My wife and I decided to start off our leave by having lunch at this café. Big mistake. Firstly upon walking in 2 waitresses walked past us and completely ignored us. So we spent 3 or 4 minutes doing that dance where you try to get someone's attention but to our dismay absolutely no one would help us, which I... More

We had a yummy cuppaccino with a red velvet cupcake and carrot cake! The carrot cake was incredible, the cupcake unfortunately did not taste like REAL red velvet, but nonetheless it was very tasty! The service was alright, we had asked for waters and she had forgotten, otherwise she was very friendly! Very nice atmosphere with the old music and... More

Gorgonzola and Fig muffin was my choice to accompany my coffee and a fine choice it was too. The coffee was good. Service was attentive. This is a quaint coffee shop with an interesting menu. I will definitely be back :)

We stopped by here on our way out of town, drawn by the temptation of chocolate cinnamon buns smothered in warm custard. A bit overwhelming, even for those who are sugar and chocolate freaks. Three members of our party each ordered their own - big mistake. One could easily be split between 2-3 people. It was good, but not quite... More

Finish off with what has to be the best hot chocolate in SA and its another great food and service experience, thanks to Areola... More

Our friends took us to Cinnamon & Silk because she displays some of her hand crafted jewelry in the shop/cafe. But the coffee afficianados among us loved the coffee as much as the shopping. The cup sized cheesecake was more than filling for a mid-morning tea. Just hated I did not get to try the cup sized lemon meringue pie.... More

Their cappuccinos are best in Ballito, small but delicious and their cakes and scones great, sandwiches ok, rather opt for cappuccinos and carrot cake and while you there purchase one of their gorgeous smelling candles
