“Good food tastes bad when served with terrible service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Great trendy location, inside the Woodstock Foundry. Great decor and food was ok. Waiter specifically asked how the poached eggs should be, we answered Soft. They came out really over cooked. Now normally this would not bother me at all, as long as the flavor's were present, which they were. The bad taste came from a total lack of service from the waiter. When we were seated we ordered a fresh squeezed orange juice. They had no stock, so we ordered a bottle of naartjie juice. 3 requests later and after breakfast was done and the table was cleared, the juice arrived. The bill took 2 requests and 15 minuets to arrive. Would be a great spot but this shocking service spoiled the experience. Won't be ack in a hurry.

“Best breakfast in Cape Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Superette's eggs and soldiers remind me of when I was young! So tasty. Cappuccino's are great, as well as the poached eggs too- great breakfast place in a beautiful, trendy setting. Close to the biscuit mill, and lower Woodstock if you want to shop Homeware. Service is great, and no need to book.

“A great breakfast spot in woodstock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

I have just written a review about another breakfast spot and it reminded me of a great breakfast we had in Woodstock recently... Fresh bread, well cooked in ingredients... Great combination of flavours... Service was efficient and friendly... It was pumping and food took around twenty mins to arrive...

Best breakfast we have had in 2013..... Decor was very funky... Well done!

“Wonderful space”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

don't get there late I discovered cause you'll miss the very popular salad choices. Easy menu, chill space, good to be there. The sort of place I can go to often for a light lunch. I love the shops around the node. Parking is a problem

“Great Casual Eating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Terrific atmosphere in the Woodstock Exchange. Light eating with a great variety to choose from. Price points are very agreable, easy place to meet friends in a convivial atmosphere.
