Met with friends for breakfast. Traditional and contempory food served. The portions are big and the food good. The cafe has a nice ambiance and is located in a trendy area. It also has putside seating but much nicer inside. Parking is available right next door at the brewery. Will go back again.

Went for lunch with my wife and son. The decor was great but soon after we sat down we realized we might be in for a wait. There were plenty of staff around, and they were busy, BUT I saw at least 2 tables leave before their food arrived as they'd waited so long. Those that stayed had to wait... More

Normally we tend to read only about lunch and dinner but why not about breakfast? Many trendy restaurants re closed at breakfast time so with only a limited number of places it is sometimes hard to find a good one. Well, not in Cape Town. There is an abundance of super nice places and this is one of the. .Not... More

Nice patio for a light lunch, just a couple of minutes away from the Biscuit Mill. Staff were very friendly and the two sandwiches we had were very good.

Bread is in stark contrast to the surroundings. The seating is bright and cheery. The menu for breakfast offers a robust bread basket. The platter is large and varied with cheese, butter and jam. The dish ware is funky and the waitstaff attentive Find your way here and the wonder the hipster neighborhood

Stopped for a coffee and was tempted to order the yogurt and granola with fresh fruit. Delicious and generous portion. Loved the decor and enjoyed the free wifi. Will try lunch for another visit.

Quite an experience on Saturday afternoon...The cafe has a distinctive interior and the waiters are extremely attentive. We had oxtail, which was served with mash, a delicious gravy and carrots. The meat was tender. We had cheesecake and coffee to follow. The live music created a relaxing environment. I would certainly recommend it.

Me and my family visited this beautiful restaurant.Gorgeous interior and I can see in my mind a high tea happening but there was a little bit of business and little special attentiveness that lack.Please visit and make your own decision

The live music (every second Saturday I believe) is excellent, and the food is quite good if a bit overpriced. But the service! One table of six left in disgust after waiting 20 minutes for a wine list. I heard someone say that he'd waited over an hour for scrambled eggs! My other complaint is that the place is filthy,...
