Well it was different, sitting out on the pavement watching the Sunday morning peeps, with a great cuppuchino at hand. So my breakfast was a breadbasket if I may call it that with egg, bacon and a tomato salsa, they are made in large cup cake pans is how I would explain it. They were enjoyable but the bread was...

This was really a case of the company being so nice that I barely noticed the food. Had a salad with strawberries, feta, avo and bacon which I swopped for chicken. Nice presentation but the chicken was dry and tasteless. I can't remember there being any avo. There were swirls of balsamic glaze decorating the rim of the plate which... More

This is one of my favorite spots for tea and cake - I do know where to find lovely cake 😀 So decided it would be a brilliant spot to take my sister for breakfast one earlyish Sunday morning - it wasn't yet busy so we didn't have to wait long although people did begin to linger for a table... More

Nice is an institution in Parkhurst and I can see why. The day we went it was full and we were lucky to get a table. The coffee was great but the cake was divine. And it is a great place to people watch. I will definitely go back when in Johannesburg next year. Thank you.

We have only ever had breakfast here but I can honestly say the breakfasts are so good! We have had all the baskets which are amazing and their flapjacks are just as good. The service is good and it has a great atmosphere too! They do not take bookings so it is essential to get there early.

A friendly, relaxed atmosphere with good service and a varied menu. The menu offers different and interesting options, like an "egg basket". I tried the 1/2 and 1/2 - egg basket and crumpets. Yum, what a treat - tasty, well presented and different. Choose from inside or outside tables (on the pavement). Give it a try, I'm sure you won't... More

Nice on 4th is a homely owner-run restaurant at the end of the Parkhurst strip. It is brilliant for breakfasts, brunches, lunches and teas. The staff are friendly, efficient and attentive. On weekends you usually have to wait five or ten minutes for a table. Nice on 4th offers some innovative choices, like their half-n-half (egg basket and crumpets side... More

What a treat!!! We loved it. With a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and a touch of " it's the place to been seen " I can fully understand why. The Salmon breakfast basket was delicious, at R85 for two I did not find it over priced as they are filling. We treated ourselves to a Roulade ( strawberries and marscorpone rolled... More

Fantastic breakfast! Interesting and delicious take on eggs, bacon and toast! The toast is made into a basket and the eggs and bacon are placed inside with tomato relish. Great ambience and vibe. Lunch menu looks great as well. Probably very busy on weekends and off street parking maybe difficult to come by as there are other restaurants close by...worth... More
