Great for lunch or brunch. Good food with good service. Pity they don't cover the cakes though but then again a lot of places in South Africa don't cover their food. Seems a little unhygienic.

We always visit the Walnut Grove whenever we visit Sandton City. The ambiance is hip and fun. The food is always great and the service is 5 star. However the signature treat of this restaurant is definitely the rainbow cake. It fast becomes an addiction.

My wife and I regularly have a weekend breakfast at the Walnut Grove. We are drawn back as this is one of the few restaurants offering a breakfast prepared by a good chef that knows what she is doing. Their selection of fresh breads, croissants,...More
