“Gem in the suburbs”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Wanting to experience more of the local spots we met a friend at this delightfully bohemian cafe for breakfast. Great cappuccino and good breakfast.
More so the eclectic decor and the bohemian, laid back vibe.
Definitely worth a visit

We often go here for coffee and cake - they do a divine glutenfree cake . Had lunch today for the first time in a long time- pear chicken and avo salad - divine- it is the kind of place where you can sit and linger for hours- there are magazines to read - you never feel rushed and the quirky shop is well worth a visit. It has one of the nicest outside areas to sit in out the back.

“Antique gem”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Once known as the Churchill, the Antique Cafe, run by new owner Stefano Toffoli, is a small gem, to be found nestling in an old house on Churchill Road in the suburb of Morningside, Durban. Open during daylight hours, this modest venue offers the charm of rustic tables, antique cutlery and walls adorned with posters from the last centuries. The menu provides the real charm of this hospitable coffee shop cum cafe. Interesting home-made muffins, good, imaginative sandwiches, excellent wraps and salads give a good selection of breakfast, lunch and coffee-break light meals. The coffee is good, the cake selections delicious and the service is friendly and hospitable.
A good choice for those shopping in the near-by Windermere Centre or those driving by looking for a place to meet with friends.
