Came here based on TA reviews and happy to say they are well deserved accolades. The decor is quirky and slick, service is very friendly and professional, and the food was awesome. I had the rosti with poached eggs and extra avocado, hubby had poached eggs with artichoke. Both were excellent. We will definitely be back.

Wonderfully decorated and accommodating venue. We had a 6 year old and a one year old. Our waiter was excellent, She was awesome throughout our stay, in fact all the staff were warm friendly and just excellent. Our coffees, hot chocolate was excellently prepared and thoroughly enjoyed...then there is the breakfast, excellent in terms of presentation, wonderful flavours and portion size and damn delicious. We savoured every moment and wished we had more time. Definitely deserves more visits

It's an almost hidden gem as it opens from 9am and closes early at 4pm.
The food is delicious and the menu is extensive and available all day.
As we visited right on opening time we decided on the breakfast option. We had the rosti with poached eggs and scrambled eggs with the poppy seed bread. Both with sides of bacon.
The food was well presented and tasty.
The coffee was great and the hot chocolate was the best I've tasted in Cape Town.
Our waitress was attentive, friendly and top notch.
Want to go back for lunch to try the veal.

Impeccable service and exquisite tastes. If you are looking to have a treat, this is it. The hollandaise is perfect, and is a symphony with mosbolletjie toast and grilled artichokes.
