It's time to up the game. The pics show the customer side hygiene experience. Let's hoping the kitchen side was not as bad. After this, couldn't bring ourselves to order food, so instead had hot drinks which were well made and well priced. The venue is off the busy Jan Smuts, and if you mind the very busy foyer where...

Some of the best coffee in Johannesburg, an ideal place to grab a quick breakfast, fuel up on coffee and catch up with friends or on some work.

Been back so many times it's now my place. Lovely vibe- super breakfast options especially for the banter. Tea and coffee beautifully served. I've even had the flour free cakes - to die for

This is our favourite breakfast spot in Johannesburg. The poached eggs are always perfectly done, the bacon crispy and the spicy tomatoes and mushrooms heavenly. The juices are freshly squeezed and are delicious. The service can be slightly slow so it is important to get your order in fairly soon after you sit down.

Serves light and fresh breakfast with soft live background jazz music, worth getting up early to spend some quality time there.

Very good coffee and breakfast - yummy spicy tomatoes, a must-try, makes for a nice change. Service could have been a bit more attentive, my second coffee-order never was served...

We visited Park Cafe this morning for breakfast. I found the selection of breakfasts to be average but classic breakfast choices such as Eggs Benedict is not on the menu. I had scrambled egg on ciabatta toast - no butter on toast - and very plainly served. All in all, the breakfast was tasty and I did enjoy it. We... More

Finding this place was such a highlight of our visit to Joburg. If you didn't know where to look, you might actually walk past it and not even notice it's there! We ordered the flapjacks with crispy bacon and strawberries. It was absolutely to die for! And we also took some of their macaroons to go - hmmm delicious! The... More

.....And the coffee. I had a business meeting there,lovely, light place, the service is fast, friendly and unobtrusive, a perfect venue for any purpose. The food is competitively priced and delicious. I happily recommend it to anybody, possibly not a good idea to bring children there.
