Waited 30 minutes for a cup of yogurt and muesli. No other customers here. Asked the staff for 15 minutes and they kept saying coming now. Well I'll never be returning

We were just looking for a quick snack and this was ideal and we enjoyed what we ordered. Nice food, good service and value.

I do suppose that some people enjoy these busy coffee spots. For me it is simply too noisy along with a noisy location. I do not enjoy this particular store.

If it is a quick cup of coffee that you are wanting, this is the place to go. The staff are very noisy but friendly and the shop has a certain vibe. I find the cappucino a little to frothy and a bit stingy with the coffee. Once you have got past the foam , there is very little coffee... More

Super expensive. Grumpy waitrons. Rather go across the way next to Exclusive Books and get a coffee there whilst sitting on the comfy leather couches.

I have been following this small group of coffee shops from the first one they opened to the small empire that excists today. Just goes to prove that if you provide great coffee and food with a enthusiastic smile and a twist of Latino magic then you have a winner. Well worth a visit,my favourite one is on Kloof street.

With a small group of friends , we paused in our busy day for a quick cup of coffee and enjoyed our chat & chew in Claremont. Service was friendly, fairly quick...but the environment was too noisy, for us to hear ourselves talk. Not recommended, for a talkative coffee and catch-up !

Regular visitor, consistently good coffee but the place is usually messy - manager should whip around every half hour to see if wrappers are picked up, sugar and spoon station topped up and a general once over???

I'm writing about the Vida outside Cavendish next to Savas hair. I have supported this Vida for 4 years as it sits on my doorstep and never have I been treated more like an alien. I wanted to order my ideal hangover cure: ham and mozzarella croissant with extra egg (requirement). Mmm! But, there was no ham. Boo. So I... More
