coffee. Was so blown away by their Cappuccino that I had to have a second one. The egg bacon nest breakfast was really good...More
