“Better for Lunch or Dinner”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We've had breakfast, lunch and dinner here several times. As a lot of the other reviews say Tribeca is in a great location and it's a fun place to sit outside and people watch. I've tried 3-4 different breakfast items and am still searching for a good one. I'm not a fan of their breakfasts at all and would say stick with the eggs benedict if you want to be safe. Lunch and dinner are a different story. They have great steaks and sandwiches which I enjoy. Also the brew fantastic coffee's and mix some delicious smoothies. It's worth a shot to form your own opinion.

“Disappointing expensive”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

The location is great and so is the outdoor seating. However, if the minimum you can spend is R55 for a few crumbed carrots and beans then it is not my scene. Will not return, no value for money

“Rather disappointing fare for such an excellent setting”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

You could still forgive a restaurant for a bad menu but when this is combined with bad service you are in for a bad experience. They just seem unable to get the staffing matter right with inattentive waiters who seem more interested in the tip than on earning it. On every occasion we have been we have commented on this to the manager.

The menu is pretty boring and they do not make any effort to prepare good food. If you looking for bar food to accompany your drinking the this will do. So out out place though for its current location. If not sorted out the expenditure to revamp it recently is gonna be lost.

“Always a great experience”
Reviewed May 13, 2014 via mobile

I always enjoyed their great vibe and fantastic food, before their closing and after their relaunch (brooklyn design square branch). Great smiles and vibes from all the staff, and excellent dining options on the menu.. Will always visit Tribeca when in the Capital.

“Never waste your time here again”
Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

No. No. No. Never again. This used to be a favourite saturday and sunday morning spot. Something dreadful happened here when they expanded and it has never recovered it's class. We keep trying to give Tribeca another chance but a double espresso the size of two t spoons is just a joke and the cocky waiter talking back patronisingly telling me it was 23 seconds worth of coffee was not helping their cause. I guess others may still like the place as they had run out of nearly all cake by 10.00 but we will not be back. Also, please remember water with espressos is a must! The manageress did resolve things eventually but the staff here ate dreadful.
