“Cafe dining done well”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

I like this place!

The food is consistently good. Not fine dining, but really good cafe-style fare. There burgers are really tops - perhaps even the best in Johannesburg.

The menu is vast, so there's bound to be a few things that will appeal to everyone at your table.

This is a 'safe' choice for breakfast, lunch or a casual dinner.

We had breakfast here. The food was excellent. The service was also excellent.
Much cheaper than the hotel breakfasts and better quality ;)

“Best Burgers and Bar One Sundae in Jozi!!!!”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

JB's burgers are ridiculous....ridiculously, deliciously good tasting!!! I chose the "All American" burger which consisted of their homemade pure beef patty, BBQ sauce, american cheese, cheddar, homemade cheese sauce and crispy onion rings, all served on a fresh hamburger roll, with the best french fries, coleslaw salad and a few slices of jalapenos. For sweets, I shared the outrageous temptation... the "Bar-One Sundae", which had a great even mix of vanilla ice cream, chopped peanuts, honey comb, astros, mini marshmallows with Bar One chocolate sauce.

Asides from the delish food ... Tastefully fitting decor, awesome atmosphere and superb service!!!

“Great vibe and good!”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Visited the Sandton City restaurant last night. I loved the décor, vibe and ambiance.
The service was brilliant and the lady serving us always had a smile on her face.
I ordered the Chicken Salad and it was amazingly fresh and very fulling - loved that they swapped out goats cheese for halloumi at no extra charge.
Will definitely go back.
P.S: Be warned the cakes, cup cakes and macaroons are located at the entrance of the restaurant and will entice you destroy your diet :)
