Our group really enjoyed eating and having a couple of beverages at this laid back restaurant. The staff was great and the menu had some great surprises. Had a wonderful Thai curry chicken (not bad for the middle of Africa) and had an excellent special of the evening call "Bunny Chow" The actual plate was Durban beef curry in a... More

Serendipity is located in a pleasant little enclave, secure, attractive, decent food and quite inexpensive. We ate outside on a pleasant evening, mostly vegetarian choices, all very good. Next to Mama Mia's where an outdoor musician was performing. Service good as well.

I had a cheese and tomatoe sandwich, which was so tasty and fresh. The cappuccino was great as well. The ambience is great. Parking is sometimes a challenge. Both the inside and outside parking sometimes get so full that one has no where secure to park their cars. Otherwise, it's a cool place.

Grilled cheese without actually melting the cheese, oily chips, and an unsatisfying cappuccino. My friends have had more positive experiences here. Its fairly convenient to work but not worth a special trip.

The introduction of Serendipity was a huge face-lift for Old Town Mall. This is a stylish cafe, with good food and lovely coffee.
