Whilst the food and drinks is the average for cafes, we found the continuous interference and belligerent comments by the person who identified himself as the owner as a permanent put-off. The only reason this place is not rated poor is because it has potential.

Been here a few times now and each time have been totally underwhelmed. Service is bad - waiters are poorly trained and slow. They spend more time chatting to each other than watching their tables. The coffee is good and the smoothies are divine, but the food I've eaten there has been totally lacklustre. My team will never go there... More

Arrogant waiters, trying very hard to be into the "yuppy upmarket scene" but actually... not nice at all. Food so-so. Drinks expensive. I would not recommend at all.

I come here 4 times a year to find the entire staff has been replaced...Bar eats not complicated, avarage priced and good choice of draft beer. Lately giant road and building works just next to and behind makes for some elevated noise and dust levels.

Good for a sun-downer, food is the same in all the branches - consistency is always there. Friendly staff and an attentive manager.

I ordered a cocktail and the waiter got it completely wrong! He admitted he may have mixed up my order then returned and said i'll have to pay for it anyway. A very rude manager named Junior came to me and said he'll have to take me to his boss if I refuse to pay for a drink i didn't... More

Our team went there for breakfast this morning. Firstly no bacon - NO BACON - even though we were there for breakfast. So the ones who ordered the English Breakfast opted for boerewors. One chose the flapjacks with ice cream and requested that the flapjacks be plain. So the flapjacks come covered with some kind of chocolate spread, while the... More

Very relaxed placed for lunch, breakfast or just a coffee. Food is great and lots of choice. Bathrooms are worth a visit!
