We had a book club meeting at Carlton Cafe Delicious and I was blown away by the unique flavour combinations and exquisitely prepared food. Everything I ate was fantastic and I would love to return again and again. If you want to impress someone with elegant simplicity and mind blowing food, take them to Carlton Café Delicious.

Poor service. Good coffee but not worth the wait... I sadly sat here for a looooonnng time before a waiter came around and then had to call again for a refill. Table not even cleared. Other coffee shops in the area better.

Breakfast just didn't work out... Sadly the pork sausage was one of those garlic laden chili types which spoilt the rest of a possible great meal... Coffee of poor standard and the chai tea was terrible.. nobody cared but maybe just a bad day in general..?

BRAVO! Delicious would be an understatement. A very understated eclectic environment, serving top notch food. A very creative and innovative menu which plays with your tastebuds with every mouthful. I have never tasted a ginger beer chilly cocktail before and it was so surprisingly delicious, thanks to the recommendation of the waitress. My pasta sauce was so delicious that i... More

Carlton Cafe was wonderful! There were different innovative choices on the menu and even drinks selection that were unique to the cafe, some were kept from the original menu of the cafe and others were local favourites... all delicious too!

We were at Carlton's Café for breakfast. The menu is quite exclusive and it's more of an expensive place to eat. The food is fresh and of a high quality and it didn't take very long. Our waitress was nice and attentive. For two coffee specialities, a croissant with butter and jam and a chicken burger (it's more of a... More

Carlton cafe & delicious in Menlo Park, Pretoria is a favourite of ours for breakfast and they have a deli/food shop with yummy cookies,biscotti and ready made meals. They have a original twist on all their menu items. Very popular and gets very crowded and loud especially on weekends. Service is always on point and friendly and they welcome familiar... More

Yummy creative drinks and killer brownies aside, we love this place for its marmite tart and other delectable brunch offerings. The herbal garden gives the outside area just that necessary bit of privacy in a small but busy strip shopping centre, while indoors is urban chic and the service is friendly and quite swift!
