You always count yourself lucky when you can find a good place to sit, take the weight off your feet, enjoy a wonderful sandwich, and a hot or cold drink, while browsing through a mall. This is what this place offers you. Located in a busy section of the bustling Brooklyn Mall, it is conveniently positioned at a spot where you can grab a quick bite, decide on the next shop to visit, check your budget, converse with friends or recently met acquaintances, or give the kids some respite. If you are not inclined to eat while shopping, I bet you the aromas of coffee, flavorful tea, and baked goods that waft towards you as you walk past this place will have you changing your mind.

Food
Sandwiches, slices of toast, scones, bagels and the like are on offer, so it’s probably wise to take a few minutes to decide what you really are hungry for. Begin with one of their expertly brewed pour-over coffee (they say this is the oldest way of making filter coffee, one cup at a time), from a selection of single origin beans including Tanzania Kilimanjaro, Ethiopia Yirga Chaffe, and Brazil Pentabox Bruzzi among others. All that walking around the mall made you hungry, or just yearning for a substantial yet quick meal? Have the aptly named The Man Sandwich consisting of ham, smoked pork, peppered salami and bacon with mozzarella, Emmenthaler, mustard mayo, tomato and micro greens with 3, yes you read that right, 3 slices of ciabatta. The umami and meaty taste and flavors of the ham, smoked pork, peppered salami and bacon are tastefully complemented by the cheeses, mayo, and balanced by a slight tangy taste of the tomato. Feeling like something light? There is a selection of smaller sized sandwiches to choose from, including the old-fashioned mayo, cheddar toastie, ham, cheese and tomato, tuna toastie, or just a slice of toast with sugar free peanut butter, and apple slices. Careful about calories? Then choose from a variety of salads on offer including chopped chicken breast, protein quinoa, and tuna salads. The salads all have a base of baby gem, tomatoes, peppers, onions and cucumber served with a homemade herb dressing. Vegetarian meal options are also available. to end your meal here, dig into the peanut butter pudding, which is a delicious mix of peanut butter pudding, salted caramel, toasted pecan nuts, banana, chocolate sauce and cream.

Drinks
For obvious reasons, no alcohol is served here. In addition to the expert coffees mentioned earlier, there are other beverages on offer. Tea, including Earl grey, Bombay Chai and Five roses, hot chocolate, chai and matcha, milkshakes including vanilla, Berry nice, Lucky espresso and Salted Caramel, smoothies, and freshly pressed juices are available beverage options.

Service
The staff are generally friendly, welcoming and well trained, but can get harried when there is a crowd.

Ambience
Considering that it is located smack dab in the center of a busy mall, this place does an admirable job of being an oasis of calm and relative peace. It can get busy and a bit crowded, but not to the point of waiting for long to secure a table. There is a continuous flow and turnover of customers, as to be expected in a mall.

Best for...
Whether browsing through the shops, tired from shopping so much, needing refreshments for the kids, or simply out for a bite with a loved one, family or friends on a weekend, this place easily caters to your needs.

    Hands down the best sandwiches in town. The coffee and fresh bread are also amazing.
    EARLY OPEN AND ALWAYS GOT EXTRAORDINARILY BAKED BREAD,
    ESP. SOURDOUGH AND SEED LOAF.
    RECOMMENDABLE.
    What a waste of time! Service was slow, place is expensive, ended up paying R18 for a cafe latte the size of a small coffee cup and had a Croque Monsieur (clissic griled ham and cheese) for R46, its not bad, but nothing to write home about, oh and the best part, I waited more than 40mins for the sandwich!!!

    If you're in a rush, avoid this place...
    Service is great its best sour dough bread, the salads are delicious só is the orange almôndegas cake
    Seriously disappointed!! Felt for a great sandwich and I'd walked past a few times so I decided to drive through to brooklyn mall to give it a try. I ordered a roast pork toasted cheese on ciabatta to take away. 5 min later driving out I start eating my sandwich and I soon discover that not only is it hardly toasted, the bread is gross and soggy and no sign of the pork that id paid R54 for but rather a slice of gypsy Ham with chunks of cheese that hadn't even been melted. I was in a rush and couldn't turn around. Experience left me with a bad taste in my mouth and an empty stomach.
