Great food and service in a nice ambiance. Waiting staff was attentive but not pushy and the food was delicious. I had the burger and my wife had a salad. Best onion rings I’ve had. Also bought a bag of their granola (almond, cashew and...coconut) and it is amazing. Highly recommend it.More

Great food, excellent service and very reasonable price (at least coming from US). Very tranquil place in the middle of a huge city.

Management were visible and engaged. After my initial concern around my meal was addressed I was able to settle into the café ambiance and enjoy what was (2nd attempt) arguably really good quality food. What I was left with was not a feeling I’d been...unhappy at first but rather as a guest welcome and wanting to return. I’m the first to shy away from sending a meal back but having done so reluctantly I admit it was well worth asking for what I was led to believe Salvation Cafe could deliver; and they did so exceptionally.More

Really chilled spot with a nice relaxed vibe in a courtyard area of 44 Stanley. Great to have trees and plants around. Menu was good and included some vegan options (let’s hope for more of these options soon). Coffees were good too. Service was calm...and friendly. The whole 44 Stanley area is great. Lots of small shops to explore too. Worth a visit.More

Booked for my birthday and was terribly disappointed. Poor service, repeatedly asked for cutlery, menus and service throughout the meal. Was hassled constantly to order food and then pay the bill...felt very unwelcome and as if we were inconveniencing the restaurant by being there. Food...was good but average and overpriced for what you get.More

Positioned in a villa like setting, feels like you out of the city. Love the village like vibe. Service is good and the vegetarian bunless burger was the best.

This spot in the industrial but leafy courtyard is so good. A wonderful change from the usual joburg restaurants that are in shopping malls with a view of parked cars. The food and coffee is delicious and the service is good.

My friends order pork belly and chiken noodles...you can think..normal but it...is not. It is really good, well presented and tasty. You must try and enjoy the place. Worth the wait..More
