“Be prepared for a long wait. ..”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

I loved the food at 41. Decent portions and tasty.

However one the times that I was there parking was a nightmare and the wait was a bit on the long side.

Overall ...a great place with a relaxed atmosphere.

“Place I keep returning”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Cafe 41 is a place I keep returning to, time and time again. Excellent in vibe, menu selection and quality. Really good mediterranean food. Their vegetarian chickpea and sweet potato stew and also their lasagna is top class. Their cakes are to DIE for. Tea is served in antique silver teapots. The best are Groenkloof and Eastwood Village.

“Good food - but looong wait.”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Was in Pretoria last week and was working close to this venue, so got to eat there a few times. Food was generally good and wel proportioned. Wait was longer than I am used to from the US. But friendly enough when the staff did come over. Definitely convenient and good quality foods.
