    The waiter was very irritable. Took more than 40 minutes to bring us two juices and that only after we complained. The food was still not available for another 10 minutes. The restaurant was not busy at all. Other patrons arriving after us received their food before we got our food. The food was ok... not worth the terrible service or price. This establishment is over rated, you could get better at Wimpy
    The look of the restaurant, the service and the food was perfect. What a cozy atmosphere and lovely decor. Loved that we could still have breakfast at 13:00
    Breakfast and a little bit of a shop goes hand in hand here.
    If you're not a morning person like myself this is the perfect all day breakfast spot to start off a beautiful day in the Centre of Capetown city. This modern botanist themed cafè makes the most refreshing fresh fruit juices and offers an interesting choice of flavorsome, healthy meals. I thoroughly enjoyed the potato rossti breakfast with salmon and avo, my two absolute favs!

    What an incredible spot! I breakfasted on glorious toasted brioche spread with whipped feta cheese, thin slivers of pear and piled high with Prosciutto and rocket. It was an inspired breakfast - in fact, all of their breakfasts look inspired. I'll be back for the artichokes, poached eggs and Hollandaise, too. The interior is beautiful and moody - all glass and steel and dark green - and a vast vase of magnolia leaves. Even the cups - charcoal mugs that love to be held - are lovely. There are also some outside tables on the fanwalk - wonderful on sunny mornings. I wish they were open on Saturdays! Service was friendly and pretty swift.
