We stopped here for a quick hot chocolate and slice of cake after having taken my fiance on a tour of my old university. I was pleasantly surprised! The hot chocolate was good and the cakes were AMAZING! I would highly recommend the Carrot cake!

Lovely little hideaway in a busy shopping area. Pretty garden to sit in but was a bit cold so we sat inside. Very comfy and welcoming. The food was very good - I had a chicken wrap and it was excellent. My family also had no complaints. Would definitely go back.

Revelations is my favourite restaurant in Grahamstown when it comes to breakfasts. The service is generally quick (and after one or more returns they are likely to remember your favourite menu item), the coffee is good, but those softly scrambled eggs are simply outstanding.

Nothing outstanding to say about this cafe. Can best be described as mediocre in all respects ... Quality, service, cleanliness and hospitality

We are sorry to hear that you did not have an enjoyable experience with us. This is most definitely NOT what we strive for.
