Review MV Cafe in Northcliff at the Mountain View shopping centre. We enjoyed delicious pancakes filled with salmon, cottage cheese, and avo and a sweet one filled with Nutella, coconut, and bananas with a filtered coffee. Comfortable seating and friendly staff. Spaced seating with views....Parking in the centre. Served by our friendly waitress Patience.More

The owner tells my wife and I that he does not want "people like us" at the restaurant - unacceptable prejudice in this day and age and extremely aggressive towards women.

We experienced poor service at MV Cafe and sent an email in this regard. No response was received. We called back and spoke to the manager who was there at the time. He told us that our complaint was 'kak' (translation 'sh*&') and asked us...why we were being so 'pissy'. He spoke over us so we weren't able to respond. The aggression he displayed towards two women is absolutely unacceptable. We later learnt that he is allegedly the owner of MV Cafe. The waiters have always been an absolute pleasure, but we will no longer support an establishment run by a man who believes it is ok to display such aggression towards others, especially women and the LGBTQI community.More

We have enjoyed many breakfasts, lunches and a few dinners at this upstairs and perhaps a little difficult to spot first time around restaurant. An attractive menu with a wide variety of tasty dishes is matched with professional service and a surprisingly pleasing outlook over...the Northcliff Hill. We have never been disappointed with MV which has become a popular eatery for the locals. Keep it up MV.More

Found ourselves in the area. Opened TA for 'Nearby'. #5 in Randburg. Very impressed. Extensive menu, courteous service, pleasantly casual, first floor, balcony table with the mountain view, generous portions of good homemade food. Arabic lamb mince on aubergine platter mmm. And great value too.

MV Cafe is our casual dining venue of choice. It's near our home and the overall experience is excellent! The restaurant owner and his staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. And the food is terrific, both in terms of quality...and also value for moneyMore

MV Cafe was recommended to me by my Pastor. What a great breakfast we had! The food was excellent, being prepared exactly as ordered. The staff were most efficient and friendly. I will most certainly be returning for an evening meal

We often go to MV Cafe for business breakfasts, and there food is always outstanding. Great coffee and great friendly staff. Atmosphere is also nice, and you don't feel like you are in a parking lot restaurant.

From the view, setting, food and service, this is a gem. Don't find excellence like this everyday. You can see management is passionate about delivering a memorable client experience.
