Love this place. Patrick and the gang are super kool. They made me feel very welcome. Loved the talks we had about Cape Town and other countries in Africa and the politics of it all. Eric Comba was there performing and he was amazing. Can't wait to hang out with the crew again. Thank You! Keith from the USA

We came here for the happy hour. Surprisingly there are no Mojitos available for it. So we picked a Strawberry Daiquiri and another one from the house cocktail list. 35 rand each. Both were really not worth it. The daiquiri came out of a machine, tasted 100 percent artificial and extremely sweet. No taste of strawberrry at all. Could've been... More

Located in the vibrant long street in Cape Town, the mojito Cafe is one of the bar, nice looking outside. Happy hours are 17 to 19h and after 23h for some cocktails only, for an good price of 35R. But unfortunately the mojito is not included in the list of cocktails during this period. The rhum cocktail and the margarita... More

We really enjoyed the fusion food we selected for our late breakfast at Cafe Mojito -- almost brunch in fact. Great value as well!

After having delayed flights, and landing late, we decided on Long Street, and ended up at Cafe Mojito. They could seat us immediately. It was already late, but we could still order. The service was very quick, professional and efficient. There was a live band which added to the already great atmosphere. It was however too noisy to be able... More

I found this place while I was reading an articles about nice spots in Cape Town. The journalist was right about this place. If you go there between 4 to 7 pm, you can have a cocktail for just 35R and this deal is incredible! I met some nice guys from Cape Town and I really enjoy my night there.... More

This is my #1 fav in Cape Town. The whole feel about it makes me want to travel to Cuba. Another reason I love this place is because it's the 1st place I took my partner to before we started dating so it has great sentimental value. Live bands also separate it from the rest of the places on this... More
