“Escape.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

This is the place you go to when you need a few hours to escape the mad rush. The surroundings might fool you from the outside, till you step inside.
Staff always friendly and helpful. Food, well the food is past brilliant. Not the cheapest, but the portion size and quality is worth every sent you spend. Freshly made every day.
Ambiance perfect. Whether its a business meeting or coffee and cake with friends.

“Good setting, pity about the rest...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2013 via mobile

The atmosphere at Cafe Bellini is absolutely perfect! The little treasures used to decorate are a feast for the eyes and mind. The menu is extensive and there is something for everyone, which is always great.

We had been to Cafe Bellini before and on this visit tried out the breakfast buffet - my husband loves breakfast and it was his birthday...

The price per person (at that time) was R85 and included tea/coffee, sausages, bacon, mushrooms, eggs, toast and cup cakes! However, there were no cereals, fruit or yoghurt (which was very disappointing).

A further disappointment was the fact that there was *nothing* special about the breakfast. It was almost as if it was created for people who eat a lot, but don't particularly care about the taste of what they're eating.

The service was also awful with many difficulties with ordering and getting our tea and coffee.

“Brunch with the girls”

Vintage decor and setting with gorgeous food and a relaxed homely atmoshere. Lovely to eat inside or out.Parking can be a bit of a nightmare if they are busy. Good weekend brunch spot close to home.

“Coffee and more”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2012 via mobile

Just off Russel Street in Benoni this Cafe is nestled in a garden offering excellant coffee, great food, tasty cakes and even a little boutique shopping!

Great for a summers day to relax outside over a meal or some coffee. The food is freshly prepared, tasty and not the ordinary.

Service is attentive and a friendly atmosphere. One of my spots to escape to and take friends!
