“Nice little cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

I went to Gabriella's shortly after the opening and it was a nice experience : food was good and service friendly. Gabriella was making sure that all the patrons were happy and came to all tables to great her customers.

“Yummy food and friendly owner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

I have eaten at Gabriellas twice and been there plenty times popping in for a coffee, I have been going here for a while and have seen the place change from Redemption to grumpy Baldies and must say Gabriella and her specialised menu brings a refreshing change and taste to the Mainstraim Mall!

“Dark and Dingey”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

A nice corner cafe, good for coffee, but quite dark and unfriendly. Lots of locals smoking outside and the owner stood and talked loudly about the crime in the area while i was trying to eat my breakfast. I wouldn't go back, but its ok if you're stuck for other places.

“Excellent salads at general cafe near Hout Bay shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2011

This cafe may not have the most glamorous location - overlooking a small car park close to Woolworths in the Main Street shopping centre, but the food is generally of a quite a high standard for a place of this type.

The salads in particular are very good and quite substantial.

All of the tables are either inside or generally in the shade, so go else where if you want to sit in the sun.
