Visited the cafe after our day out at the Aquarium. The food was good. We ordered kids Pizza Margherita, mushroom linguine pasta, soup of the day and fish and chips. The pasta was good. The soup of the day came with grilled cheese. The chips...on the other hand were quite limp. Service was a bit slow.More

Horrible service. In an area so densely packed with restaurants the one things that sets a place apart is their customer service. Visited Vagabond (right next to Bootleggers) the day before and had the best waiter - nothing was too much trouble. At Bootleggers I...had to get up and ask for every little thing while the waiters stood chatting with each other. Won’t be returning.More

It's a good coffee roastery located in different areas in CT (chain), but there are of course better cafes around in this area. Coffee and breakfast is good though (options of Granola with fresh fruit etc.), but it's nicer to take out as the athmosphere...is a bit dark and cold.More

Great spit for a morning coffee. We had a delicious strong flat white. Made with love from the staff. They had an amazing selection of cakes and condiments for sale as well.

Really great location and atmosphere. Good food and coffee and friendly staff. Really bad service bug I suspect its a system issue and that it may get sorted out at some stage because management seems committed and competent. Today was a bad experience though which...is a pity.More

A little gem in Campsbay. Within walking distance from our accommodation. Serves good coffee and light meals. Just concerned that there is not enough done to prevent the spreading of the Corona virus. I walked in today- no sanitiser available and table not cleaned even...though the place was almost empty.More

Pricey burger, but it had processed cheese and raw patties. Too much butter or something? Was nauseas after having a few bites. Pizza was slightly better. Would not recommend it. Expected much better.
