Good lunch spot!

Cute spot with a rustic feel. Had lunch here with a local friend. Tried one of their sandwiches and a wine flight. Great combo. Was told to try some of their desserts, but they... read more

Fails on many levels. 1. Communication between service staff is problematic and disruptive. While one waiter is setting up your table a second clears it without any food having appeared. 2.Communication between kitchen and front of house is problematic. My order was send to a wrong table and a simple bread platter took 45min to materialize. 3 Waiting staff is... More

We sat down to come and enjoy some of our favourite Kombucha as usual, but once again got served by very incompetent staff member, who doesn't know the menu items and argues that they are out of stock when we told him that we just held the bottle in our hands at the fridge downstairs, to the point that we...

The decor is rustic and eclectic and you feel as if you have stepped back in time. Lovely brunch options served the whole day. There are also tasty artisanal breads, deli foods and pastries which are delicious to take home. A lovely different place to eat and drink and the staff are all very friendly and helpful.

Amazing food and vibe. Very rustic looking with modern touches. My greatest concern from eating here atleast once every two months for the past 3 or so years is that teh portion sizes are shrinking and the prices are going up. I was disappointed when I got my regular creamy scrambled egg and bacon dish only to see the bread... More

I had a milkshake and it was like water and it was so rubbish because there was also no coke or cream soda.

As a local, it always feel as if I'm stepping into another, magical world. Not only is the decor and ambience eclectical, other-wordly, interesting and unexpected, but there is nowhere pastries and bread so delectably good as.... just here! Make sure you visit early, as the daily freshly baked goodies fly off the shelves. The coffee is strong, rich &... More

What a place - warm, inviting, cosy, quirky, interesting. Suitable for a family, a couple or a group! Outdoors seating area, indoors downstairs or upstairs. There is something for everyone! The food is the best we've had in South Africa so far! The cappuccino was excellent! Must try - bread with dips, cold cuts and cheese to share - back... More
