I always make sure to visit Myatt Cafe when I am in Cape Town. I love the menu and the variety it offers. Service can be a little slow at times but I will overlook it since the quality of the food and drinks is always good

staff are friendly, service is efficient, coffee if good but the crockery is beautiful. It's an event in itself just to sit back for a while and enjoy a lovely coffee in very pleasant surroundings served by lovely staff but the best thing of all is the china everything is served on. Truly gorgeous.

The cakes look really amazing and tastes good too but the staff really spoilt my entire experience. Not value for money.

The food served was substandard , specific orders where mixed up. The staff lacked friendliness. Nichol was particularly rude to my friends and I. You have lost the confidence of not just 1customer but... More

We didn't like the service attendance at all. We had to a long time to be attended. We only order drinks. The food didn't look that appealing.
