We had a wonderful late Sunday afternoon at Limnos while completing work on our laptops. There is (expensive) paid parking just outside and it was fairly quiet and peaceful. The coffee was good and there is a wide selection of delicious pastries, macaroons, cakes, biscuits and breads. The milk tart and lemon meringue is particularly good.

Some of the best baked products available in SA, as far as I am concerned. Baked cheesecake is very good and so are the other confectioneries we tried. Go hungry!

Visited the branch at Canal Walk Loads of yummy goodies on offer. The macroons ... Totally awesome & A must try .... Crispy outside and soft n chewy on the inside. The are quite larger than the regular ones one would buy. Go on and get 1 of each flavor!

We ate breakfast here, as it was close to our Protea hotel. We went late on a Sunday morning, and I was shocked we were the only patrons when we got there. We each ordered a typical meal with omelettes or eggs, meat and toast. The food was all freshly prepared and service was very prompt. I am glad they... More

Don't visit if you are dieting. The delicious cakes and wonderful cupcakes are difficult to resist. An excellent stop over for a light meal, of a sinful afternoon of high tea.

in terms of selection, impressive. but in term of substance, ingredient quality (free range/ sugar free, organic (????)) not in line with when we know about food today. coffee unspectacular.

Cakes... Cakes... Cakes... Everywhere!!! I'm spoilt for choice here in this bakery @limnos in Claremont! While I've been in Cape Town this past month, I've been sampling the gastronomical delights of this coffee restaurant stores and totally impressed with the quality and standard of the cakes and dessert decadence. This store in Claremont has a clean, fresh, light and airy... More

Review for the Stellenbosch outlet (in Eikestad Mall): I regularly meet colleagues and friends here, as one can have a nice conversation without too much noise. The cakes and biscuits look beautiful, but they don't taste as nice as they appear. The service is consistently terrible (read: non-existent). Every. Single. Time. I have to get up and remind the waiter... More

Visited the outlet in Canal Walk. Cakes were normal. Nothing out of the ordinary. Service was poor. Even though we sat down, we had to repeatedly go up to the counter to request stuff. Ladies behind the counter were very helpful. If the waitress was more accessible we would have tried more cakes. Left disappointed
