Walk down this area with several shops and after your legs ache, time to sit down and relax. The only coffee shop around. Has some good patisserie, too.

I stopped by in the morning after roaming around and I had some coffee with carrot cake. The carrot cake was really good. The ambiance was nice if it wasn't too crowded.

Note, the place is renamed to Dean’s cafe - we were a little confused at the beginning. Went there for lunch and had three different dishes (burger, sandwich and salad), all very delicious, but especially the quinoa salad was outstanding! Good service and attentive host.

Felt that the food was overpriced. Also felt pressured as a number of the locals would hang around and try to push their products on us. Felt that cafe owners need to maintain some customer integrity by keeping pushers away.More

Stopped in for coffee and brekky while doing some shopping. Excellent capucino that put some hair on my chest, and the smoked salmon wrap was also good. Service was excellent, totally recommend a visit if you are in the area.

A funky little restaurant, filled with great vibes, friendly people, chilled music, delicious food and ice cold drinks, this place has so many fun things happening all the time, we even have a Magic Far Away tree where the kids can sit under and enjoy their meal, while looking for all the hidden creatures. The Africa Cafe looks forward to your visit.
