Stumbled upon this restaurant by accident but was well pleased with the service, food & the prices. Friendly & efficient staff; good menu featuring lots of Banting favorites; good selection of teas & coffee. Free WiFi

Found this place on tripadvisor and went there because of the good recommendations. I had a salmon omelette witch was really good, big portion, a smoothie and for my toddler a muffin. The staff were even entertaining my son. I would really recommend this place for a nice and healthy breakfast! Thanks!

Wow! We stumbled upon 65 on Main in February 2015 by chance (I say fate)... Since then, we have been going back each time we are in Cape Town, Mei 2015 being our most recent visit. We love everything about this dedicated Banting restaurant. All their meals are Banting friendly, the staff members are excellent and the owner very involved... More

65 on Main sports a varied, tasty Banting-friendly menu. Great quality ingredients are standard and the service is friendly and professional. My current favourite is their Banting burger, a beef patty on an almond flour bun, served with a huge side salad or a portion of sweet potato fries if you wish. Reasonable prices and excellent quality are always winners... More

We've eaten here many, many times since it first opened. Sadly, our last few experiences have not been good ones. The service was extremely slow and the waitrons got our orders wrong. There was a terrible sewerage smell throughout the restaurant. The food was average and definitely not up to standard. Distinct lack of management.

Excellent relaxed family breakfast. Food quality very good, service excellent & very good sugar free cappuccinos. Everything very clean! Beautiful bathrooms even! Atmosphere very relaxing today... This small breakfast was enough to fill me. Will return next time!

It was the morning of the Cape Town Carnival and the city was abuzz with activity. All 7 of us managed to find parking with just a little extra effort. Our table was beautifully set-up on the verandah in the warm morning sun, and a bottle of bubbly was chilling on ice. The interior of the café is tastefully decorated... More
