A lovely atmosphere - real alfresco dining in a quirky eccentric setting. Staff is genuine and engaging, they really do their best to help and deliver to your needs. A very interesting and health conscious menu that is not your run of the mill health...shop offering - real thought has been put into the menu based on client needs and local produce.More

This is our ‘go to’ breakfast spot at least once a week. Food is very good, service attentive and a menu for everyone! Management is delightful! Try the pear and almond cheesecake! A real treat.

We have eaten often at La Verdure and keep returning. Definitely our go to restaurant for breakfast (no matter the time) or lunch. To say we have never had either bad meal or service sounds unreal but that has certainly been our experience. The staff...remains essentially the same over the years we have been going which is also great. Don’t miss out on a treat for yourselves.More

My daughter and I came for breakfast and found a cosy spot which was not noisy despite the relatively busy time. The menu is balanced and suits most tastes especially those with a leaning towards health/organic foods. Service was excellent and the owner made us...feel so welcome and relaxed. Eggs were done to perfection and the helping of scrambled eggs was exceedingly generous. Nice place for a cozy chat! There is also plenty of parking and one can eat outside if desired. Prices are very reasonable.More

Terrible experience. Client smoking in a non smoking area whilst we are eating our breakfast. The attitude from Marion the owner was could not care less. The waiter Elton Smiths attitude was extremely rude and disrespectful . Told us the guy smoking is a regular,...we are not and therefore he is not concerned if we do not return. We will never return and will advise friends of our terrible experience.More

Really enjoy having many options when ‘building’ my breakfast. Love their breads, especially the sourdough. Cappuccino’s are not the best one can get in Kloof. Can be a bit noisy. Service is a problem in that on each of 3 occasions I have been there,...the meal is served and then nobody comes to check if all is in order or if anyone wants another drink or a second coffee. On our last visit, a couple of the meals were not sufficiently warm. Small mistakes which could be easily rectified. I would visit there again.More

My wife and I popped in for an early lunch on the way back to home in Durban. The service was outstanding and the food even better. I had the half chicken salad and my wife had the chicken and mayo open sandwich on sourdough....The ingredients were super fresh and well presented. The half salad was, to me, a full meal and I'm a big guy. The atmosphere is warm and friendly and a pleasure to experience. My wife's open sandwich was awesome, according to her, The whole experience was great and the staff were awesome! We will definitely be back!More
