I would highly recommend breakfast at the Walnut Grove in Sandton. It is an absolutely amazing experience from the time you walk up (or down) to the restaurant. The ambience is wonderful, decor is beautiful, the food was scrumptious and my favorite part was the aromas that filled the air. Freshly baked croissants and other pastries, cakes being baked and...

The food is always good. Something a bit different from the normal run of the mill restaurant. Although the restaurant is always very busy, the service is always good and the staff are very friendly.

Walnut Grove is in the middle of the passage and you think - why put a restaurant here - I was pleasantly suprised - you walk up a flight of stairs and its really pretty and you are not in the middle but on top of the hustle and bustle. Generally a place to eat cake - we decided not... More

I love the breakfast. Great way to start your Saturday shop. They also make really nice (and big) salads. Meals are presented in a unique way. The cakes look amazing. they have a rainbow one that looks really fun.

I always make a plan to have breakfast or lunch here when we go shopping. Love their food and cakes. Only downfall is that it is inside a mall, and if you are only going for breakfast, you don't want to go all the way in to Sandton City. So now it is reserved only for when we go to... More

Lovely location in Sandton City - for me it's a great venue for breakfast or lunch. Generally a great vibe and always busy. Service on this occasion was disappointing as the service in general is good . The cake display always looks interesting and appetizing. If you in the mall suggest you try it even if it's for an espresso... More

A very nice restaurant in a shopping centre. The decoration is very trendy and beautiful. At the entrance is a table with the most delicious cakes. The food is special, quite different what other restaurants serves.

I always visit Walnut Grove when I am in Sandton. Beautiful restaurant with comfortable couches. Delicious coffee, served with a mini red velvet cupcake. The salted caramel peanut cake is out of this world! Great service

From the mini red velvet cupcake with your coffee to the decadent array of cakes and breads on show. You will fine the yummiest food around. My mom and I come here often, our favorite treat.
