Super spot, lovely café feel, but they are definitely under-staffed for the lunch rush. We weren't served for nearly an half an hour before someone noticed us. Food was great though and came very fast.

This is without a doubt my favourite spot in Stellenbosch. Beautiful look, beautiful food, beautiful coffee. I've had a glitch or two service wise, but the quality of the whole experience makes up for that. I'd recommend this spot to anyone!

Such a lovely Cafe to visit!Right in the centre of Stellenbosch, which creates a great atmosphere. Probably the best "eggs benedict" I have ever had! Really worth a visit or two.

Meraki re-opened whilst we were there. We went initially just for a coffee and were blown away by the fantastic service, so we came back the next day for a super breakfast again with super service. The menu is so varied and most of the ingredients sourced locally. Pity it closes before dinner!

I was here with a friend enjoying a Chai Latte and the company ~ Meraki had a nice buzzing atmosphere in the morning and we received a very friendly service!

I went on a hot summer day and the restaurant was quite cool due to a breeze from the open doors. It seems as if they have a wide variety of food, and they also serve excellent wine by the glass.
