Owners description

This is just the place to pick up quality lemon curd and an oversized pavlova shell to fill and pass off as your own. The homemade stock and pastry cases are a lifesaver for regular entertainers. Their generous quiches have saved many an impromptu lunch and there’s a tempting range of cakes, desserts, rusks and all manner of edible gifts. They have also extended their range to include an enviable selection of table linen, napery, plates and kitchen toys for foodies. And take a moment to savour the absolutely decadent hot chocolate, made with the real thing and frothy milk. The lunch buffet remains very good value for money and there is plenty for vegetarians and the health conscious.

User reviews

  • Popped into Melissa's for a Sunday Afternoon treat! We ordered Milkshakes, coffee and a few items from the bakery table! We waited ages for our milkshakes, when they arrived it was so disappointing. The vanilla milkshakes were terrible and tasted like watered down milk, the strawberry milkshake was just as disappointing. It then took awhile to get the attention of our waitress, to explain how the milkshakes were terrible! We asked to please rather bring us a coffee and two hot chocolates! Waitress just said ok! No apology offered! Hot chocolates were also flavourless and disappointing! Baked goods were delicious but vastly overpriced! We were not charged for the milkshakes! But can safely say I will not be going back! Melissa's is overpriced and service is slow and staff are disinterested! Will much rather support Cassis or Haaz!

  • Visiting Cape Town from Joburg I was excited to get back to the true Melissa's after the Parkhurst branch failed expectations!

    Visited on Tuesday morning for a coffee and light snack but left after 20 minutes... .had to beg to get service and was then never offered a menu! Table of 8 had just left and during our time there, staff failed to clear their table. Coffee and 1 cupcake failed to arrive after 20 minutes so sadly we left... only to discover that my chair was filthy and had stained my dress!

    Sad as this was one of my favourite spots when I lived in Cape Town!
