If ever you need to get to a meeting in the middle of Pretoria, get in early and take a break at Cafe Riche. The interior aptly reflects the historical building and the service is tops.

This is perhaps the last one of its kind in Pretoria. The wooden counter ,the tiled floors just soak up the History on Church Square!

A listed building on Church Square, the only restaurant open directly on Church Square. Very popular with lawyers. Good for coffees, light meals

We stopped here quickly for breakfast while taking a quick look around Pretoria. The menu has many options including eggs many ways and pastries. This is a cute cafe near the center of town. The staff is friendly and the food is good.

On the fringe of Church Square, this historical café is worth a visit. It is well maintained and contains some interesting old photographs. Friendly staff.

This restaurant was recommended to us, but when we got there it had few customers and passive service. The food was good and it was nice to sit and relax after a morning of touring.

I love places like this. Great institutions (the oldest restaurant and bar in Pretoria I am told), a little faded perhaps, but still serving good, tasty food (in this case, Mitteleuropa, bockwurst on rye bread and the like) in a charming and cosy atmosphere. Long...More

The place is old, which might be great. But my food wasn't much better either! I will definitely not go back.

Beautiful - the oldest, friendliest coffee shop in Pretoria. Perfect for a coffee or cold beer before or after a visit to Church Square. And right next door to the Tourist Information Centre.
