Owners description

1904 is a bistro with an American twist! Using the freshest local ingredients, they create hearty fare with a sophisticated flair.

They prepare smoked-on-site pulled pork or juicy burgers. Guests can wash it down with gourmet milkshakes or, if you're in the mood for something stronger, craft gin!

  • I was so pleased to find some delicious vegetarian options. Very affordable. Will definitely visit regularly. We loved it! I loved that i didn't feel like i was in Kloof. I was caught up in the space and decor. The overall experience was great. Thank you for an amazing breakfast!

  • As soon as I saw the menu I was SO excited, it's all the America without the Trump. We ordered the Rocky Road milkshake and the Cookies and Cream. The Rocky Road was alright, but the Cookies and Cream did not disappoint! It had good chunks of chocolate in it, which tasted like chocolate that you get in those cup ice creams- from when we were younger. For lunch, we ordered the Po' boy, Philly Cheese Steak, Pulled Pork Bun and Cheesy Chilly Fries (We were excited, okay!). We were also going to order the Cuban sandwich but the menu said that it contained corned beef, however, the sandwich traditionally has ham. Interesting to find out why the substitution. The Po' boy was delicious, crispy prawns and the fresh tomatoes and lettuce go really well with it. The slight hint of spiciness in the sauce (or in the crumbed prawns?) was definitely needed and added a bit of kick. The Philly Cheese Steak was meh. It lacked basic seasoning and needed something extra, caramelized onions maybe? The Pulled Pork Bun was AMAZING. It's everything you wish for when you think of pulled pork. Unlike other places, it's not too saucy or too sweet either, and you get some of that char on the meat from the grill. I've read some poor reviews about the staff etc on some other websites, but I have to say that the waiters were very friendly, attentive and knew the menu well. In fact, the waiter recommended the Cookies and Cream Milkshake which turned out to be a really good choice.
