A lovely spot for lunch or coffee in the sun. We had cabinet salads (beautiful, yummy, worht the four stars) to save ourselves for the desserts that awaited us, but alas, the slices we had looked too good to be true.

We were on our way home that morning when we decided to get breakfast before we left Alexandra. We were very pleased to have chosen The Courthouse Cafe.

Had the best ever brunch with old friends. Very busy but large outdoor seating meant we could enjoy, linger and talk over our most delicious food. Good service.
