Owner's description

At this quaint lunch time spot, the boundaries between kitchen and dining area are a bit blurred. Without the barriers of walled-in kitchens, chefs and waiters can freely participate with the customer and their food in the beautiful white space. On offer is a selection of light meals and bakes – and beautiful art to look at.

    A bit of a trendoid spot on Long Street. Best chicken sandwich imaginable - creatively and generously presented. Really tasty stuff. A few options are sparse and boring though. Decor is clean and elegant, but really bad acoustics give a cacophonous clatter. The owners (sisters) are always present (this is good!) - but lack personality and there's a slight air about them, not strong on building customer loyalty, one gets a sense they'd rather be in downward dog. But service is efficient enough - it's a good City Bowl option.

    All we can say is that you can taste the love and honesty in the food. Intoxicating in its deliciousness. Sophistication through simplicity. Truly a gem in the city. Thank you for your gift, skinny leg ladies!

    Wonderful little spot. Great vibe, personal service and delicious food. Plus great coffee and free wifi.
    The anise creme fraiche that came with my chocolate brownie was a wonderful surprise. Loved the original and quirky feel to the place. And my mushroom risotto was great value for money. We will be back!

    I had high hopes when I saw the authentic Dutch bicycles parked outside the entrance. Inside it is a really sweet little cafe, but not quite the luxury destination it claims to be. Although thoughtfully done, the interior feels a little sparse and the beautifully designed, but too-light-to-be-practical, skinny-legs tables jump in the opposite direction as you pull up a chair. My not-so-hot lemony chicken sandwich was, well, stone cold. Although the menu does not state this fact, it is meant to be served this way, but I think it would have been way nicer if it was hot and made to order, rather that straight from the refrigerator and stiff as a dummy. Especially on a cold winters day. In all fairness, my lunch-partener loved her steaming hot mushroom parcel, served with red rice. Maybe I just had order-envy? The coffee was on the money served in Italian cafe-style brown cappuccino cups. For this I will return.

    What a breath of warm, fresh sparkling air !! As well as the deliciously inviting smell of freshly baked treats as you enter, YUM! We found it hard to leave! You can taste the LOVE in the food, We are going back as soon as we can, thank you girls!
