Really good food

Very nice, quiet restaurant. The service is very good. Their food menu is delicious. If you are looking for a quality restaurant with quality food, and with prices that are mid-range, then this is it.

A big come down. My French toast was like rubber, dry and harsh, with a petite bowl of syrup. Totally overcooked with littke cheese. They can also send their barista for extra cuppucino-making lessons.

The setting of this establishment is nice, capturing the urban feel with a touch of the outdoors under the trees. Pity that the food doesn't come to the party... The coffee is mediocre and had a very distinctive burnt after taste. We ordered croissants and when the food arrived - disaster. The limp, deflated pastry on the plate resembled a... More

We've had a few business meetings here. The place draws a crowd that is a bit more international due to the emabassies that are close by

If you are looking for a venue for a pleasant, easygoing chat to friends, Cafe 41 presents you with many small treats that will keep the conversation going for a long time. I particularly like their peppermint tea and Turkish Delight (Rahat Loukoum)

This cafe is an ideal spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner. There are pleasantly situated tables in 2 outdoor areas and the menu is interesting if a little complicated. The fish is generally pretty good and I'm told so is the pasta. Or you can have yoghurt, honey and nuts or just tea or coffee. It's all good quality and... More

Located in a shopping centre across the road from the US embassy and in the embassy district of Pretoria, Cafe 41 is a nice restaurant with a good choice of both food and drinks on the menu. It was busy the night I went but they were able to seat me without a reservation but I was lucky I think.... More
