Lakeside Cafe is a coffee shop and restaurant serving breakfast and lunch. This family owned cafe was established in 2005 at Pietermaritzburg’s Bird Sanctuary which has been part of the city’s history as far back as the early 1900’s. Lakeside Cafe has an al fresco setting with a spacious deck overlooking the lake where one can watch the bird life. We offer a great cup of coffee, a variety of breakfasts and a delicious lunch menu. Its closely location to the N3 and the CBD make it an ideal restaurant for business meetings, travellers needing a quick bite to eat, families & friends. Lakeside’s informal atmosphere makes for a casual experience with afternoon tea & cake. A fully licensed coffee shop offering a great wine list.
