An oasis at the V&A

This very small but ideally located restaurant is a favourite. It is completely glass enclosed on the top level on the V&A Waterfront, inside the shopping area and offers good quality food. Ideal place to drop in for a quick cup of coffee and a bite to eat during your day out the Waterfront. Note... read more

I was first introduced to Myatts on a visit to Cape Town a few years ago and based on the excellent service and food options, we decided to visit once again. The first visit we were told that they had an electricity problem and they would not be able to serve us at all (not even pre-made desserts??) The second... More

We were introduced to this cafe by a friend of ours who happened to know the owner personally. The ambience of the cafe is very good. we visited it on few occasions and found the coffee, teas and menus very good. The restaurant definitely lacks owner's supervision. We went to the restaurant at just after 9pm. Even though there were... More

Very bad service and I ordered a scone which was brought so absolutely hard and falling apart with cheese that I ordered extra for R12 which was fine until you see that they LIE to you on the menu. On the menu they say "ementhaler cheese" and i ordered that.... More

My husband and I had coffee at Myatt this morning for the first time My latte was watery and bitter and not improved by extra milk. My husband found his OK, the cup cake was good. We ordered chocolates to be packed as a gift This took an inordinate amount of time so we hope they are worth it. Loads... More

This is a favorite for great coffees, lovely teas, decadent sandwhiches, cakes and pastries. I love stopping here for a treat mid-shopping trip! Its an inexpensive place to stop and relax. iTs generally not very loud, but its still abuzz with conversation.
