This restaurant has been in existence for over 20 years. I have been there for lunch and cake for many years and will recommend it. They offer mini red velvet cupcakes which are delicious. I go back time and time again.

Hidden from view in the bustling mall, this spacious restaurant is located on its own mezzanine level. It is intimate enough for a date night, but also offer couches for catching up with friends. The food is in one word -superb! You will not be able to find better quality meals with the same generous portion sizes at the same... More

With a prime location in the centre of the busy thoroughfare in Sandton City, this lovely restaurant offers a good range of dishes. The menu has good vegetarian options for breakfast and entrees. Watch the pastry chefs ice fresh cakes as you sip your coffee. You are welcome to have a quick snack or a full meal. Prices are good... More

I really love their cakes- especially the red velvet. It's a wonderful place to visit with family. I look forward to going there again!

In between the floors the nicest coffee and cake in sandton shopping center. After every 2 hours of shopping, an hour to relax with a cold drink or a coffee, and quick snacks. Lunch there was good as well as affordable.

What a wonderful place to find right in the middle of bustling shopping centre. The good: - The decor is really beautiful, it feels very classy and like it would fit right in, in a five star hotel. - Great ambiance, you actually forget that you are sitting in a shopping mall, because of how the restaurant is tucked in....

My wife and I were in Sandton and felt like dessert. We decided to try this place as it seemed to have a great ambiance. As entered Jabu (one of the managers) eagerly approached us to welcome us, help us with the pram and find us a place to seat. From there things went downhill, our waiter was unfriendly, my... More

Just bear in mind this is in the middle of a shopping Mall, so maybe best for daytime eating. The coffee area is up in the Mall, and the restaurant is on a mezzanine level. A colleague of mine took us for lunch here last week; my thai beef salad was good, with noodles not overcooked, beef char grilled, and... More

I used to come here with my family all the time. They had nice cakes and coffee. They are on the decline in terms of service though. I gave it a shot 2 more times after I was disappointed by the service but now I feel it's just not worth it. Whether it's busy or not they will take at... More
