Good Place to Stop

This is a favorite for great coffees, lovely teas, decadent sandwhiches, cakes and pastries. I love stopping here for a treat mid-shopping trip! Its an inexpensive place to stop and relax. iTs generally not very loud, but its still abuzz with conversation.

A very upmarket place for afternoon during one of our visits to the V & A Waterfront. The choice of macaroons is amazing. We just had a very simple small tea and it's not expensive considering the location. Lovely plush ambience. If you're into proper afternoon tea then this is definitely the place to go.

Myatt is the ultimate treat. The salon is beautiful decorated with great eye for detail; fresh flowers on every table, a central table display where you can help yourself to some lemon and mint water and find an array of international newspapers, coffee and tea are served in beautiful cups and saucers made of fine bone porcelain, friendly and educated...

My fave for a cup of tea and delicious macaroons, croissants alike in V&A Waterfront. Beautiful setting and not too crowded. Perfect

What better place to rest weary bones after all that hard shopping than the Myatt Cafe in the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. This is a classy place with great service, a very distinctive interior design and heavenly macaroons. Try it out.

Myatt Café is located within the Waterfront and the interior immediately catches your attention, even from a distance! It offers an elegance and classic milieu. Myatt has an interesting new fruit juice with carrot, apple and mint - refreshing!! It also offers a variety of chocolates and macaroons! Try this café as a resting stop between shopping or if you...

It's a great place to stop and rest while your other half shops but I always make a point of stopping here. The coffee is great and macaroons are probably best in area. Some very interesting desserts available and the chocolatier area offers tasty bits. The service is quick and efficient. Worth the visit.

I've always admired Myatt's coffee shop from a distance and finallj had the opportunity to visit this morning for brunch. Little did I know, I should have eaten before hand! My friend and I found a table and sat down. A few minutes went by and we hadn't been helped or given menus, so I got up to scout for... More
