“Delectable lunch”
Reviewed 10 May 2013

The butternut pasta in tomato sauce was sublime. My friend had the chicken pie and thoroughly enjoyed it. Beautiful setting, delicious food.

“Never Disappoints”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

One of my favourite places in Cape Town. Conveniently situated off a main free-way in quiet and leafy surroundings.The sushi stack is usually my first choice in summer. Combine that with a glass of Leopard's Leap Savignon Blanc and you have the perfect light lunch. To follow try the Apple Crumble or Bruleed Lemon Tart. The coffee is excellent too. After a meal wander around the various workshops and craft stalls. There is also an excellent plant nursery. An ideal place to take visitors. Do try and make a reservation especially if you want to sit outside.

“Delicious artisan food”
Reviewed 12 July 2012

This is a wonderful place for lunch. The ambience is great- filled with lovely trees and flowers and the food has a country fresh feeling. The chef is flexible and made a lovely salad for my veggie sister. Great art and craft shops are nearby ie within walking distance
