Just to let you know this very nice restaurant has been closed since June - a local foodie website says "permanently' which is a pity as it was always busy when we visited

This special deli provides a welcome respite from the busyness of the surrounds. Great cakes and teas as well as freshly made light meals and snacks. Browse the interesting shop too for original gifts.

Went there three times in a short week's stay! Fresh green salad combined well with spicy butternut squash and avocado, excellent cappuccino, and a slice of delicious carrot cake big enough to feed a family.

A hidden gem of a cafe in a peaceful garden setting above Vause Road, we came here several times while staying nearby on holiday. Reliably delicious fresh food for breakfast and lunch, plus excellent cappuccinos. We especially liked the huge interesting salads and also the salmon, poached egg and avo on rosti breakfast dish (nice to give wheat a break!).... More

We recently attended a 60th celebration with another 30 or so party goers, the buffet food selection was well prepared, the wines kept flowing, the views over Durban are superb, and the service was good. Casual, relaxed, and delightful!

Quaint setting in a local nursery located in residential area. Decor can do with a face lift, however very friendly service level and food tasty. Will return.

Simple garden centre eatery. Everything is well cooked and presented. Nice staff. Eat inside or out. Parking a bit of a challenge.

I used to pop in often for a quick cup of coffee to this venue. However, visited this week, to find it under new management, and very quiet which felt odd. Ordered the usual coffee an was soo terribly disappointed. The coffee was warm and burnt. It probably could be a contender for the worst coffee in Durban. I did... More

One arrives at the small restaurant having walked through a gift shop area which is attached to a nursery - you can hardly believe that this is a busy residential area. There are a couple of tables and chairs outside where parents could watch their children play on a jungle gym or swing which is a very basic area. There... More

Lovely get away almost in the middle of the city where you forget that you are in a built up area. The attached nursery is well stocked and provides a refreshing change.
