“"Food with a story to tell"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

OK, this place is so good it needs a story
so here goes:

Salvation must be tried and enjoyment is almost certainly guaranteed. I can confidently declare that after a long and thorough search that the Carribean French Toast is the best in town and happily, it can be requested in a duo, coupling the glorious sweetness with a more sensible but no less sensational savory start.

This laid back hearty fare, is found in a hip and arty complex, which is just the place to walk off any overindulgence.

Can't imagine any disappointment here, one of the best things about Johannesburg.

“Salutations to Salvations Cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

This cafe in the delightful 44 Stanley development is fabulous. If weather is good sit outside under the olive trees. Salads were fresh, fish cakes perfect and they do delicious iced tea. I popped in and out of shops while waiting for the food to arrive...a perfect way to while away a couple of hours in this surprisingly fascinating and beautiful city.

“A favourite”

Unassuming. Delicious breakasts and lunches, organic seasonal ingredients, fantastic service, range of unusual wines, junk shop decor(so chairs not always comfortable)
