I recently had lunch at Lazari and ordered the Buddah bowl which was the most dreadful meal I have ever been served in a restaurant, despite that the waiter told me I'd made a good choice. They clearly have no idea. It's a bland and boring dish. The rice and lentils were served cold and stodgy from the fridge and... More

I'm living in the neighborhood for a couple of months, so Lazari is my "local." Great food (try the scrambled eggs with croissant) and friendly staff. I don't think you can go wrong here. They offer breakfast (egg dishes, meusli/yoghurt, etc.) as well as lunch (salads, sandwiches).

I often have breakfast at Lazari......their health breakfast is particularly good, plenty of fruit muesli and yoghurt. Their menu is extensive and the cafe is used primarily by locals, always a good sign.

Going to Lazari is always a treat, whether on my own, to meet friends, or for a work meeting, I'm always greeted by name, with a smile, and made to feel right at home. The service is always friendly and jovial, so whatever my mood, Lazari is always uplifting. It's my cafe, which my neighbours share, a wonderful location, stunning... More

Ok, so it's my local corner cafe, and I'm a little biased, but everyone I take to Cafe Lazari agrees. It's a phenomenal place. Everything on the menu is delicious, it's reasonably priced, the staff are friendly and the pink cupcakes are to die for! They are world famous, literally. You haven't had a true Cape Town experience unless you've... More

Good selection of proper food. I love the chicken livers and the salads. I always have cake, it is fresh and delicious. Nice people, no rush and easy parking.

We are regulars at Lazari, simply because the quality of the food and service is excellent. On the weekends they make the best eggs benedict I, my family and friends have ever experienced. The cakes and cupcakes are also amazing. Highly highly recommended.

Whether it's a coffee or breakfast or lunch or a snack.....this is the place. The team are always friendly & helpful. The menu is fresh & fun & if by some little chance you crave something that's not on the menu, the kitchen team will do their best to create it for you. Enjoy.
