Unfortunately Europa is not one of the better establishments. Awful coffee. Mediocre food. Would be better to replace it with a Mugg & Bean.

Good cup of coffee. Average fare. Staff and service somewhat below par. They do offer free wifi. Situated in the middle of noisy mall walking area.

Cafe Europa is one of the better places in Bedford Centre to get a quick meal. The Fish and Chips was very good and my wife's wrap was also very good. A bit noisey but very good food and service

There are many Europa franchises in Johannesburg, and I have had good service at most of them, but the one in Village Walk was appaling. The service was atroscious, the food was raw chicken (I didn't eat it) and they got my order wrong twice! This is certainly the worst restaurant experience I have had in Johannesburg. I would not...
