This is a locale hangout which is nice but it isn't really anything to write home about. The cocktail I got was good, but very sugary vs sour making it a tad imbalanced. The salad I got was good, very plain, but was at least fresh.

I acctually had a breakfast in this place, so no cocktails were consumed. breakfast had original offers, different from the boring routine. breakfast is served all day, which is good if you just woke up there from last night's hangover. central;y located in long st., and in walking distance to green market sq. and other CBD attractions.

I have met and made many friends as we sit outside sipping on one of their signature cocktails watching the sun go down.I would recommend everyone to come by to this little Havanna in... More

Love this place. Patrick and the gang are super kool. They made me feel very welcome. Loved the talks we had about Cape Town and other countries in Africa and the politics of it all. Eric Comba was there performing and he was amazing. Can't wait to hang out with the crew again. Thank You! Keith from the USA

We came here for the happy hour. Surprisingly there are no Mojitos available for it. So we picked a Strawberry Daiquiri and another one from the house cocktail list. 35 rand each. Both were really not worth it. The daiquiri came out of a machine, tasted 100 percent artificial and extremely sweet. No taste of strawberrry at all. Could've been... More

Located in the vibrant long street in Cape Town, the mojito Cafe is one of the bar, nice looking outside. Happy hours are 17 to 19h and after 23h for some cocktails only, for an good price of 35R. But unfortunately the mojito is not included in the list of cocktails during this period. The rhum cocktail and the margarita... More

We really enjoyed the fusion food we selected for our late breakfast at Cafe Mojito -- almost brunch in fact. Great value as well!
