Great decor and atmosphere and the service was good. Also one of the few places opened late that serve good coffee and desserts.

Love the coffee and cake. It's always difficult to decide what to eat. Love the cakes. I love the Stack breakfast. Price is good too. Must try next time the cup cakes. Well done guys. Keep it up.

This is a fab spot for a lunch with a friend. The wraps are fresh and crispy and full of flavor! I love the little red velvet cupcakes that are served with your hot drinks! The cakes are masterpieces and will make you want to try all of them.

Been to Walnut Grove several times over the last few months and service has been deteriorating. Slower service. Waiters are out of view for long periods of time. Need to flag someone down to order drinks and meals. Meals and drinks take a very long to be served. Waiters seem uninterested in service. Food is good but service is poor.

This has always been one my favorite breakfast haunts, but I popped in last week for a quick sandwich & coffee on the go, it was fresh, flavorful & crispy, coffee was great (as always)!

to start off with the service was good and then i have no idea what happened... we ordered a sandwich and a pizza, when the manager brought the food to us after a long wait asked us if we would like to order anything else and we ordered an orange juice, our food was eaten and 10-15 minutes later no...

I was here on Saturday with my sister in law and her two teenage daughters. We needed a little break after shopping- what a pity that we only stopped for coffee and cake- the food looked delicious! We ordered cupcakes and a custard slice, along with drinks. The cake portions are huge; so it's totally worth paying 45rand a piece.... More

27 years ago I was at the Walnut Grove for the first time, a friend showed it to me. Many, many visits later albeit with some time gaps in between it is still my one and only coffee shop / restaurant in Sandton that I enjoy going to. Be it with the family or with international visitors or colleagues, there... More
