“I have died and gone to Heaven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Ahh, cakes, cupcakes, tarts, the best coffee, a funky interior. Pink, black & white - really cool. Great place for a Sunday brunch, anytime tea or lunch and even cocktails.The menu is extensive and a work of art in itself. The food actually sounds good and is good. Lip-smacking good. The service is good.

“cake-lover's heaven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

A truly unique experience. The lunch buffet, menu and even cocktails are completely different to the norm yet the combinations are usually delicious!
The red-velvet cupcakes/cakes are to die for!

“Cakes to die for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

The one in Groenkloof and the one at Waterkloof are both having a great selection of cake and food can be weighed for lunch as you can choose from the buffet of the day. Good service at both branches. This place has it's name after the owners adorable daughter Isabella.

“Great offering, service should improve”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We visit Isabella's regularly. The scones, muffins, cake and quich are absolutely delicious. My children's favourite is the lamb open sandwich. The training of the personnel could be improved. If I ask what muffins do you have today?, they should know. Was disappointed the other day, the day after the Christmas, ordered carrot and banana muffins (that was after the waitress had to check what muffuns are available), waitress came back, no carrot or banana muffins. My husband had the bran muffin and I settled for the quich. Both delicious, as always.

“Best cake place in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Isabella's is my ultimate favorite in Pretoria when it comes to having cake and coffee, but their lunch buffet and their a la carte salads are also heaven for those who love veggies. Very popular, so best to reserve a table...
