The food, coffee and location is great but the service is below par and lacking. Don't think they have been trained properly. Nobody in this shop actually looks like they want to be there. The waiters don't follow up on anything . They dont smile....Dishes are not taken from the tables. They spoil the atmosphere.More

A very reasonably priced coffee bar which offers meals and delicious desserts. Good for a quick bite.

Very nice. Opened at the new The Berg Shopping Centre Super Spar, Gordon Road Bergbron. Already a Neighbourhood favourite. Simple menu, with good quality food and good pricing. Convenient, just a small intimate venue. Just a fair word of warning. Already gets very busy.

Best breakfast in town! . Beautiful little restaurant right under your nose. Great menu! Great service -perfect for a Saturday /Sunday breakaway. . Perfect for a working lunch with the ability to "plug" in and do what you need to do with ease. Great food!

Friendly service and a decent location, I should have tried the baked goods as the shop is an extension of the local Spar. The omelette was disappointing, rather flat and stodgy.

I have visited a few times. Usually the experience has been good overall. The food and coffee are good. The level of service varies quite a bit but usually has been good. All in all, a nice place to enjoy a breakfast and coffee

I have been to the Bean Tree many times - usually for breakfast or a quick lunch and the menu is good, the food fresh and I have never been disappointed. However, a friend (visiting from Australia) told me that I had to have tea...and cake with her there, as they have the best carrot cake she has ever had! And she was right. Oh my cake! It's moist, beautifully textured, full of nuts and absolutely wonderful. Next time I have a celebration, I am going to order an entire cake from them! Super special and highly recommended.More

One of the best quality and best value breakfasts I've had in a long time, while waiting for the dentist 😊 Service friendly and efficient. Will be back with my family 👍

Lovely little spot right in a shopping center where you can get a delicious coffee, awesome party or a full meal. Service is friendly and prompt, food very tasty and prices reasonable. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is that the blender, which...is used frequently, made a horrible racket while we were dining. Otherwise this is a delightful little spot.More

We stopped to order take aways and were offered coffees while we waited at Bean Tree Cafe inside the Spar near the Virgin Active opposite Eagle Canyon in Randpark Ridge. The staff were friendly and efficient. The red cappuccino was huge, excellent value for money,...hot and delicious plus served with free cookies ;) The take aways were generous portion sizes and the food and prices surprisingly good. I highly recommend this coffee shop.More

A convenient coffee shop which is a good choice for a daytime snack or meal. I have been there a few times recently and the menu does seem limited after going more than twice. I can recommend the carrot cake and the croissants, would like...a bit more variety in the sandwiches and breakfasts. Hands on manager and very pleasant waitronsMore

We were looking for a place to eat after doing VBS. The manager was standing outside and asked us to look at his menu. We thought it was just coffee, but he was a complete cafe. Great food. Very fresh, and they were very friendly....We went back two more times. I was on a mission trip and have no idea the address, we were not driving. A friend dropped us off there. But, I do know it was close to the Brixton area. Not far from the University either.More
