A rear gem. Really enjoyed a great breakfast with my wife. Relaxed vibe with street musicians performing. Excellent service and exceptional menu. Looove the smoothies. And homemade bread WOW. Just a "lekker" place to be. I ended up buying a painting. The owners of the...restaurant display lots of art work and craft of local artists. Well done. Great food, great price. LOVE ITMore

My boyfriend found City Perk almost by accident, just Googling “breakfast.” We’re so glad he did! From the moment we entered, we could tell it was special. We were greeted and seated by Innocent, who was also our server. He was so helpful and patient,...answering our many questions with kindness and a smile that lit up the room. The coffee was fantastic: highly recommend the hot latte. The food was divine! I had Norwegian smoked salmon Benedict, and my guy had On the Run (eggs, rye toast and bacon.) We also shared a croissant. The food was fresh, beautifully prepared and presented, and so, so good!! We met Jackie: she and her husband Alexi own the restaurant. They feature art from all sorts of artists on their walls, rotating it out every few months. The art is as varied and beautiful as the food! She was a delight, and it was obvious she’s passionate about both great food and beautiful and inspiring art. We’re getting ready to head back in just a bit for breakfast. Two days in JoBerg, two wonderful experiences at City Perk: we couldn’t be happier about that! This place is absolutely a must-do while you’re here. Love it. ❤️More

Nice place to get something to eat and drink in the centre of Johannesburg. The helpful owners will advise you which directions you can explore around the cafe, and it’s next to a stop of the hop on hop off city tour bus.

We are visiting Johannesburg and stopped for coffee at City Perk Cafe. What a delightful experience! The lattes we had were delicious. The snacks and food selection was great and also, delicious. It is a family owned business and we met Jacquie, who owns it...with her husband, Alexi. You can get coffee and food from an outside counter or sit in their lovely cafe filled with beautiful artwork from local artists. It touched my heart that Jacqui and Alexi invited several shop owners, whose businesses had been hurt during Covid, to set up tables outside the cafe to sell their lovely products. Jacqui’s passion for her cafe and for the local community was evident. All in all, stopping at City Perk Cafe turned out to be a joyful and very unexpected experience!More

I buy takeaways on a regular basis. The food is always spot on and super fresh. Nice to find proper hand cut chips, not the frozen rubbish. Wraps, sandwiches and salads are always fresh tasty and certainly not lacking in substance..

Good food choices and friendly staff. Inside and outside seating. Not open on Sundays, perhaps not open on Saturday either?

I loved this restaurant and take-away the last time I visited a year ago & was afraid that they may not have survived the months of lockdown. I was so delighted to see that they had reopened and still serving great food & coffee. The...vibe is really cool , & I received a warm welcome from Lexi & Jacqui the owners who ensured that I got great service. They support local artists & the walls were adorned with colour.! All the covid protocols were observed & I felt safe in the environment. I would recommend this little gem to anyone.More

Doing our city bus, a lunch break came alone. We choose this square because of the live music. And what a nice salat. Thankyou.

Arrived and quickly approached and seated but then it started to go wrong. Firstly I was a given a sticky wet menu - not pleasant. We ordered and all seemed fine - happy to accommodate a minor change. Then we waited and waited...... Staff were...running around but not much was happening. Eventually food came and I didn't receive what I had ordered but by this stage time constraints meant I just went ahead. Overall food was nice enough but not special. When it came to the bill they had added 10% service and the waiter asked how much I wanted put on card insinuating I should tip again.More
