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.

This is your go to bakery, the cakes are to die for, but tend to be on the steep side. They have a Delicious tiramisu cake to mention but one.

These cakes look delightful, that is until you taste it. Always seems to be a disapointment for me, except for the toasted sandwiches. They do a great deal for a cheese and tomato sandwich and tea/coffee before 12 noon for under R30.

I have been eating at this establishment for the past 10 years and find it be delightful with a wide range of food to choose from. I especially like the baked products from the bakery and often go there for desert or coffee business meetings.

What a pleasure to return here recently, and discover that their coffee is still so good! Wonderful beans, wonderful cappa, WONDERFUL cakes - all served by very pleasant & well-informed staff. I'd have a problem recommending a "favourite" cake as everytime I try something different it becomes a new favourite! I absolutley LOVE their custard slices, and so look forward... More

I found limnos was lovely to look at, but the cake was disappointing. I ordered their red velvet cake and a few macaroons. On the whole their cake seems to be visually appealing but the taste doesn't match up. Their macaroons have an artificial, almost "mix a drink" flavour
