We had a cozy breakfast at Licorice & Lice on a rainy morning. The service was excellent, the breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented, and the views of Table Mountain were wonderful.

This nice place is perfect for a good start in the day. The apple juice with mint and the English Muffin with Avocado, Bacon and Poached Eggs were amazing!! We can highly recommend this café.

We returned to this soulful restaurant for coffees after our early morning hike. The service was prompt and attentive and the coffees were perfectly executed. Cannot wait to return to this local gem when I visit Cape Town next. Ideal for coffee lovers.

Not much to say about this place except GO THERE!!!!!! The view is to die for when it’s clear and the food and service are great. Best for breakfast but lunch would be good too. They are not open in the evenings
