We ate here by chance our first morning and then returned four times during our six day stay in Cape Town. Yes it gets busy and sometimes you have to wait, but the staff are friendly and as long as you aren't in a rush...More

Locally, this has to be the best coffee in town. I had the huevos rancheros, croissant, and falafel burger. All were fantastic. The fish is good but a bit overpriced compared to the falafel burger. In any event, this place is recommended.

I ate breakfast here a couple times as the food is good. The service is somewhat slow, and double check your order. When traveling with vegetarians, it is always nice to find a place that has a variety of foods for them.

This quaint little restaurant was busy with the Sunday brunch crowd. The supply doesn't meet the demand and people were being turned away by the manager. We actually waited 25 mins for a table.i don't have to do this venue again.

Scrumptious breakfast with good coffee & juice. Small friendly little cafe and conveniently situated close to self catering apartments
