My in-laws took us to Melissa's, as it was one of my mother's favourite coffee shops. Very interesting, variety available. Definately not your boring ordinary coffee and toasted sandwich type coffee shop.

A very weak coffee must be less than 3/10 on the roast scale dishwash water. Waiting more than 30 min for order with restaurant only 35% occupied. Two over ripe tomato wedgesb3 stips of bacon two egg scramble egg (Free range) tasteless for R68.00. A ripp off that one must see a mile away. Never again

Melissa's sits in the same building that houses the Aquarius Luxury Suites. Which makes it a natural choice for Aquarius guests who don't want to cook their own meals. Melissa's has some buffet items for breakfast and lunch, as well as a varied list of ala carte items on the menu. Everything we have eaten there over three meals has... More

Walking distance from the beach. Open on Sundays. Great for a lazy Sunday breakfast. Open spaces and airy. Cakes and tarts really yummy. Happy place.

This was a breakfast meeting. Arrived 15 minutes before my companion and found a table towards the rear of the establishment, next to the fridge area. Whilst waiting for the person to join me, not once did any waiter come to my table or offer me a menu. Another table in the front of the restaurant became available, so I... More

This place used to be fantastic - it's now NOT worth visiting as the service is so bad and there is no management anymore. Really disappointing to see a restaurant go downhill so fast.

When Melissa Blouberg first opened it was very good, since then it has gone down hill, time and time again we have tried to give it a chance, but never again. The service is terrible, the quality of the food is poor.
