Since my husband needs to be in die City Center quite early, Arnold's is the perfect restaurant to visit. Mr T is one cool manager, the coffee hot and fragrant, service professional and food well presented and prepared. The best choices and good quality ingredients makes for a great peaceful and tasty meal. Well done folks.

A long-time favourite of mine. I have since moved abroad, but always try and make an effort to get and enjoy their renowned breakfast. A popular hangout with the rustic mix of folk, you know what to expect when you are there. Service is to be commended.

We ordered the African game platter and were not disappointed. There were 4 different pieces of meat wich were cooked amazing. The fries and salad could have been a bit more.

We were looking for a perfect breakfast spot on a rainy Cape Town morning. What joy to order breakfast at Arnold's. I had their scrumptious french toast with peach, ginger and mascarpone and my wife ordered the eggs benedict. Our 10 year old just loooved his omelette. See you guys again@

If you want a cheap breakfast at 06:45 - 07:00 then Arnold's is a great place. The coffee is not great but was also not bad. Service is fast and friendly and the eggs Benedict is delicious... this was my R23 breakfast, bargain!

Fair at best. Great outdoor table and very good service. Menu just so. Needs an overhaul. Old school concepts with little effort paid to sides. We were here 3 years back the place has lost its mojo. Pity.
