The only problem you will ever have here is what to choose. All the cakes and meals are delicious. The tiramisu and chocolate mousse cake are my favourites.

This place has never disappointed me with their variety of offerings. They definitely are a class above some bakeries and coffee shops. Just looking at some of their cakes make your mouth water.

Popped in for breakfast. I ordered a Latte and the grilled croissant with gypsey ham and cheese.The cheese was abit much but cheese fanatics would love it. Service was fine but the atmosphere was indifferent. Couldnt resist a pretty cake which I saw in the display. They boxed it up in a pretty pink and gold box.

Indifferent service at best! The good service option was more interested in repacking the biscuits. To top it off, pricey for something that was average. I have been here before and not been overly impressed but never again.

Limnos is a Cape Town staple with some of the most lovely and pretty cakes around. Slightly pricey, but great for an afternoon tea and cake.

Their food is always good. It is generous portions, and the vegetables and side salads are always fresh and taste. I always visit them when I am close by.

Amazing desserts, cakes and pastries. Can be expensive, however, a lot of attention to detail and quality ingredients. No bakery compares to this bakery. They are in a class of their own. Well done, Limnos!

Don't be fooled by the looks of the cakes and tarts, they all have the same artificial taste. Staff very unfriendly, and prices seem to change on a daily basis. Only thing they are good for is a cup of take away coffee in the morning.
