Critic's review

Petro Lotz

Café Neo feeds you all day. Start with the posh eggs Benedict or design your own omelette. Try the Bistecci wrap in the late morning, with grilled rump might, and for lunch, opt for the squid head salad with red onions. The Opa Opa burger is delicious with its crispy onion rings. From the pizza oven, the Pollo Inferno (with peri peri chicken strips) is a good choice, or have one of the baskets with tasty nibbles.

You could also stick a Greek theme and have a Cypriot pita stuffed with yummy sheftalia and tzatziki. The meze boards are perfect shared over a drink towards late afternoon. Dinner is off to a good start with a haloumi starter or some garlicky, cheesy prawns. There are plenty of steaks, ranging from 200g to 500g with a dizzying list of sauces and toppings. The slow roast lamb shank is a must-try.

Finish with Death by Chocolate or a Greek lemon cake.

This is the place to sip cocktails, especially on Thursday evenings, when some are discounted. Their Naughty Shakes are particularly alluring, the Nutty Berry (vodka, peanut butter and strawberry puree) being a good illustration. The wine list is functional, but not outstanding. On the non-alcoholic side, try the hazelnut latte.

It’s service with a smile here. Accomplished waiters keep guests happy and fed and see you off at the door.

Café Neo is a bubble above a busy roadhouse and bus terminal. The interior is light and breezy, with beautiful lights and funky touches. A narrow balcony allows guests to sit outside and take in the expanse of ocean in the distance.

On Sundays a breakfast buffet keeps the family happy and Dad and Mom’s wallet intact – kids under 5 eat for free.

    The view might entice you to come in and enjoy a morning coffee, brunch or lunch. Cyclists seem to fancy this place due to the breakfast 'recovery' meals on the menu. The other morning options are also great, ranging from hot, milky porridge with berries to soaked bircher muesli with grated apple, mixed nuts and honey. Opt for the hot Greek breakfast if you want to stick with the traditional eggs, mushroom and bacon trio, but it comes with a slice of halloumi cheese. There are great signature salads and sandwiches with the option of rye, health, Turkish or pita bread. The warm tuna panini and the Greek-style roast lamb are definitely some of the favourites.

  • Cafe Neo how I love thee, let me count the ways...
    1. Your roasted veg sandwich with hummus on health bread is, by far, the best meal a girl could ever ask for.
    2. A breakfast sandwich, until you close? Yes, yes please, and at 5pm, yes again.
    3. Wifi, free and fast, complimenting a cup of cappuccino, is sometimes all we ever need, isn't it?
    Genuinely, this place is fantastic and any meal you get will be a winner. It's open till 7, when most places serving good coffee close at 4, the internet is reliable, the waiters are awesome, the location is prime and easy to get to.
    Watch the sunset, sip your coffee, and enjoy the best, and honestly the best, Cape Town has to offer.
