Discovered this place walking around Bo Kaap to the Waterfront. Quaint, lovely place full of character and charm. Delicious food and fun staff. The decor is awesome... very bohemian gay chic. Loved it

A small cosy well located venue offering all day dining. The dinner we enjoyed was well presented, full of flavour and served with joy. Friendly, warm and hospitable staff made our evening special. Also great sweets and good value for money
