This cafe is bustling with life with wide range of drinks and food. Cosy place to hang out with friend and family. But once it's inching near 10pm, you will beg to be served anything. By 10pm, you must quit. Don't ideal for night crawlers.

When I arrived and seated myself, a friendly waiter took my beverage order. He was never to be seen again! After approximately 15 minutes, I was about to get up and call a waiter when a waitress came to my table and asked if I had ordered an Amstel, which was what I had ordered.

Caters more to the younger set I'd say but the food is good and great atmosphere. Good variety of food to choose from and normally good parking close by. I haven't had a bad meal or bad service at these chain of Restaurants.

Tried something different and had breakfast. Was very quiet and service a little slow. The breakfast menu is not outstanding but adequate - however found the food average and a little pricy for portions and quality. While I would not rush back certainly will stop by for breakfast if the need arises as conveniently placed.

I am not impressed with the location of this news cafe as it is right on the street and on hot day all the car fumes enter the premises...

Aggressive drunk guys caused problems with out group. Management need to be aware of this and ensure they have the back-up to oust miscreants.

Great atmosphere and staff. The best place for a drink on a Friday after work.

Used to go there quite a bit till they upped their prices to a stupid level. R65.00 for an average tasting avo & haloumi wrap...and you have to pay extra for chips which used to be included on the side. As long as they continue to smoke crack while pricing their food, I'm not going there anymore.
