Great food, good service but why would someone think it’s ok to smoke next to you while you are having a meal with your young kids. Disgraceful that I was moved to accommodate the smoker.

People are allowed to smoke, although sitting outside. It’s an absolute appetite killer! SO disappointed! We will not support you again!

Seating available in the open under umbrellas which is ideal during the pandemic. Ample parking with excellent breakfast explain why this venue is so popular and I will not hesitate for a moment to visit them again.

I've been coming here for a long time and I'm disappointed what parents can allow there kids to run around in the restaurant. It's not nice to try and have a meal and have a conversation.

This restaurant offers a variety of food, from breakfast, sandwiches to light meals. For a quiet corner, try a table upstairs Food portions are generous - unfortunately the salad is covered with salad dressing You can also buy some baked goods from the bakery to...take homeMore

This coffee shop and bakery could be so much better. Position is right on the busy Beyers Naudé. The owner allows smoking on the sidewalk tables which blows in on the other guests. This is illegal anyway. Owner's attitude is take it or leave it...so I leave it, simple as that.More

Always consistant and one of the best breakfasts in town. Great fast service and bottomless coffee top it all off. Inside, outside, private booth upstairs - what ever you want. Management always on hand and over seeing ever little thing. Always has 3 or 4...newspapers - great bakery and vibey set - up - definately a local gem in the Northcliff area.More

Visited with my wife towards closing time to get some cake, but when my wife walked in she was on the phone and she then walked out to finish her long conversation. In the end, we drove off. The following day we returned and my...wife again went in to get her cake, the manager then greeted her and told her they'd waited for her after closing in order to serve her. That just blew us away and we'd like to commend the staff for that personal touch and attentiveness to customers. Of course, we loved the cake, but that's for another review.More
