Salvationcafe is a hidden gem in the middle of 44 Stanley; an oasis in the urban jungle of Joburg; a sanctuary amidst olive and leopard trees; a must-do for visitors and locals alike; a locals favorite with international allure. Come and enjoy an award-winning breakfast, a signature lunch (one of several) and a homemade dessert like our cheesecake of which customers often say it is "the best I have ever had". We invite you to come and try for yourself and share your experience on Trip Advisor. Buon Appetito!
