“Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

Cafe Jiran at North Beach-Durban stands out as one of the best restaurants when it comes to service. I had such a lovely time at Cafe Jiran, Mumsy gave me such excellent service, team work is as amazing, waitresses such as Zukiswa were as much helpful. A tip will never be enough to such happy souls brightening our days. Thank you, Cafe Jiran waiters and waitresses rock!!

“great location, very good breakfast, good cappuccino”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

have been several times, never disappointed . just one remark. if one sits inside as we often do, the noise from the hotel reception should be monitored and the last time the hoover was being used to clean the floor so we could not talk and we had to get up and ask to stop

“Cake coffee and breakfasts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

We remembered their cake and coffee from a couple of years ago - it was worth going back for! We also tried their breakfasts. OK, but Eggs Benedict a bit disappointing - sauce a bit strange. Also they served one member of party a drink she hadn't ordered. (It looked the same, but from the taste was not correct - they replaced it with the correct one without any problem)

“Wonderful Beach Walk followed by an amazing Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

We went for a walk on the beach front with our puppy and decided to have dinner at Café Jiran.
It was such a lovely evening and Therry our waiter was amazing he really looked after us and Bastian our puppy he bought a bowl of water and treats ( we only took the water :) )

We had some drinks and a wonderful meal the food was great friends had the Prawn wrap and I had the beef burger Yum!

Could not fit coffee in as the portion was large :) and tasty :)

Well done Guys!!!

“Great cappuccino and great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

We tried the place after my wife heard great things about their cappuccino. We were not disappointed. One of the best cappuccino I have had. We also tried the cheese cake, chocolate cake and carrot cake. It was good but not great. I have to say the service was excellent.
