The one thing this place has going for it is the location. Umdloti is beautiful and the views from here are incredible.
That's where the good things end unfortunately. This is the classic example of badly implemented owner/manager separation (maybe also an owner who has no finesse for food)
This is food for people who don't know what good food is. Equivalent to a bad Mugg and Bean. You might as well buy fireworks instead of spending your money here.
If you eat here, expect :
* seriously below average coffee.
* untrained service staff.
* standards such as 'tinned' blueberries being passed off as fresh fruit.
* low quality baked goods.
* very inconsistent food with a general lack of finesse.
* unavailability of certain menu items eg. types of breads specified.
I had high hopes for this place but after 3 separate visits it was nothing but a disappointment. I've experienced similar at the other Java cafes. If you want good food and are in Umdloti head further north to Ballito and stay away from any Java.
