If you are a tea lover, this is the place to go. The menu is like a thesis of tea options with detailed explanations. The waiter explains how long the tea needs to brew. There are also coffee options and they have a small selection of confectionery. There is parking directly outside along the (busy) street.

Been frequenting this place since 2012. It has a great selection of teas, wonderful Origin coffee and Asian fusion vegetarian meals served by warm and friendly staff and - not infrequently - owners. Free unlimited wifi and selection of games makes this place an all-day hangout joint.

Just home from an amazing experience at O'ways. I had been here once previously but did not really appreciate just how dedicated and hands on the owner was. Today was a revelation.

My wife and I did the tea tasting one morning on our trip to Cape Town. The owner took time out of her day to help us select 5 teas, and they were all great! She spent time explaining how to properly steep them, drink them, and made wonderful conversation about tea and life in South Africa. We took a... More

Situated very close to our offices O'ways has become out local coffee shop. The quality if the Origin Coffee, diverse range of teas and delicious vegetarian menu form part of the attraction. It is however the friendliness of the owner and her staff that make the place so special.

A friend who is in the early stage of becoming a "Tea connoisseur" invited me join in on a tea tasting afternoon. It was delightful to say the least. From the time we stepped through doors out of the hustle and bustle of office staff on their lunch break and shoppers hurrying by, we were in a wonderful cocoon of... More

Met a friend for tea and what an amazing place! I don't know what is best - the restful atmosphere, delicious coffee smell, amazing assortment of teas, quiet attentive staff, the tea ritual itself - or the raw dairy-free cheesecake which was beyond delicious! Worth a trip just to experience.

The food was absolutely DELICIOUS! The staff was very very helpful and sweet! The tea was very good! But the home made hot chocolate was THE BEST. The owners are the sweetest most helpful people I've ever met. GO GO GO THERE!!!

Their teas are amazing and they have a large selection. Their cappucinos and coffees are also great. Their food is delicious but I prefer their egg-based breakfasts to their lunch menus. Friendly staff and warm environment.
