We always make a point of visiting a Melissa's when in South Africa. Their juices are amazing and their breakfasts are phenomenal. I was not disappointed with my Eggs Benedict, nor was my boyfriend with his traditional breakfast with poached eggs.Egg-celent!!!

Came for breakfast nearly had to stay for lunch - the service was slow and the food overpriced for the quantity and quality served. There are far better options for breakfast in the area. Don't think I will return if I have another option
