Owners description

This neighbourhood heirloom has been trading as a café and deli since 1904. They continue to uncover folklore from history but so far know that for most of the 20th century it was known as "The Bubby". During the 70s, 80s and most of the 90s is was painted blue and known as "Die Blou Kafee” until it was renamed by the Daly’s who nurtured it as the "Daily Deli” until mid 2014. Since then they've transformed it back to the neighbourhood's beacon of blue and renamed it "The Blue Cafe”. With the blue comes a strong emphasis on heritage and engaging with the neighbourhood: the cafe buys fresh produce grown by Tamboerskloof residents, trades on account with its patrons and delivers to their doors.

User reviews

  • A Tamboerskloof neighbourhood favourite; this cafe is perfect for breakfast on a sunny weekend morning. The coffee is consistently very good (choose the local roast rather than the boring Italian one!) and served on quirky hand-written saucers. There aren't a lot of breakfast options (the Full Monty which is a full farm breakfast, or the Baby Monty which is eggs, bacon, tomato and toast), but what they do serve is delicious and very well-priced. The kitchen is very accommodating of dietary adjustments, and service is generally helpful and cheerful.
