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

I went there for my Boyfriends birthday. Such a beautiful coffee shop. Cake was amazing. Been there a few times for coffee and cake. I haven't eaten a proper meal there but my mother who has, loves the food.

I actually prefer different kinds of green tea and this was the place which served the best options. I loved the Ou-long but next time I came they took it off the menu. I was disappointed but they offered something nice instead which I enjoyed as well. It is just so much nicer as a lunch option than all the... More

Try their signature burger, it's delicious! The restaurant is a bit expensive, but worth it. Beautiful decor, good service.

I have eaten here several times and on each occasion the service was excellent, the quality of food was perfect. I once left my wallet and cellphone at this place for 2 days, the staff nor management stole anything form it...I had about R2000 in there. Highly recommended.

The bakery and desserts look extremely appetizing and the atmosphere created is cute unique and friendly. However there is one small detail that is lacking - the food. The food is very basic and is rarely executed well.

This multi-level eatery in the middle of Sandton City Shopping Mall is a great place to stop and have lunch whilst doing your shopping. They have loads of choices, from salads, to sandwiches, to burgers and more and I have always found the food to be fresh. Service is also attentive and timely. I would also highly recommend the ridiculously... More
