“Good coffee shop @ The Pav”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

First visit coffee & muffin courtesy of a friend. Following week & again a couple of weeks later stopped for lunch, good omelettes. Beer not cold enough but the wine was better for some ice. Efficient unobtrusive staff it's a good place to rest your weary feet after shopping at the Mall or to read their newspaper and have a good coffee/limited choice of beer & wine/cake etc or a light meal. Value for money.

“Good Breakfast”
Reviewed 28 June 2013

Good hearty Omelette, they don’t skimp on the fillings. Was totally and utterly stuffed, was good value for money. Good service and is located in a better, less noisy part of the mall in my opinion.

“Great breakfasts, sandwiches, milkshakes.....”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

I love to come here for their omelettes, to me, the best in Durban. Also some of the best milkshakes around. A lovely little cafe with a pleasant atmosphere and good food. One of the few places in Durban to serve streaky bacon, and as someone who doesn't like other bacon, it does keep me coming back. Also of course great Italian coffee :)

“Best breakfast and coffee I've ever had”
Reviewed 12 May 2011

I was visiting from the US and popped in here for breakfast. I have to say their Italian Breakfast was possibly the best breakfast I've had in my life, and their espresso-based coffee beat anything I've had in New York in the last year- it was so good I bought a kilogram of beans on the way out, and I'm already stressing about what will happen when they run out.
