An institution! Grab a fabulous chiabatta and choose your deli fillings for a beautiful sandwich. Have a cup of the best coffee in Cape Town, then browse and buy fabulous ingredients for your own anti-pasti for friends at home. Highly recommended, even if just for a coffee and a browse. Only one warning: Do not buy the coffee pods and expect the same taste as the coffee served...not even close!!

I have been coming here for more than 20 years mostly buying their deli food. I cannot recount the many breakfasts and the always excellent service. The coffee always outstanding, your walk to the deli counter with your favourite roll in hand and the anticipation of filling it with your favourite deli items and customised condiments. Just awesome. Best of all is the incredible consistency of their quality which the owner brothers watch with eagle eyes.
There is a vibe which you won't find in a New York deli, because this is Italian with a heart.Best of all is when you walk out with your parcels of freshly cut hams or salmon and their artisan bread. The feast just continues at home !!

Always busy with locals, this is a great deli for food shopping specialities as well as coffees and pastries in the morning. A must-visit place!

This place on main road in Green Point (opp the Cape Town Stadium) is legend in this city and one of my fave places for takeaway food, homemade style. My faves: hake fish cakes, Italian bolognese, chopped liver, own brand yoghurt & cauli/kale mash & minestrone soup! My least fave is the coffee/flat white. Not quite up to my fussy standards
The service is always excellent- even the owner is around to serve- I love that and am sore that's why the place is consistently good in terms of their offering and experience.
