This is the cafe to meet a business partner, interview an individual etc. Not fancy but great for breakfast, good coffee and filling lunches. The art is really great on the walls so do check this cafe out,

I don't highly rate The Red Cafe, their food is ok, coffee ok, service ok. Just an average place. The art on walls is great to look at though.

This establishment has been around for years and has always hobbled along.....no longer, it is now a vibrant place and the coffee shop and art gallery have been integrated. You sit amongst the ever changing art works, if you're lucky an artist may actually be doing his thing while you're there. Well worth a visit. The staff are friendly and... More

This cafe does a lot real food offerings like home made burgers and bobotie. The ambience is relaxed but still not too informal. Had a burger and it was a great lunch. Manager was present and very friendly.

This local coffee shop is small, bedecked with art and has a buzzy communal vibe. It's very much a neighbourhood place that serves good light meals, great coffee and moreish chai lattes. They have weekly paint jams where customers can also watch art, by local artists, truly come alive. Service is friendly if somewhat chaotic given the general busy-ness of... More

Lovely little gem stuck away in a corner of a shopping center. Breakfast was delish, coffee arrived hot abd in a nice size mug, waiters were friendly. Will I visit again?, absolutely.

Red The Café shares its space with Red The Gallery so top art abounds and adorns the walls around you. Very pleasant staff, many of whom have been there for several years. this place makes superb Americanos and light meals throughout the day.

Having just returned from an overseas trip my wife and I popped in for breakfast. we were impressed by the pleasant greeting and service from the efficient staff and the menu offers a good selection fro breakfast, brunch, lunch or just coffee. Our traditional English and croissant with bacon fried banana and maple syrup were well presented and delicious.

Had to meet a colleague at The Red Cafe, Steenberg Village, for lunch. Struggled to find lunch time parking but was able to get a quiet table. The service was friendly and prompt and the menu varied enough to take a few minutes to choose. The ingredients were fresh and tasty and they served a great dry cappuccino. What I... More

Great little gem. Tucked away in a corner is a little gem of a coffee shop. Friendly staff, great coffee and complements to the chefs that get our order right. Only 1 negative, the shop is like a sauna. Get your air conditioning fixed please
