The menu is slightly quirky, slightly different, but not so much as to take you totally out of your usual comfort zone. Even early on a cold Monday morning, the place was buzzing. Service was good. And there's wi-fi. A comfortable yet innovative kind of place one wants to visit regularly.

Carlton Café Delicious is unassuming but clean and stylish with delicious food... it's all about balance of flavours, simple food and yet, it's all well thought out, intelligent combinations that really entertains your tastebuds. What more do you want when you sit down for a good meal?

My husband and I had breakfast on a Saturday morning in February at this very popular cafe. We had to a few minutes for a table. The cafe is next door to a ever so popular Saturday morning market, the Hazelwood market so it is very busy in the area. The food is excellent. We had the savoury french toast... More

Great coffee, friendly service, best eggs benedict and floretine in Gauteng. Lovely Saturday morning breakfast and take away coffee after an early morning workout. Never disappoints!!

Although some of my fellow customers' dishes looked impressive, mine was barely edible. I ordered a toasted sandwich because the flavour combinations looked interesting. I had so send it back as the bread was burnt and rock hard. The second time around wasn't much better. I received black bread again! If you do decide to visit, just stay away from... More

A perfect place to meet your friends for breakfast, brunch or lunch. The quality of the food is superb and a stylish presentation. It has an extensive menu. The scrumptious cakes and pastries are worth trying. They serve great coffee. It is always very busy, it is best to make a reservation. They also have freshly baked bread. A great... More

Came across this little restaurant unexpectedly. I was impressed by the menu and quality of food. Every element on the menu was creative and inspiring and had been thoughtfully put together. From the ginger beer with chilli flakes to the lamb spring rolls on puree aubergine and mint. I will definitely make a stop by Cafe Delicious. The only thing... More

Nice! With a bit of spice. Fancy food, different but unique presentation and lots of attention, allows one to negotiate a tad longer. Great experience & the best coffee in Pretoria are two of many reasons why one keeps on returning to this little gem. Brian must be one of the most experienced & friendliest waiters in Pretoria.

This is the kind of place where you need to keep coming back so that you can eat your way through the menu. There are so many truly delicious options that it's hard to pick a favourite. At it's old location, good service used to be conspicuously absent, but this has improved dramatically. It's very busy so I advise arriving... More
