Loved stopping in here, whether it be for lunch or coffee.
great atmosphere in shop, lovely fresh food everyday, just get plate and get as much of whatever fresh food you want on a plate.

“Still numero uno”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

Last nights perfect sunsut at Queens Beach was enhanced by the superb selection of food that was bought at this classy deli.
We had 15 different plates,each more delicious than the rest.
My favourites were the artichoke hearts, the beetroot quinola(sp?) the rare roast beef, and the chopped chicken liver.The last item was amazingly good.
The bread rolls were also great.

Grab a coffee and pose at one of their tables, or go in there to pick up dinner at their maxing Deli! This place is always a treat when it go to Cape Town

“eating at the bar terrace in a shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

for a light lunch, sitting outside at the bar and talking to your neighbors... a good place to mix with the locals and the tourists. Easy going.
