Unique and delicious Meditarranean Food, great variety, very warm and welcoming atmosphere, This restaurant is one of my favourite places to go, for a meal, or a coffee, or pot of Earl Grey Tea, no matter the time of day.

The food was horrible, and the management spent more time chit chatting than addressing the complaints. While i must say the waitstaff was always courteous and welcoming. I gave the restaurant too many chances because of the waitstaff , but the food is just not worth it.

This is an acceptable but not earth shattering lunch place. I have just had my tenth lunch at cafe 41. Almost all of them were at this branch (there are half a dozen around Pretoria). I like it. Pretty honest food served well and promptly enough to make it work a busy person's lunch. The staff are courteous and helpful.... More

Ate at Cafe 41 for the first time last night. Had a great evening, with good food and more importantly great company! The meal was good, and the portions large. The menu is fairly basic but it does what it does well.

I frequently visit the Cafe 41 located at Cnr Eastwood and Pretorius Street, Pretoria - due to its location and easy access. The food are very cosmopolitan, caters for International visitor. I loved the Salmon stack breakfast with spinish and poached egg, and the interesting teas they have on offer.

This was a return visit for us [last time in Hatfield was 18 months ago] and we sat outside at a table facing the parking lot. The lit candle placed on the table set the mood and the drinks and meal that we ordered came reasonably quickly. The table staff was very attentive but not stiflingly so. As others have... More

Had a great lunch at Cafe 41 tge food was great the atmosphere superb the only damper was the disregard to tobacco laws. If you sit at what I will calk the reception court of the restaurant which is next to the make believe smoking area you are able to get a waft of smoke coming from the smoking area... More

What a find! Cafe 41 offers a wonderful spot to have breakfast business meetings or relaxed brunches, with an expansive menu to suit. Tourists hang out with embassy staff and government and other officials, all enjoying the good food, coffee and on hot days, the cooling effects of the misting sprayers.
