This cafe has been in Hyde Park Corner for a few years now, replacing an old stalwart (Stephanie's) that was definitely getting long in the tooth. The new place features modern decor, an interesting (fusion?) menu, good food, pleasant quick service and a trinket shop. Great salad bar! Cheap she's not, but prices are fair for the quality offered. Fits very well in the atmosphere and ambience of the center.

Excellent setting on a warm morning. Outside seating is a must. Fresh orange and apple juices are a hit. Eggs Benedict is outstanding but salmon omelette found wanting. Bathrooms were in a poor condition and not cleaned from the day before. Staff and management attentive and will go back and try something else off the menu

Visited Life Grand Cafe at Waterfall Corner in Midrand with friends and received the most appaling service ever. Drinks took up to 40mins from being ordered to reached the table and when they came we had to send them back because the tasted aweful. The restaurant wasn't even busy. Asked for the manager, Pieter Black, and he was of very little help. His attitude left not much to be desired.
I would never recomend the restaurant to anyone, not even my worst enemy.

When we're visiting Johannesburg, this is a destination breakfast spot for us. That said, I thought that the service excellence has waned somewhat since we last visited. The food is still good, but not as great as it once was. Nonetheless, I would return as it might have been an off day.
Arrive early to get a nice table, order a capuccino, and savour any of their breakfast treats. We're normally spoiling ourselves so go for the eggs benedict.
Their lunches look quite good, but I've never had the opportunity to partake.

Nice setting, service was excellent and we felt that we were well treated. Although it is somewhat overpriced. Special attention was given to cutlery, glasses of water etc.
