Limnos is part of my posse

Our offices are located right next door to the bakery in Greenpoint. Its with great enthusiasm and honor that i hereby bestow the honor of my staple supplier of baked goods and ah-may-zing coffee to you.

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.

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.
