Zanele Kumalo

This reinvigorated eatery, with a fresh new design, serves simple food made from very obviously fresh ingredients. They’ve upped their game but kept it cool, chic and honest.

The portions are very generous. Two of the favourites – a large plate of deep-fried calamari that’s tender, crispy and non-greasy, and light Thai-style fishcakes rolled into four golden balls are both accompanied by a crunchy Asian green salad that leaves a fragrant kick in your mouth from the well-balanced flavours.

For meatier ambitions, there are dishes that include juicy handmade beef burgers, roast pork belly and a decadently sauced pepper steak. On a lighter note, go for salads with rice noodles and dressings like fynbos vinaigrette and a breakfast menu with lovely Benedicts, burritos and pancakes.

You can have your cake and eat it, too – signature ones are available to order whole, plus cheesecakes, artisan ice creams and brownies will keep even those with the biggest sweet tooth happily indulged.

South African wines and a mix of bubbles and beers that include a few trendy craft options (a number on tap). It makes up an unintimidating selection. It also includes standard cocktails, whiskeys, liqueurs, aperitifs, digestifs and non-alcoholic fare highlighted by a homemade ginger-mint tea.

The waiters are attentive and enthusiastic, adding to a welcoming, no-fuss atmosphere.

For those who find it difficult to dine alone, this is the kind of place that will shift that kind of thinking. There are enough nooks to tuck yourself into while you mix with the kinds of families, couples and crowds who are just there to have a good time and enjoy an unpretentious meal.

    Florentine eggs were lovely Service was good Lovely outdoor seating
    Most importantly, out of all the breakfast spots we visited this weekend, Salvation Cafe’s coffee was the best of the bunch! Loved 44 Stanley.
    Delicious Breakfast, the best I've had in a while.
    Amazing food. The service is not great. We got a broken off piece of carrot cake which we paid R42 for. Everything is great except the service.
    Worst Service. Lack of options for vegans & vegetarians, the menus are closed when you want other options. I believe that Restaurants like this WILL NOT MAKE IT IN THE NEW DAY AND TIME WITH PEOPLE HAVING DIFFERENT DIETARY OPTIONS AND THEN NOT BEING CONSIDERATE TO OUR HEALTH... MAYBE THEY SHOULD RETHINK WHAT THEY ARE DOING. utterly Disgusted & Disappointed by the place.
