Absolutely delicious warm Apple Crumble and Cream and very good coffee. I drink my coffee black with no sugar so no place for bad coffee to hide. The service is always excellent and friendly. Apart from the amazing Apple Crumble I took home a large...chicken pie (for 4) for dinner. It was AMAZING. It was the best chicken pie I have ever eaten and the pasty was sublime. They are consistent in taking your temp and sanitising on arrival - I love this place and feel safe there.More

Fantastic service from Luckyman and Haley! I mentioned that we were celebrating our colleagues birthdays when I booked. The restaurant arranged a birthday banner and cupcakes without me asking for them, what a wonderful, thoughtful gesture! We will most certainly be back to enjoy this...cafe's fantastic food and service!!More

Small gem with view of Table Mountain. Inviting interior design. Friendly staff and atmosphere. Great coffee and breakfast. Also tried a very delicious pasta dish the other day. I am vegetarian and can recommend this place.

On our first day in Cape Town we had lunch at Liquorice & Lime. Since we wanted to have something light to eat after the long flight, we hit the nail on the head with this coffee house. All products are freshly prepared and extremely...tasty. Highly recommended is the Multi-Grain & Rocket Salad or the Humus Sandwich. The freshly pressed juices are also excellent. Very recommendable!!!!More

Best breakfast in the world (according to my two fussy children). They want to swap me out for the chef. Honestly I’m a bit hurt ... but I agree that it’s delicious. Something yummy for everyone.
