Nestled in one of the busier streets of Cape Town on the Red Bus Tour route is Brownies and Downies. A fairly quiet coffee shop with friendly service, delicious brownies and quality Truth coffee. Definetely worth a visit if you're in the area. A unique experience with benefits streching beyond dining.

My mate took me to this beautiful spot in Long str. Him being vegan, and myself open to try anything. we ordered the Butternut & Blue Cheese Risotto. OMG!! The service was good. Vibe was great and the food was exquisite.
Def a spot to go to when in town.

We have just come back from a delightful breakfast at Brownies and Downies, despite being there later than the breakfast cut-off time of 11.00am. The presentation of the coffee is lovely and the accompanying brownie sample delicious! The staff are very friendly and helpful and their gluten-free bread is excellent. They also have gluten-free muffins available - and obviously gluten-free brownies.
We all enjoyed our meals and would definitely go back except as Capetonians, we are reluctant to venture into the city centre!! Will go back on a Saturday though as I see they are open one Saturday a month - very excited about that!
