This is the perfect spot for your morning fuel or a quick bite at lunch. The menu is small, but offers enough variety to suit all tastes.
The grass-fed beef burger comes highly recommended by the waiter, and my palate agrees at first bite. The patty is charred to perfection; cooked to a soft medium texture, with the outside sporting straight-off-the-grill marks. It comes with a generous amount of cheese, and jalapeños for a bite. (Tip: add avo if it’s in season). It comes with a side salad and moreish truffle tries – seasoned just right, it sure satisfies those hunger pangs.
For something heartier, try the slow-cooked shortrib served on sourdough. It’s pull-apart tender and packed with flavour, topped with a perfectly cooked poached egg. If you’re after something lighter, try the Panko salad starring greens, quinoa, roasted nuts and a Panko egg.
Breakfast options include a breakfast roll of fried egg, bacon, tomato relish, Boerenkaas and grilled banana. Or try the health bowls.
They don’t do desserts, but there are really deliciously fragrant cinnamon buns and cardamom buns on offer.
They have a small selection of wines and teas as well as a few healthy and delicious cold-pressed juices on offer, including coffee from Espresso Lab Micro Roasters.
Fast, efficient and friendly.
Located in the hip de Waterkant area, the building features a sleek glass facade that makes it airy and allows for lots of natural light to pour in. It feels laid-back and semi-casual, with trendy industrial-chic interiors and pops of colour.

Best choice when it come to year-end funtions, CPD meetings, secretaries functions. Their flair and good food is great for a memorable occation! Zunia and Mel are chefs and hosts to none!
Love this place! Very cool, relaxed, cosmopolitan feel but still very Cape Town. They have created a spot that feels welcoming for everyone, and still exclusive. And about the food - short but delicious menu. Great eggs! And the coffee is to die for, one of the best in town. Service is really good and friendly. Loading Bay is also a great place to just sit and watch the crowd. Having the best clothing stores in Cape Town behind your table is a big bonus.
Trendy place with relatively good food. But I visited the place three times, each time there is a problem with the order. Today, one of the waiters treated us as if he was doing us a favour. The order messed up 5 times today. But don't try to argue or complain. That just makes them more defensive and they blame the new staff. It is a pity.
