“absolutely perfect!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Had the most amazing lunch at Starlings - the tart of the day was divine and the lentil salad was great too. The orange angel food cake was outstanding.
Healthy and top quality choice!
Starlings is absolutely charming with antique lamps, mismatch chairs and blue irises filling the bathroom. Definitely a wonderful lunch choice

“Great start to the day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Charming staff, delicious selection of breakfasts, the best coffee, lovely decor and music to set you on your way. Nothing like an owner-managed place to get the best service and value for money. Plus, the clientele are delightful. That tells a story ...

“Coffee with friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

A lovely cosy place to chat with your girl friends. Delicious cake and fantastic coffee. Garden area makes a chance chance from indoors, but only in the summer.

“COSY, CUTE AND SCRUMPTOUS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Tucked away, behind a hedge, along Belvedere Road Claremont Cape Town, you will find Starlings, a perfect light lunch venue. This converted cottage welcomes you with the most mouth watering aromas from the open plan kitchen. Look around the two rooms or make your way to the enclosed patio or secluded garden to find your mismatched chair and GRAB IT! A friendly waiter will be along to give you a menu and introduce you to the days specials. The low chatter, almost discrete buzz creates the kind of atmosphere to match the subtle flavors you are about to savor. Enjoy
