Cosy!

Carlton Café is in a popular area and wasn't too busy when we visited. There could have been a better range of items on the menu and the prices were a bit steep. The food was really delicious and we didn't wait long for drinks or food. Presentation and service was good. We were in a bit of a rush... read more

You will not find the standard breakfast at Carlton Cafe Delicious. But maybe it is time to explore and discover other breakfasts. The presentation was perfect and the food was great. The service was excellent. The only problem was that there is only one loo for both male and female. But other than that, I would really recommend exploring their... More

I like the trendy interior of the restaurant. The food was good, but to me it lacked the "wow"-factor that everyone is talking about. Maybe I should try the other dishes to give it a fair chance, so I reserve judgment. The menu is small and interesting. My son had the Oreo cheesecake which is delicious, but my daughter's Blondie...

Constant good service, great quality ingredients. Firm old-time favourites like melkkos alongside modern dishes like tagliatelli with almond pesto, fried squid heads and fresh lemon make for a trustworthy menu. The ginger-chili lemonade has to be one of the only cold non-alcoholic beverages apart from water that I will ever have. Price-wise one rarely feels ripped off here, too.

This is a favorite place to meet friends. The food and presentation is great. The atmosphere is informal and friendly. Lately I find the service to be disappointing. Waiting time is long. The waiters get mixed up and can't seem to fix a problem if something goes wrong. My friend and I ordered a decaf coffees recently and we both... More

The food was great and unusual. The Moroccan beef soup was more like a stew, but delicious. Two of us had qual with an interesting paring of red grapefruit and pistachio nuts. The quail was a tad on the dry side, but still tasty. The haloumi sandwich was also a great lunch dish. The Southern fried chicken looked very appealing,... More

If you are in Pretoria and want delicious food with the warmest service in a sophisticated yet comfortable, casual environment, look no further. There are no nouvelle cuisine portions here. The food, like the hospitality is generous. If you visit regularly you will become part of the family. When I call in during the morning my coffee reaches my table... More

I never quite know where to go for good coffee and free Wifi in the Capital city so it was a pleasant surprise when Tripadvisor brought me here. Good coffee, fast free Wifi, attentive service and the brown salad was excellent. Keep it up guys.

Superb food even though I always find myself ordering the spicy chicken saamie! Perfect for brekkies and lunches or even a condensemilk coffee and cake! Great vibe and fast service.

The food is fresh and unique! I recommend this café to anyone who's looking for a quick bite to eat or a relaxed cup of coffee with a friend. Take aways are also available. The staff is friendly and helpful!
