“Karoo in the city. Fabulous”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

The service is sometimes a little slow I've always had to wait before I get a menu? But overall the place is fabulous. Like being in the karoo. Love the bookshop and other little shops too.

“Disappointing breakfast”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Such a lovely interesting place & menu but very disappointing. Medium eggs were so hard as to be inedible, bacon was tough and the so called chakalaka was tasteless. The yoghurt berry compote was ok but berries being in season, I expected fresh, not jam like berries. The best I could say for the service was that it was inattentive.

“Authentic Atmosphere”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

We took our friends from Switzerland to Karoo Cafe for a meal - they loved it - that says it all! Good wholesome food, well prepared and presented. Their fruit-smoothies are divine. The friendly service is second to none - individual wishes are painstakingly fulfilled. The ambience is utterly unique and one can spend the extra leisure or shopping hour within the perimeter ... and so much to feast one's eyes on in the adjacent gallery. Or just enjoying the sunshine outside in the natural garden setting. It's a 'home-from-home atmosphere all round! My husband and I have spent many delightful hours and special events there and will continue to do so - with family and friends.

“I will not go back”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

I took my family for breakfast at this restaurant, I will not go back. The food was tasteless and the kitchen staff were loud and noisy. It was impossible to have a conversation with aal the kitchen noise.

“Meat Lovers...but Salad lovers too! :-)”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

This restaurant has the most amazing choice of meats, which one can even buy fresh and vacuum packed, from behind their counter where it's displayed. The food you order is absolutely fantastic and extremely well prepared. The have a Salad Valley, which is free with every meal. That, by itself is also something one will go back for! You will enjoy this restaurant...if you don't...you were not hungry! :-)
