Having a sit and had a cup of coffee in your restuarant makes me as a youth to feel like lm out of the country, to the boys let them keep a wonderful job it seems they dont feel like at work they feel at home. from Sisa Donklan at Lathitha Peoples Housing Development.

Let's just keep perspective here. Caffe Hausbrandt is a wonderful little place, with friendly staff serving good coffee. But it's tiny, and you're hardly going to be served a 'top ten in Cape Town meal' here. I have lived in Cape Town all my life and work in the CBD, and eat out almost every working day of my life....

Thank for your feedback. I agree with you, a coffee shop should not be in the same rubric as the top Restaurants. It is a pity that there is no separate category for coffee shops. When you read our reviews, it is mostly for the coffee, Gelato and homemade Austrian Cakes as well as our funny waiters and the atmosphere... More

They make an excellent cappuccino. The stuff signs it with an grandious picture in the milk. Never seen such fine composed surface on a cappuccino.

We read about the Hausbrandt Espresso Bar and were anxious to try the "best gelato". It definitely lives up to its reputation. We tried probably every flavor available, including Cheese Cake Cherry, Cookies, Hazelnut and even some of the refreshing sorbets, like Raspberry and Passionfruit. A treat for your palate! Sitting on the Terrace enjoying the funny and friendly waiters... More

This South African Winter that came up with temperatures of 25 degrees and more instead of 10 to 15 made us enjoy the vibe of the beautiful Caffe Hausbrandt. The service was always very good, coffee and icecream delicious.

Fantastic cafe to enjoy good food whilst soaking up the atmosphere of Green Market Square. The ice cream is seriously good which is served to you by attentive staff. Allin all a most enjoyable experience. Thank you Caffe Hausbrandt.

Relax, enjoy good coffee in a friendly atmosphere while watching Greenmarket Square bustling with activity. You can observe the whole diverse range of the different people of Cape Town without leaving your chair. Don't forget to tip "Joe the Busker".He has been singing and playing his drum there for more then 10 years now, providing the perfect soundtrack.
