My girlfriend brought me here for the first time and I am itching to come back, All I can say is Eggs Benedict on a potato toasty and my day is made. We always sit on the far left so we can see the mountain and enjoy the breeze of the open window.

It was wonderful to catch up with friends for breakfast at this cafe. It was busy when we arrived but we were accommodated and spent a lovely morning here. Definitely recommend for anyone looking for something fresh served with a smile :)

I recently visited Liquorice & Lime with a friend. Being it noon on a Sunday, all the tables were taken but we managed to be seated in 5 minutes. We simply ordered a coffee and my companion had a fruit salad which came abundant and tasted fresh and tasty. We decided to leave soon because we were looking for a... More

After a late night flight into Cape Town the breakfast here was just what we needed. Food and atmosphere is great and the staff are very polite. Will most likely be back here tomorrow 😀

The wraps and burgers are wonderful!So are the juices. The only "negative" aspect is that sometimes fastness is not their strong point. But..if you're not in a hurry...you will love this place!😀

After a wonderful hike, I visited Liquorice & Lime with some friends. It was a truly joyous experience! Their decor is on the quirky side - it may hurt your eyes if you look at it for too long. However, it is fun and something else! Their food is delicious and their coffee is good, good! Their staff is friendly... More

Liquorice and Lime breakfasts are always great but their Eggs Benedict is something really SPECIAL!!! I challenge you to find another restaurant that can beat theirs! The sauce is perfect every time and rich and creamy and decadent 😀 The restaurant is on the small side so make sure you go early to get a table! Their counter by the... More
