We had to vist twice a day!

Don't like the coffee and I don't like the vibe. Am prepared to admit I may be in the minority here, because it seems to have a following. Its just not me! I don't like the decor, the service or the music.

If you need to have a quick cuppa in the go in between meetings and still pick up a sandwich or a wrap for the family at home this is the place to go

In my book the best cuppucino in Joburg. Woolies might have a shout but that's it. The Dunkeld shop is small and the baristas are annoying but for a take-away coffee I keep going back.

Coffee was tasty and well prepared and atmosphere was nice. Pleasant service. However coffee size is quite small or below average market. Also the cookies were dry and very hard. Probably they do not sell that many so they sit in the counter jar for a while.

We went in here yesterday for a americano and cappuccino. Which arrived in a paper cups, despite ordering it for sit-down. Coffee was average, we did not finish it. The place was filthy, dirt plates on every table. I managed to fid one clean table, I asked for the Manager, and Brian appeared from the back, (where the staff who... More
