Dropped by after work for a late lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Had the beef goulash which pleasantly spiced. The offers on craft beers was nice and enjoyed a tall jack black. All in all a pleasant place for a quick meal.

You can't go wrong with Hello Sailor In Observatory Cape Town for good food at good prices. We had cheeseburgers with chips which were delicious while we watched the funky people of Obz make their way down Lower Main Road. Very chilled.
