“Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Friendly staff and management. This restaurant is situated in a mall and offer plenty tables outside so you can soak up the sun should you wish to do so. The fast, efficient service and excellent food made sure that I returned a few times before leaving Ballito.

“good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Their food is delicious and their portions generous, if you going to eat there consider sharing some dishes as they are really too much for one. Good friendly service too

“Best cafe in KZN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

You will find no better than this in the entire province of KZN.

The food is exceptional, the service is equally so. Go here for guaranteed satisfaction. After 12 visits I can honestly say that I have been impressed every time.
Great cappuccinos. Incredible breakfasts and lunches. Personalised service. Great atmosphere and warm interior.

Try the lambo!

“Where do people eat in Ballito?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Looking for breakfast with a view, in an attractive café or restaurant, a friend and I drove in and around Ballito, up and down the coast, for what felt like hours without coming upon anywhere that looked half-way decent. We finally gave up and settled for the Ballito Junction centre where Zara's seemed the best option - a spacious and sunny outdoor area, packed with punters. After our long search we were hungry when we got there and starving 45 minutes later when our breakfast finally arrived at the table. The food was fine but the wait (with no communication and no apology) was unacceptable.
