Love the food and atmosphere of this place ❤️😊 I really liked the bread “khobouz” that was freshly baked there with herbs on top. It seems to be Mediterranean food with African taste. So friendly staff.

Hi! Thanks so much for your kind words. It is Mediterranean inspired - the Khoubiz are Lebanese flatbreads :) Hope to see you again sometime :)

We stopped to buy drinks, snacks and meals on a number of occassions during our two day lay-over at the V&A waterfront. The snacks, meals and pastries are to die for!! Service was prompt, polite and very efficient. A great place to re-fuel.
