A bit disappointed in the really slow service, this has always been a favorite when I visit Cape Town. The food was ok but not as good as expected. Maybe just hit a below average shift! Coffee was really good.

I asked two different waiters for a croissant and ordered a hot chocolate to accompany it. The hot chocolate was good but the croissant, atray of which was on display never arrived. The cafe was not busy but the staff didn't seem to care.

Walked in, 9 staff members. No greeting at door. Sat down for ten minutes. Two other tables. No attempt at making it to the table, decided to leave.
