As always great ambience and set up. Cakes on display looked scrumptious. Although we popped in late we were warmly greeted and served by a lovely waiter. The place was quite full and vibey I still really love that they give you a mini red velvet cupcakes with your coffee

I attended a course in Johannesburg that only finished after 19:00 on a Sunday. We looked for a restaurant that was open in Sandton City. Walnut Grove was still open so we decided to eat there. The menu is varied and the service was very good. The food was tasty and freshly prepared.

The restaurant stretches way off to the one side, above the food court area of Sandton City, we were seated on the far end which is a bit strange as there is an industrial cooker extractor fan half sticking out of the wall which is not very attractive. The iced coffee, served in a jar was excellent. Service was a... More

Inside Sandton City, there is a coffee shop which doubles as a small eatery. The food is okay, but the coffee and cakes are really good. Comfortable chairs and relaxing music enables the tired shopper to rest a while on this mezzanine- level establishment. Good for the on-the-go patron.

Really enjoyed my meal at this restaurant. I was here once before and it was just as goof as I remember. The staff were very attentive and although I took a while before ordering the food still came in LEDs than 15 min. Overall- very good!

The restaurant oozes class and elegance. We ordered the African Nachos and they were to die for. Hands down, best I've had in my life. We liked it so much that my sister went home and even replicated it. You can't leave without having some rainbow cake! Deeeelish. And they serve their hot drinks in the cutest way- forget biscotti.... More
