Good restaurant in Sandton City. Too many options in the menu, from salads to pasta, pizza and burgers. I had the 3 mini-burgers which was good but disappointing at the same time as they're supposed to taste differently to each other (3 different sauces) but all of them had some sort of vinaigrette that took over the taste of the...

Just amazing! So many healthy choices: delicious salads (Casablanca salad was such a treat). For real men, they have burgers with the size of a mountain. And fabulous cakes! Such a variety! Do not miss this fantastic place!

This is a great kind of mixed coffee shop/casual restaurant. We were in Johannesburg on holiday and shopping at Sandton City, with Mandela Square closed we visited here a lot.
