Very cool spot to catch up with friends over a lazy weekend brunch - a good range of well priced breakfast options. Getting a free flat white/cappuccino with your breakfast order is a boon.

Highly recommended. Good variety. Brilliant beer and wine selection. The staff are friendly, loads of parking at wembley, which is great! One of my favorites in Cape Town at the moment. We go often, at least once a week.
