The Hippo Boutique Hotel uses this as one of its breakfast suppliers and we found it to be very good. The atmosphere and food very good.

The toasts we ordered were okay but a little too greasy. Service wasn't bad either. Wouldn't visit again soon...

The food was pretty average. The service was very ordinary ! We arrived 30 minutes before the kitchen closed and were constantly reminded of the fact and hurried out the door. The burger was OK but nothing to write home about

I frequent Knead alot as it is close by, the breakfasts and breads are good, and pizza crusts are crispy and thin - but the toppings and flavours (of the butter chicken in particular) are inconsistent and lacking in punch. Good caesar salad (ask for extra avo and dressing).

I popped in for a sweet treat. It seems that grabbing a take-away is a bit of a mission as you just stand around awkwardly in the doorway until you are given your order.

Definitely amazing benedict eggs´ breakfasts! Their smoothies are also worth the try! Facilites and location are also a plus for this wonderful place!

It was our second time at Knead on Kloof Street. As always, the portions were generous, the bread fresh and the servings attractive. We had breakfast on Friday 30 September. The manager was surly, even when I complimented the food, This is a real downer, and would influence our next visit. He is aggressive and has no hospitality skills.

Food was good. Freshly baked breads are great. Salad portion was a bit on the small side. At potato chips were great.
