This small, mainly outdoor seating eatery does breakfast well, plus other food all day. Staff generally attentive, though at times service could be a bit on the slow side. A good location as street music adjacent to entertain you whilst you dine. Would recommend.....

This cafe isn’t the best located for views but you’ll see a steady stream of street entertainment which is good fun. Prices average, food good, service great. Would recommend

Best spaghetti Bolognese, cheesecake AND Dom Pedro on the Waterfront, if not in Cape Town- and all in the same meal, watch the world go by- and have a cold beer

We went to this place on NYE for pre-drinks and it was brilliant. The cheesecake was one of the best I’ve tried in ages. Amazing food and service

Ate here twice for lunch. The food is very good and can recommend the cheese and ham sandwich/Panini. They are excellent and great value. Can watch buskers opposite whilst eating. A great way to spend lunch
