We stumbled on this place on our first day and we ate here nearly every time after that! Fabulous food, cooked to order at a great price. Interesting ingredients and all really delicious. Wonderful coffee as well. Staff and service exceptional! Highly recommended.

Stopped for a quick lunch and wow! Fresh and so flavoursome. Lovely staff and a great choice of healthy but tasty options plus superb cakes. Couldn’t manage the cake so we went back the next day. Highly recommended.

Best Mediterranean Kitchen outside of the Mediterranean. Food is fresh and flavors perfectly balanced and made from old school recipes. A place the owner can be very proud of.

Found cooked by chance and had a great experience there on their outside patio. Our waitress Trish described the special Kinklip in such a mouthwatering way that she not only convinced the non fish eater, but i am now also on the lookout for more...of it. The service was attentive and friendly and the food just stunning. thanks!More

Amazing location in the heart of the Watershed where you can enjoy scrumptious food and fabulous service whilst watching people pass through the main route through the Watershed. Seems to be popular with both locals and tourists. We were in Capetown for 5 days and...had a breakfast, lunch and many coffee and cakes in this wonderful place. I love it. Too many good things on the menu to recommend just one!!!More

Hi Davina. Thanks for taking the time to review us - much appreciated. We love being in The Watershed because the hustle and bustle and VIBE is really great! Happy to hear that you got to try an array of items off of our menu!

This is a super place with a really great selection of delicious food. We stayed in Cape Town for two weeks and probably visited about 7 times. It's great for a late breakfast, lunch or coffee any time of day. Linah and Trish looked after...us several times and were especially kind to our toddler. It's very convenient for the waterfront, aquarium, shops and other attractions. Every time we went there we saw a range of people really enjoying themselves and enjoying delicious food and drink.More
