“Three times a week addict when in Pretoria!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

My colleague and I love this place (well he more than I haha)! The atmosphere is nice, the food is delicious, and there is quite a variety! Plus the staff is friendly and helpful and the wine list is extensive. Now, my absolute favorite thing to have when in South Africa is a Dom Pedro (vanilla bean milkshake made with whiskey .. or in my case, Stroh rum) and they make the second best Dom Pedro in all of Pretoria! All in all a MUST experience place to dine!

“Diverse menu with nice South African touches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2010

After coming in from small rural settings this was a delight for our traveling group. We were met with the smell of basil so 3 folks enjoyed pasta dishes. They had no problem splitting orders. Ostrich medallions were tender and the mussels light. Enjoyed SA wines and the white was set to chill in ice. The kids had milk shakes they made a fresh pot of decaf coffee for our table. The tea pot was a larger metal one which is nice since so many places have the wee ceramic pots where you need to ask for extra hot water just to enjoy tea. We had a group of 12 and the menu gave enough choices for the group. Arthur gave us excellent service but didn't hover. Parking lot available at Eastwood location.

“Best milkshakes in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2010

I have been living in Pretoria for almost three years, and one think I loved most in Pretoria was the Café 41.

You MUST try the Couscous Salat, the delicious bagels and the scrummy milkshakes (my favourite one was the youngberry milkshake). Service is friendly and easy-going. I loved to sit in the inner yard of the café, which is designed very beatiful and relaxing with bamboo, palms and a small fountain.

The Café 41 is visited by a quite international public, which makes it nice to talk to each other. The area is relatively secure, and the parking spaces in front of the café are guarded.

best time to visit: Saturday mornings for a nice breakfast.

“A nice change from the usual international hotel fayre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2009

Had a pleasant evening meal on the outside terrace. The menu list is very international with some pleasant south african touches. Drinks and cocktails are well priced. Very good value for money with a friendly service to match
