“Simply delicious.”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

A perfect place to meet your friends for breakfast, brunch or lunch. The quality of the food is superb and a stylish presentation. It has an extensive menu. The scrumptious cakes and pastries are worth trying. They serve great coffee. It is always very busy, it is best to make a reservation. They also have freshly baked bread. A great cafe in Menlo Park.

“Awesome little spot, excellent food !!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

Came across this little restaurant unexpectedly. I was impressed by the menu and quality of food. Every element on the menu was creative and inspiring and had been thoughtfully put together. From the ginger beer with chilli flakes to the lamb spring rolls on puree aubergine and mint. I will definitely make a stop by Cafe Delicious. The only thing I can criticise is our waiter, although very helpful he had no knowledge of what the meals were served with, the steak dish was simply steak, no knowledge on any sides. He also didn’t know what was on the specials board, after reading it and coming back all he could tell us is there was pork, steak ect.

“Old east's best kept little secret”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

Nice! With a bit of spice. Fancy food, different but unique presentation and lots of attention, allows one to negotiate a tad longer. Great experience & the best coffee in Pretoria are two of many reasons why one keeps on returning to this little gem. Brian must be one of the most experienced & friendliest waiters in Pretoria.

“A firm favourite”
Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

This is the kind of place where you need to keep coming back so that you can eat your way through the menu. There are so many truly delicious options that it's hard to pick a favourite. At it's old location, good service used to be conspicuously absent, but this has improved dramatically. It's very busy so I advise arriving early or making a reservation. Warning: this is fancy food :) If your favourite places to eat serve simple meals in large quantities at low prices, you might find that this restaurant is a bit of an adjustment for you. But I'd say it's a worthwhile adjustment :)
