SERVICE IS POOR! NO SUPERVISION! NO-ONE IN CHARGE. BEEN THERE A FEW TIMES AND IT'S GETTING WORSE.

We make special trips to eat here. We visit Pretoria from Durban and always make time to eat at the Lucky Bread Company. Their salads are interesting and tasty. They serve delicious chickpea dishes. The service is great. The juices and coffee are great. Highly...recommend this place.More

This is Pretoria's coffee haven. Their best coffee, the Lucky No 6 Blend, is exceptionally good and nuanced in flavour. Many patrons come from far and wide to visit this cafe to savour a cuppa. Another great feat of this small gem, is the freshly...baked breads, of which there are quite a large variety and also the reason for their fame. This cafe is always packed and your first visit won't be your last - guaranteed!More

The Coffee/Snackbar is right in the middle of the mall. The coffee is like in Italy, cheap in price and veer y delicious! They use their own beans from different countries of Africa. Nice blend.

I always go to Lucky Bread for healthy and homemade sandwiches that do not make me feel like ate junk. I also love the pastries as they remind me of when I was a little girl. They make a somewhat decent pain au chocolat and...croissant (However the takeaways I have taken I have found burnt goodies at the bottom and super hard - so they might not be fresh). Secondly, they do make things in order, so grab a menu if you want.More

After a quick reccie of Mall of Africa my appetite for a healthy meal was stirred. Tired of snacking on the usual suspects (wraps, burgers, pasta and chicken), I ventured onwards and upwards. Lucky Bread literally greeted me at the top of the stairs with...urban house beats, PROPER coffee and gourmet sandwiches. One Ethiopean latte and an aptly named Man sandwich later I was satiated. The only minus of this vibey establishment- they can only be found at Mall of Africa in a province very far from home.More

I'm not fond of shopping malls but this little coffee shop is worth the quick stop. I went there with my family late Sunday afternoon for a waffel and coffee and we truly enjoyed ourselves. We share the milk tart waffel and a classic waffel...and it was delicious! We found the staff to be helpfull and friendly. I have not yet orderd another dish off their menu but for what we wanted everything was wonderfull.More

Lucky Bread Company is in Brooklyn Mall and next to the escalator going up to the movies. It is a very open cafe setup with very good coffee. They have a open counter with various light meals available in the display area. Good pastries and...needles to say a variety of options on the bread meals with interesting toppings/fillings. Sour dough for sure the best. The milkshakes are served in the traditional tall stainless steel cup with a smaller glass on the side. Stunning flavors. Friendly waiters. Great place to meet someone for a quick meal/breakfast or lunch, or just coffee or even a long session of catching up with a good friend.More

Had a bagel with filling and although it looks like a very small meal it was very nice and just enough. Service good for a peak December period.
