6 of us came here for early afternoon lunch. There was no seating left outside so we were seated just inside, the service was very good and the menu and drinks explained clearly and with good knowledge. Food was very good, steaks done to perfection and as usual there was plenty of food on the plates.

The view is outstanding, it is unfortunate to say that the food and service is mediocre 😒 The smell was not pleasant, the cutlery was old and looked dirty - tables and menus also dirty.

The place offers great cocktails and snacks but they are very over priced, 5 sticks of cheese in shot glasses for a crazy price is not worth it at all. However the view is good, vibe is great and drinks are superb.

The place has a lot going for it. Maybe we just went at the wrong time. Waiters werent knowledgable of the menu, slow, struggled to take the order, no personality. Burgers tasteless.

We go there often for their super special breakfast! Very good vaue for money. The waiters/waitressess are always very friendly and efficient and I like the fact that the staff remains there for long periods (get to know their faces/names) Have had lunch and super there as well - very good variety to choose from. Great view!!

We often have breakfast at the News Cafe when we are visiting Cape Town. My son lives in the area and it's one of his local breakfast haunts. There is a great view of Table Mountain ( weather permitting ) and you can sit inside or out depending on the weather. We had a beautiful spring morning so sat outside.... More

It's right on Marine Drive, with the beach and stunning views of Table Mountain ahead. There is an upstairs and downstairs section. Wonderful to sit outside in good weather. The food is fresh, the service good and the prices reasonable.
