Critic's review

Food
The focus is on ‘real food’ using fresh, local ingredients in simple dishes with a healthy spin on organic, preservative-free farm produce. A good-value country menu is inspired by deli fare – Tokara’s own olive oils, artisanal cheeses and charcuterie, preserves, pastries, cakes and quiches. Enjoy a cheese or antipasti platter or the weekend lunch buffet. Great for big country brunches or unpretentious lunches of wholesome sandwiches, salads and burgers – plus a special kids’ menu.

Wine
Sample a selection of Tokara’s own wines by the glass or bottle.

Service
The hands-on mother-and-daughter team oversees good, attentive service.

Ambience
Casual – feel free to wear shorts and slops. Enjoy the views on summery days, and the huge fireplace inside on rainy days.

And...
Child-friendly, with toys, colouring books, story books and tree-house nests for little ones. (GH)

  • I popped into the deli for a birthday lunch and was told that they were fully booked. I then asked the manager if I could wait for a table to free up and he said  they don't do waiting lists. I accepted this due to it being the busy easter period. I turned to leave but then ran in for a quick bathroom break before heading on my way. The manager obviously didn't see me. I then had the privilege of witnessing him literally run after a white couple he turned away in front of me for not having a reservation, to tell them a table just freed up and they are welcome to take it. I could not believe what I saw. The only difference  between me and them was skin colour. The fact that this happened to me at place like Tokara is absolutely disgusting. Clearly racism is in full force at Tokara. I will not be spending a cent there ever again.

  • It's hard to beat the exquisite setting of Tokara's Delicatessen. The design of both indoor and outdoor spaces is modern and inviting. The bird's nest is a unique attraction, and I especially enjoy the selection of olive oil on offer. Whether enjoying breakfast, lunch or tea, you'll want to linger longer. We started with tea and coffee. I am a coffee snob and have to say it was one of the Americanos I have had in my life. My mom had the Orange and Berriy Sencha tea Which was a delight to the the nose and senses. We moved on to our breakfast. My dad ordered the fruit and yogurt for us to share and had a full breakfast. My mom ordered the cheese platter with muesli. My sister ordered the Marscapone and Berry Hotcakes and I ordered the Croque Madame. Visually, everything was perfect. Our senses were tantalized by the aroma of our food. The honeycomb on my sister's hotcakes added texture to the soft, plump hotcakes and the berries added a lovely tang to the sweetness of the honeycomb. My Croque Madame was perfect. The bed of sourdough gave the eggs, Parma ham and mustard a great base for the yummy fried eggs with the lovely runny yolks. The staff were polite, friendly and very professional-knowing what goes into every dish on the menu.

  • My husband and I had Sunday lunch at the deli. We had the Caeser Salad, margerita pizza and salad with Calamari and pawpaw. The food is presented beautifully, great flavours and the portion sizes are reasonable. We ordered the Tokara Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc per glass and it was delicious! The only disappointment was the dessert. The white chocolate mouse dessert was a disaster - dense and flavorless. However, we would recommed the Deli as the atmosphere, mains and wines were fantastic

Stores and Markets

At the sight of the beautiful glass-and-concrete building you’ll know you’re in for a treat – before you’ve even stepped inside. Naturally, there are Tokara’s own olive oils, olive pastes and olives, but you’ll also find breads from the renowned Oude Bank Bakkerij and Chaloner preserves like strawberry and mint. There are cold meats like wildebeest, quail and pasture-reared chicken and handmade Turkish delight alongside traditional boerewors and gourmet cheeses too. Imported tarragon mustard and champagne wine mustard will spruce up any meal.
Smart shopper tip: Make time to sit and enjoy a light meal in this superb venue.
