Food is good. Ambience is nice Service is REALLY shocking, we waited a long time for our food, the waiter disappeared we never saw him again. We had to call another waiter who rushed past, for a Cappuccino. eventually we signaled for the bill. Then...he still asks if we wanted a Cappuccino!?? Really...... Won't be going there again Bad Service ruins everything 😒 Cake & Cappuccino @ home.....More

We had a spare day in Johannesburg so we visited the mall. Ended up having lunch here with family. We ordered the wraps, I went for the Mexican Fajita wrap. All the wraps were exceptional!! Amazing flavor! If I compare to wraps we get in...the US, these were probably double in size, similar to large burritos. Just bursting with flavors!! We were all full after the meal, but just had to try one of their deserts. That was exceptional as well! Left totally stuffed, but happy! Wish we could visit here again!More

I have never had an issue with Walnut Grove and always loved their cakes especially the rainbow cake which was always a family favourite and bought for many family gatherings and birthdays. This time I decided to try the strawberry and pistachio roulade cake. The...order was placed and paid for online a week before the collection date , and was excited to tryout this for some time now , the thing is we were waiting for special occasion to buy a full cake to share with the family. And when ever I go there never have it per slice available so have never tried. This was the perfect opportunity a birthday celebration! However , after ordering it a a week before the event when I go to collect the staff advise its not available! as they booked it down for the following day in error. Understandly these things do happen , but to get it wrong for a client on a special occasion.? and is in the business of putting smiles on people faces? I had to have a cake as I was allocated the responsibility to collect and bring straight to the venue in Pretoria. The experience was terrible as the staff tried to engage with the manager/owner who confirmed the order a week ago on email. I was offered a delivery of the cake to the venue as they needed time to make and said it will be ready later that day, but I needed to collect and leave straight away. The staff tried as best to get me a cake , I landed up taking the rainbow cake and rushing to get it tk the venue. Really disappointed customer! 😞More

Really lovely visit. Restaurant looks great. Service was excellent and all orders very tasty. This included fried halloumi, fashion sandwiches, calamari, salmon pasta with zucchini and avo 3 ways. Delicious cakes. Cheese cake bit disappointing but didn't detract from really enjoyable lunch

Friendly staff with average food. Presentation of food was good and portion size is on the big side. But taste was average. I ordered the salmon pasta (gnocchi) and while the gnocchi was well made, I couldn’t taste or see any salmon, only a bowl...of red-orange sauce and gnocchi.More

The Walnut Grove is our most favourite place to go for coffee n cake. We travel all the way from the East to come to you. Yesterday we visited the Walnut Grove for the first time this year. As usual service was first class and...the coffee n cake experience never fails us. This visit was extraordinary, unfortunately we left a very expensive item behind by mistake. We only found out when arriving home. I immediately phoned the Walnut Grove and Jabu answered my call and said, that the item had been found and placed in lost and found. I said I could only come today. Jabu said I must ask for Andrew the manager, which I did, and, there it was, safe n sound. I'm so proud that I can share this story, as it elevates my value in this amazing establishment, that honesty and trust are embedded in their ethos. Thank You Walnut Grove, you are tops!More

So many really nice vegan options. Nice vibe. Old charm. Super service and a manager who is prepared to go out of his way to make sure meals are vegan. Coconut, almond and soya milk options.

Some colleagues and I frequent Walnut quite a bit as it is easily accessible from work. The new menu options that were recently presented are a strong step up from their previous offerings. The food is tasty, reasonably priced, and always leaves me feeling full...and happy when I am done eating here. We will continue to come so long as the service is good and the food is done well.More

Delicious breakfast in this well known location. I had the mini fry-up which at just R55 was great value for money. Two well cooked to order eggs, a slice of cooked tomato, crispy bacon and some tasty mushrooms and toast. My wife ordered a scone...and it was devoured. Quite a large scone but good. Our lattes were served with a micro red velvet taster! I must also mention that our waitress Percy was quick and efficient. Highly recommended.More

What started off as a relaxed breakfast, ended in a heated confrontation with the the manager Andrew. The food arrived cold and when hot food was requested Andrews aggressive and irritated response towards my wife was so shocking that I told him that he needn’t...worry about replacing the meal as I would rather go somewhere else. This resulted in Andrew becoming increasingly aggressive to the point where he was shouting so loud that passing shoppers were stopping to stare!! Well done Andrew, I’m sure those who saw you in action will definitely find somewhere else to dine!! To the owners: View your camera footage and you’ll witness first hand Andrews highly aggressive facial and body language towards us as patrons!!More
