Nice and cozy cafe. Mixed people. They had live music when I went there with friends. We danced and had a good time. Just be careful, my frinds purse got stolen there.

I had lunch at Cafe Mojito on Friday and was pleasantly surprised by my paleo type order being so delicious! I had their chicken salad, and the chicken breast was perfect and the salad itself great. And the mojito's was pretty great too!

Last Sunday we went to Mojito's to breakfast. It was very tasty and I was really attached of the Music they played. It was a mix of Oldies like Haddaway or "Africa" by Toto. So we came back at night to have a drink and then we saw the Jukebox. For R2 you can play your own music and it... More

Went there twice for cocktails; great atmosphere,not too loud but fun. Cocktails were only R28 (£1.70!) each, and were really good - didn't skimp on quality or quantity!

Had two meals at Cafe Mojito while in Cape Town. The highest marks from our group of 4 came from the Fish and Chips and the Burgers. The Mojitos are outstanding. The spinach and feta rolled bread is excellent. Great prices, great friendly service, and great funky vibe. Got to watch a reggae band there while we enjoyed our meal.... More

I've been here many times and keep coming back. I love their awesome cozy vibe and friendly service. Cafe Mojito is a place for every occasion... from breakfast outside in the sun on a Sunday morning to cocktails and tasty tapas (try their delicious spicy Nachos!) with a group of friends in the evening. It is also a good place... More

We came here for an evening after finding out the had live music on Thursdays and really enjoyed ourselves. About 7 tables inside and 3-4 outside make this a cozy place, full of Che Guevara. Solid Mojito for 48 rand and chips and dip for about the same. If we lived here we'd probably be here monthly at least.

The place, the staff, the live music, the crowd and the vibe - sums up this quaint drinking hole in the centre of Long Street. We spent our last 5 evenings in Cape Town at this place. Goes to show how much we loved it. The live band is entertaining, the tapas are delicious and the rates absolutely affordable -... More
