This is a really nice spot for a drink and maybe a meal, at a very convenient location, perfect for backpackers of all ages. I say "for all ages" because the Long Street Security people chatted to us on our first night in Cape Town, and when we asked where they recommended for a drink and some music, said "Judging...

This bar holds a special place in my heart, me and a huge group of friends went on a quiet night and run riot in this place, the owners were so funny and friendly and joined in with us and kept the happy hour going so we'd keep getting dirt cheap drinks - their frozen strawberry daquiris are NOT to...

The cocktails are cheap and very good (coming from a former bartender). It's one of the few places that doesn't make your ears pop with heavy music a Saturday evening on long street, so you can actually have a conversation. Friendly staff as well.

Great music, nice people, good food. Especially the Burgers and Pizzas are nice. Wednesdays you even get 2 for 1 Burgers. Whether you... More

It's a nice place if you love using your pizza as a frisbee for your dog, or getting ignored by the nonchalantly absent minded waitress, who will make sure that she remembers to forget your order. Best terrible service on Long Street. 😊

I've frequented Cafe Mojito for a while now....I'm yet to be dissapointed. Their food and cocktails always hit the spot. They make the best chilli poppers!!!! The staff and management are always so friendly and attentive, as are their clientele. A few places could take a leaf out of their book with regards to their cleanliness and hygiene. Their varied...

A great place to go on Long Street. With great live bands and wonderful staff who made our stay very enjoyable. The Happy Hour was great value and the Mojito cocktail was fantastic.
