The Cafe is located on the Sufferin Street in the White town & appears to be owned by a French lady. On my entry, i was impressed with the old town house setting with lovely lounge chairs & low tables overall giving it an old European Bohemian cafe look specially with an old cycle rickshaw presence on a permanent basis...

We had lunch in this little French colonial building with a nice yard. The food is good (baguettes) and the coffee superb. Just a nice café for having breakfast or lunch. Or just a very good cup of coffee.

Nice little place with several tables indoors and out, and a delightful garden. Cool on a hot afternoon. We had baguettes and cold drinks which were lovely but maybe a bit overpriced (@R700 for 2 people). Still we sat and chatted for ages without being bothered by staff so can't complain.

We had a late brunch here and absolutely loved the vibe. We initially stayed out near the garden but then moved inside as it was getting hotter. We had some coffee and croissants. Wanted to try some sandwiches as well but they were out of white bread and only had brown bread. I definitely recommend sitting inside to get that... More

This is good place to eat small meals,read a book and generally relax. The Cafe has a small shopping area also inside. Good place to chat with the foreigner crowd that frequent this cafe. Beautifully decorated with art on the wall and small curios.
