Living so close to the place makes it easy to end up there, but that is also because it is consistently good. We have been here for lunch, dinner, drinks, a cigar smoke, and just plain chill-out. The food is great and good value for money, especially the mezze offerings. Their pan-fried fish, chicken livers, and desserts are quite tasty... More

Our group of four business colleagues thoroughly enjoyed our lunch in the small garden at Cafe 41. The meat and cheese platter was excellent, as were the sandwiches that were ordered. The coffees were also of a very high standard. This was the fourth or fifth time I have eaten at Cafe 41 and I have yet to be disappointed,... More

Cafe 41, has a convenient location, near the CBD, embassies and universities. If you are looking for good breakfast and lunch this is the place. Prices are reasonable. Try the Greek milktart, that is my favourite.

This is on my route home, so I drop in quite often. There is a good range of Greek-inspired breakfasts, snacks and meals, all served with style, and the coffee - both hot and iced - is excellent. Best of all is perhaps the tea, served in magnificent brass teapots! The standard of everything is consistently high, as it is... More

Had lunch here on a few occasions due to the proximity of where I was working. One day I had the baby chicken with peri peri and the other day I tried the lamb schwa. The baby chicken was tender and moist, but the peri peri was not as spicy as I prefer. The lamb was actually a little dry,... More

From the start the service of all the staff impressed me. With the heaters it was great sitting outside even on a chilly winters evening. Both the drinks and the food arrived very quickly and were very well prepared. The Rib-eye on the bone was delicious. Cannot say the same of the powerbomb peanut and banana smoothie though, that tasted... More
