If ever you need to get to a meeting in the middle of Pretoria, get in early and take a break at Cafe Riche. The interior aptly reflects the historical building and the service is tops.

This is perhaps the last one of its kind in Pretoria. The wooden counter ,the tiled floors just soak up the History on Church Square!

We stopped here quickly for breakfast while taking a quick look around Pretoria. The menu has many options including eggs many ways and pastries. This is a cute cafe near the center of town. The staff is friendly and the food is good.

On the fringe of Church Square, this historical café is worth a visit. It is well maintained and contains some interesting old photographs. Friendly staff.
