We had breakfast at this café, the staff were friendly and gave good service. The café is warm and homely. The food is great and very fresh, their cakes were delicious and are daily baked. I really enjoyed their food and service.

Of the best sandwiches we ever tasted. The menu is great (food combinations that works), the food is great quality and fresh, the service quick. Something for everyone - banting, salads, meats, pasta, sandwiches, breakfast, cakes. Cafe-style destination on the street. Would love to come again

Pure Cafe has to be one of Pretoria's best kept secrets! The menu offers interesting, out of the box, healthy dishes in a lovely setting. The service is good, and prices affordable. Excellent choice for a business breakfast/brunch/lunch!

Our team kept popping out to get orders from pure last week whilst we were on our strategy session. We had the tastiest wraps and salads and could rest assured that they were of optimal quality and health as they were comprised of the tastiest ingredients. They are indeed guilt-free pleasure!

Once again we were not disappointed. The menu offers very unique healthy dishes. I had the very tasty aubergine dish, my wife the smoked trout breakfast. Great suburban cafe with good atmosphere and service. Good value for money.

Food was good, not great. Interesting menu. Very disappointed with the cake/ pastry selection. Had lunch and cake. We had to ask for service the whole time, unfriendly and unhelpful staff. Wont go back. Far better places in pretoria.

Management response:

Good day Thank you so much for your review. I do apologise for the bad service and reviews like yours help us as owners to make sure our staff gets reminded how imported good customer service is. Generally, our customers are satisfied with our food and service so this really comes as a surprise. But this is unacceptable and we... More

I align myself with those who say that a sure sign of a good chef is the way he/she prepares a fried egg. The 'Pizza Breakast' at the Pure Cafe in Colbyn this morning ticked all the boxes for me. A quintessential sub-urban Pretoria cafe that has been a favorite escape for me on weekend mornings for many years. And... More
