We sat at the bar and just people watched in the mall for about an hour. The food was really good and the prices were reasonable.

This W Cafe used to be really good. They particularly used to gave a good Harvest Table for lunch. Now it is dreadful. The Harvest Table has been pared back to the bare minimum, with cheaper ingredients. A la carte os hardly better. Today my...husband and child and I came here for breakfast. The high chair brought for our baby wasn't clean - we had to clean it ourselves. It took forever to bring our food, and only after we asked about it. It had apparently sat somewhere as it was dry and cold. By that time the baby was screaming. The pulled pork sandwich came with almost no meat and hardly any garnishings - close to inedible. Then we ordered coffee. One was a decaf - I haven't had caffeine in years and have a string physical response to it. It turned put it wasn't decaf and I was trembling for an hour afterwards. We struggled to get a bill as well. Terrible food, terrible service. Never again.More

I had a pleasant experience at the W Cafe. I was at the Rosebank mall to board my City Sightseeing bus for a city tour of Jo'burg and I had 30 mins before my bus could arrive so I walked into the cafe and packed...myself a sandwich for my ride and took a smoothie to go. Both the items were good and I had no regret picking it up. Service was good with a smile and it was not too expensive either.More

Light meal after a shopping day in Rosebank mall. It was the right choice to have a coffee and eat a light meal. Also the cafe offers a range of fresh bakery products that could be also nice for a breakfast at the Mall.

I am addicted to Woolies cappuccino and it is simply sublime. I feel strongly about the inconsistencies in the standard presented at the various branches throughout South Africa regarding the food. This is seriously compromising the Woolworths brand. The outsourced cafes do not live up...to the high standard I love about Woolies and I do not understand how and why this is happening and therefore not better managed? I can quote many examples but one that happened on Saturday is the bizarre situation of being told they do not have croissants when this was the centre piece of the dish I ordered. Furthermore freshly baked croissants were available not 20 meters away at the Woolies bakery or as pre-packaged ones from the shelf! Situations like these make it hard to stay loyal.More

W is for Woolworths, but think more marks and Spencer. We stopped by for a couple of smoothies, and they were very good.

After a full day of touring, I wanted something different -- not a beer or just a cuppa, but something good. This place had it -- a smoothie and a peanut butter sandwich. That may sound funny, but it is just what I wanted and...this place had it. Plus they had great service and free 30 minute wifi. Can't beat it and I'd go again.More
