We stopped here for a quick hot chocolate and slice of cake after having taken my fiance on a tour of my old university. I was pleasantly surprised! The hot chocolate was good and the cakes were AMAZING! I would highly recommend the Carrot cake!

Revelations is my favourite restaurant in Grahamstown when it comes to breakfasts. The service is generally quick (and after one or more returns they are likely to remember your favourite menu item), the coffee is good, but those softly scrambled eggs are simply outstanding.More
