Critic's review

Thando Ndabezitha

Food
Consider moreish choices like various hummus-lined bowls filled with all sorts of vegetable goodness, tasty wraps, gluten-free pizzas and generous open sarmies. The burgers, though, are arguably the showstoppers. Once you sample them, you’ll realise that (truly!) the greatest burgers ever made are vegetarian! A relatively new and exciting creation is the Argentinian: your choice of a vegetarian, falafel or quinoa patty topped with homemade chimichurri on a divine, freshly made bun (seriously, you could eat it on its own with just butter) and served with French fries or sweet potato chips.

You could, of course also go for a less indulgent but equally delightful light lunch of spinach-and-feta phyllo, or a vegetarian shepherd’s pie made with curried lentil stew featuring red peppers, onions and mushroom, topped with butternut-and-potato mash.

Drinks
Freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices are par for the course, as are smoothies and healthy shakes. On a relaxed weekend afternoon, you may, however, also be tempted to knock back one or two glasses of local craft beer – Darling Brew and Arid Gluten Free choices are available – or organic wines. You can buy a Circle of Life red or white by the glass. Stellar Organic chardonnay is sold by the bottle at a reasonable mark-up.

Service
Staff are friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable about the menu. Service can get a bit slow at times of high traffic, like lunch, so don’t come here stressed. It’s also probably wise to bring your parallel-parking A-game, as parking can sometimes be tricky to find and get into.

Ambience
This has long been an establishment in Emmarentia. With vast indoor and street-side seating available and a calm, mellow vibe, it’s the kind of place you can meet with family, friends and colleagues alike.

Best for…
Breakfast, brunch and lunch any day of the week.
