Good service

Excellent service with really good coffee. large selection to choose from. Baklava is one of the best i have had. They are a bit pricey.

Limnos Claremont branch review (because it does not have its own TripAdvisor listing - why not?): Very mediocre meal. Extremely oversalted chicken pancakes. Bland steak. Okay service - friendly in general but unenthusiastic and slipping on small things (having to ask more than once etc). Would skip this as option for lunch next time.

The service was shocking and our tables food arrived 10min apart. Good sweet treats but nothing else was memorable. Will not return

The service is disgustingly poor! Staff have no way of handling paying customers and act as if they are doing you a favour....and I've tested the responses - equally disgusting no matter which store you go to (Bellville&Kuilsriver by far the worst though)!! I used to sing Limnos praises but that has stopped and I have visited for teh last... More

I visited the Canal Walk branch and found that the lady helping me was really helpful and friendly, especially with her suggestions as to what to try out. The macaroons were the standout. They were divine. I would love to go back

What a treat to go to Limno's... any Limno's branch is great. The food is super. We often go for breakfast, but enjoy a lunch as well. They have healthy options as well as treats. Don't go to the Somerset West branch though. The staff are grumpy, the manageress is difficult and rude, they seldom get the order right and... More

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.
