We have been in Cape Town for less than a week and have been in Peter's House 3 times, that's how good it is. Fresh gorgeous home made food, tasty tea, coffee & cakes and wonderful staff and atmosphere, honestly what more could you ask for. Also anywhere that has board games and cards for all to use is my kind of place. One of the staff even taught us how to play backgammon after dinner! Come here - you won't be disappointed (It's also great for veggies!)

Current deals:
Mac & Cheese Monday ( A steal at R25 and R5 for extras)

I've been here several times in the last few days. The food is terrific and I highly recommend a trip for the Mac N Cheese Mondays. Incredibly cheap for a great meal. I would also add that the coffee is epic.

The staff are incredibly friendly. My girlfriend and I were attempting to play backgammon and looking extremely confused, one of the staff sat down with us and ran us through the whole game.

Great spot, I can only highly recommend the place.

There's a little cafe, restaurant, bar, cosy-corner I like to go to on days I have tones of admin to do. Peter's house is sort of tucked away like the best kept secret it is, and they have a simple, homestyle menu and specials like Macaroni and Cheese Mondays, and High Tea on Thursdays and Fridays and you always get tempted but the cakes and cookies they have on display!

It's just a lovely, cosy, fun atmosphere with awesome yummy's and free wifi and the cutest little tea cups with matching saucers! Something I think is extremely important for a place to have..

I HIGHLY recommend Peter's House if you want somewhere to have an easy going meeting, catch up with girl-friends, visit some awesome warm and welcoming people if you're feeling low or a place to sit quietly listening to cool indi-music while emailing happily and sipping caramel Rooibos.

Go there. Now.

Having seen the prominent position on Tripadvisor, we gave this place a go for lunch and it was so good we ended up coming back for dinner and then lunch again later in the week. Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff, great coffee, strong wifi and fresh tasty food at a very reasonable price.

We loved Peter's House so much that we went there twice for lunch and once for dinner in 2 days! It is a great little cafe with a fresh and healthy menu, fab coffee and delicious cakes! Everything is home made and cooked to order, while the dinner menu is simple it is so well cooked and presented. Those working at the cafe are fun and friendly and make eating there a really nice experience, definitely drop in if you're in Cape Town.
