Description: Four & Twenty Café & Pantry is located in the charming Chelsea Village area, bringing a slice of Parisian pie to the neighbourhood. Expect to find a happy bustle and enthusiasm from our team and Tracy-Leigh. Our bustling café offers all-day breakfasts, hearty lunches, whimsical pastries, and a pantry stocked with sweet and savoury delights. We believe in using only fresh, seasonal produce sourced locally and take pride in every dish we create.

We booked a table for my mother- in-law's birthday on the 31st and arranged for a few special treats directly with Tracy-Leigh, chef and owner. It's great when a plan comes together!

A wonderful little restaurant in Chelsea Village, Wynberg, with charming decor, great service and fantastic food! The Green eggs and ham is a must! Even the coffee biscuits are something special! Take a stroll through Maynard Park when you are done.

A true village delight!

I went to Four & Twenty for breakfast with a friend on Sunday and had high expectations.

The decor and aesthetic are beautiful. It has a quaint antique vibe. The baked goods and coffee smell amazing when you walk in and it just looks lovely.

I ordered the Green Eggs and Ham which is basically an Eggs’ Benedict but the hollandaise sauce had basil pesto in it.

The food was good but the presentation was awful and the portions are extremely small for the price.

I think that this is a nice place for an afternoon tea or something cute but I wouldn’t return for a meal.

Dear CheronZA

Although I am thrilled to hear that you loved our decor, aesthetic, vibe, general ambience, I am saddened by the fact that you were not totally satisfied for your meal when you visited us on Sunday.

I had a look at the photos that you posted along with this review and I 100% agree that the preservation of your food was not up to scratch nor was it finished off and garnished as it should have been. My chefs are meant to finish off the plate with gorgeous brightly coloured micro herbs which add a pop of colour as well as little flavour burst of fresh herbs - this may sound like a very small element to have left off, however presentation is everything and we all know that a customer 'eats with their eyes' first before enjoying the flavour of the food.

I am so sorry we missed the mark on this one, there is never a good enough excuse, nor do I wish to try to make one. Clearly we were slack when it came to finishing off your plate of food and this in no way shows a true reflection on the quality of food Four & Twenty is known for serving to their guests.

Please accept my deepest apologies for this and I truly hope you will afford me the opportunity to remedy your view of us.

Please be in touch should you wish to return and we will do our best to make it up to you.

Warmest Regards
Tracy-Leigh Gaag

We started with the most wonderful and unusual cocktails before diving straight into our main courses - all of which were delicious. Portion sizes are very generous - perfect if you're starving! Loved the ambience and friendliness of the staff. The cakes looked amazing, sadly we didn't have room...

Dear Martina

Thank you so much for review! I am thrilled to gave our cocktails a try! They really are our favourite and newest addition to our boozy offerings here at Four and Twenty! I am equally thrilled that you enjoy your all your lunch meals! Excellent to hear you found our portion sizes generous - as they should be! I will pass your compliments to my staff, they really are all gems! You'll have to return for an afternoon tea and cake visit! You missed out! We're not going any where so we look forward to seeing you again, hopefully soon!

Warmest Regards

Had one of the Eggs Benedict for my lunch with fresh orange juice, and cappuccino... as I needed something between me and starvation.

Meal was pleasant (although my ciabatta toast didn’t look like ciabatta - it was still ok). Bought several Chewy chocolate biscuits ...while they tasted very nice and had gooey choc inside they were more crumbly than chewy or crunchy. (If you love choc- these are for you). The coffee was pleasant too.

Staff were very prompt, friendly and professional at all times despite being quite busy.
Great place to have a nibble coffee or a meal and it’s right opposite Maynard park. (pic doesn’t do the decor justice)
Will definitely go back!
