Food is good here, but absolutely no ownership or management on a Friday evening? I booked for 7.00, my food arrived at 8.15…….but not the fault of the staff. SHAME on whoever owns this restaurant for leaving it so woefully understaffed.

Well worth the visit. Owner driven, relaxed atmosphere and the salad/open sandwich was really great. The menu has a lot of good options including good vegan choices.

Spacious layout. Impressed by the waitress - knowledgeable & attentive, without being annoying. This fills it out to 100 characters - I hope.

We both had burgers and it was fresh and succulent. Had an inviting atmosphere and the cakes displayed looked very appetizing.

A busy coffee shop which has a very nice lunch and dinner menu. Food is always fresh with the prices being value for money. Popular for casual business meetings over a good cup of coffee.

Been here before, and once again, we had an excellent meal. The others had a burger (was huge and they said it was delicious), and I had the sole with mushroom risotto and champagne sauce. Amazing! The only disappointment was that we used our Entertainer...App, and although it was actually our mistake, we added the tip to the incorrect till slip (we got two - one for the full value, and the other for the amount less the discount). We added the tip on to the full amount, and it was not pointed out to us, so am sure the waitron scored well, as she would have received the tip, less the difference between the full amount and the discounted amount. All the same, a great place and will definitely go back (but will be more careful with the slips next time)More

Outstanding family brunch with fantastic and very accomodatingservice. We all had various tartine's (salmon, prawn and club sandwich) - without a doubt the most delicious meal we've all had in a long long time in Cape town. Highly recommend and we'll definitely be back

We had a lovely breakfast at Lime Tree and felt the food was very good and reasonably priced. Service was a little slow but not bad. Also very relaxing enjoying a bite to eat in the peaceful burbs.

Great service and great atmosphere. Quiet although busy but fast service never leaves you waiting. Always come back for more. The 3 topping omelette is worth it.

I have enjoyed breakfasts, lunches and evening meals here and have yet to be disappointed. Lime Tree Cafe offer a wide variety of delicious meals of genrous proportions to suit every palate. The staff are courteous and friendly. Top of my list for a high...grade satisfying meal. Their licence allows them to offer local wines and craft beers.More
