We went to lunch at Paputzis on Wednesday last week, having been there a few times before. We were totally taken aback at the poor quality of food we were served and the attitude of management. I ordered from the specials board a "Pulled Pork Wrap" which was described as succulent pork in a rich sauce. Sounded delicious. What arrived... More

We had a very relaxing luncheon, sitting in the garden. Even though the restaurant was crowded, we didn't feel the rush of other people. Our favorites were the toasted Mediterranean sandwich, the pita sandwich and the toasted feta salad. The homemade healthy bread was fabulous. The only negative was a long wait for food to be delivered.

A friendly place to have a coffee and light meal in a lovely garden setting . A favourite place of ours as it is pet friendly , and our pups are welcomed with a pork sausage and bowl of water! The food is freshly prepared and the staff very pleasant.

Easy to see why Paputzi's has been voted one of the best coffee shops in South Africa. The coffee is excellent (Tribeca beans always are) and the Capputzi is a real chilly morning winner. Perfect for a lovely family breakfast.

Not a gourmet experience, but a perfectly serviceable coffee shop in Linden. It has a lovely garden, which is probably the best attraction to eating here.

This is a lovely place if you would like to get some rest and just be with yourself it with your friends. This is the time were you can stop time for a while and just relax in the beautiful garden and with the lovely music at the background. Food is also really good and the staff is very friendly....

Paputzis is a great place to take children and families as there is a play place in full view of the seated parents. There are trees to climb too... There is parking within the venue gates and a small shop with local wares- such as dried cape fruits and delicious koeksusters- for sale. The menu is extensive and varied with... More

Been going to Paputzis for years and it never disappoints. Good value excellent service delicious food and a very enticing gift shop art gallery. In summer the outside garden is perfect and in winter the heaters and extra knee blankets makes for a very cosy visit.

Great coffee shop with a great vibe, situated in a house and garden. Food is also great. They also have a jungle gym for the children. Great place for all ages.

We popped in after landing in Joburg from Nairobi and very hungry. It is getting increasingly difficult to find regular restaurant Catering delicious meals for vegetarians: had to settle for pumpkin soup and a salad with feta cheese. Nothing out of the ordinary. If you like to eat outdoor beware of the chickens !
