Called in on visit around cape peninsula. Wanted a snack and coffee. Ideal place for this. Friendly helpful waitress and excellent Illy coffee. Would have liked to explore the shop but time constraints prevented us. What a good excuse to go back.

Went in for a quick lunch and wanted to stay. Great atmosphere. Fantastic Service. And really good food. Great Burger. The cook and waitress were fun and good conversation. We wanted to stay and drink beer the rest of the day.

Since The Meeting Place is not The Meeting Place anymore, it is not quite as special anymore, but the location is still fantastic, eating lunch on the balcony, overlooking the harbour of Simon's Town, food is still good and wine excellent !
