Sunette is one of the greatest South African chefs in the state. Her soups and salads are the best. Be sure to stop by when you are in town.

Great range of food and drink options from around the world, we loved this place. Tucked down off main street its worth seeking out.

My mom had read excellent reviews about karoo kafe so we went here for lunch on our visit to p town. I got samosas and the falafel. This was the first time I had tried a falafel and it was to die for. I've tried falafels around where I live (in CT) and I have just been disappointed. I've actually... More

Had always wanted to eat there because their menu intrigued me. Orded the Curried Slaw and a side order of 3 pumpkin kibbys. The salad was good and fresh, a crunchy combination of chopped cabbage, apples, raisins, carrots with a spicy dressing. The Pumpkin Kibby is one of my favorite Middle Eastern appetizers / snack foods. I was very disappointed.... More

On an uncharacteristically cold and damp day (at least for our stay in Provincetown), we found the aromas at Karoo Kafe warm and inviting. We enjoyed the veggie combo platter, Cape Malay Stew (with shrimp) and Peri-Peri shrimp. The subtle yet complicated blending of spices made each bite enjoyable, all at a price that is low by Provincetown standards (most... More

Small cafe, serves 'global cuisine". This spot is billed as having S African cuisine but it's more African/Indian fusion. This means, you can try some adventurous foods that your American palate will recognize. Offers vegan, vegetarian and gluten free meals.

Cute, casual place. Flavors are spot on Indian/African. They do some twists with some of their menu items that are unexpected that it would be helpful if described on menu (ie. kibbe is deep fried and the size of a siver dollar, and this weekend was actually pumpkin kibbe not lamb or ground beef as expected. We had ordered the... More

Loved this place! It was a nice change of scene for those with adventurous taste buds - although, I am pretty sure anyone could find something good to eat on their menu. Great wine and beer selection too and they sell their sauces!

Nice little cafe with an eclectic menu. Not cheap but nothing in Ptown. Reccomend the bunny chow and iced tea
