Critic's review

Katharine Jacobs


Adam and Joel Klein’s tiny New York-style deli is perpetually packed with bagel-and latke-eaters.

If you can’t beat them, join them, preferably with a latke Benedict. Poached eggs rest on scrumptious pulled pastrami and crispy potato latkes. The delicious house pastrami also appears in the hash with eggs. Alternatively, tuck into one of the breakfast bagels with house lamb bacon, fried egg, cheddar and tomato; or the challah French toast.

For lunch, bagels are the way to go – try a Reuben with pastrami, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, Russian dressing, and a pickle on the side. Else there is the chicken and matzo ball soup.

Finish with potato latkes served with not-too-sweet apple sauce and sour cream, or rugelach.

The coffee is good and there are also fresh juices. If it’s that sort of a brunch, go for a bloody Mary with pickle brine, horseradish and a pickle.


It’s a bright, hip little space with white walls and a beautiful wood-panelled bar. Frequent exhibitions by local artists add colour to the walls.


There’s a new, second branch on Church Square in the CBD, and a stall at The Oranjezicht City Farm on Saturdays.

  • This place does everything right. Having gone so many times I have probably tried everything on the menu and everything is fantastic. Personal lunch favourites are the tomato soup with a grilled leek grilled cheese dipping sandwich, and the hot pastrami on rye. Bagels are also the best I've had in Cape Town. If you don't want a bagel for breakfast have the eggs benedict with come on potato latkes with pastrami instead of bacon (omg!). Coffee is great, service is great, Adam, one of the owners, is super friendly, decor is simple but perfect...oh and they also make a killer green juice. Make a plan to go there, you can't take a wrong turn with their menu.

  • Please all do yourselves a favour and try out this amazing place! Their breakfast is simply amazing, I had the potato rostis with poached egg and hollandaise sauce. As I left I spotted a jar of mini croissants that were filled Nutella - they were to die for! This is definitely my new hangout spot
