Salvation Café within the Stanley44 complex in Johannesburg is a great place offering quality food and drinks. The outside area is particularly nice and cosy. The menu is quite varied, offering good options for breakfast and lunch, particularly the eggs benedict are always a good choice. All in all, the location is a great and fancy place you should definitely visit.

Often Mabena work related meals there. They're always able to manage a large table - however indecisive. The place is charming, the food is great. Is similarly been great for a coffee with a friend, even with very small children. I would even recommend it for a date.

Beautiful courtyard setting, which has indoor and outdoor options. Staff are very good. Food is delicious - breakfasts particularly good and the juices!

Sit in the filigree shade cast by the surrounding trees, linger over a glass of wine or a beer. It's really lovely here. Bring the children. Come for breakfast or lunch.
I've eaten here many times. To be honest, I find the food quite ordinary although it sounds fab on the menu.
Came during the week with a friend. We both had the 'special' no-bun veggie burgers with halloumi, avo and salad. The burgers were advertised as made from chickpeas but they were weird, tasting only of curried butternut. The rest was fresh, the halloumi was delicious, the cappuccinos were good as was the service.
Disappointingly, place was really empty for a Wednesday lunchtime. Not only the restaurant but everywhere. Yes - finding parking is generally a pain although a friendly car guard assured us we could block a gateway - so we did. But there's a whole parking garage one street to the north which leads you out directly across from the entrance. Weekends are busy.

It was quiet when I went with my wife so that meant we got a seat. This is the quintessential cafe in ambience and food. A place to while away the hours having a good social with friends. This 44 Stanley location is a collection of cafes and quirky cottage industry shops. Warm atmosphere and filled with good looking intelligent people. LIKE ME. Highly recommended jaunt albeit a bit off the beaten track if you are visiting the usual south african malls that are all the same. Would I go out of my way to meet for coffee etc at this place? YES
