Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 February 2018

Coffee is always Good , but unfortunately the food is not up to Starbucks quality Like overseas , the food is premade and delivered , so if you eat a toasted cheese it just get heated up in the microwave

Very exciting for South Africa to finally get a Starbucks and the queues a couple of months later are still pretty long. Coffee is American-style which for those who prefer a real espresso, is not really up to our standards!
However, the fun drinks (frappucinos) and seasonal treats are worth a visit. But not the queue!
And it's really expensive for us poor South Africans.
But usual Starbucks standards apply - good service, friendly staff, lovely seating area. Can't go wrong. But give me a Vida e Caffe any day!

Same standard as what I have seen and the rest of the world.
Very busy with long lines, but what do you expect if there is only one Starbucks in South Africa.

i love the coffee, the biscuits are delicious, its great to see a new international brand on our shores. I can not say that the coffee or the biscuit was anything amazing and the long wait for the coffee is not worth it.
