I am now no longer living in South Africa but I would regularly visit this spot the last 4 years! A great place to enjoy a good cappuccino, under the pretty trees, while the kids play on the lovely equipment in a safe fenced area. It's a lovely spot to meet friends and there is always something affordable fun and... More

Had a Saturday lunch. This is a very informal restaurant. The staff seem to hover around the kitchen counter yet don't anticipate their customer's needs. Food very average. No vegetable quiche which was a main option on the lunch menu. Chicken burgers were ok. Red velvet cake dry and disappointing. Not the place to go unless you have young children... More

Not as good as had hoped. Service is a bit slow and for a kid friendly place I didn't think the food selection for them was that great. No hot dog rolls for the hot dogs!!! Probably will go back for a coffee because the kids enjoy the play area.

I have been to Aroma Café twice once for a kiddies party, which is when I was introduced to the place. It is a perfect venue for the adults to meet up for coffee/breakfast as there is loads of jungle gyms and jumping castles etc to keep the kids busy. The food was average, I had the breakfast granola which... More

Appalled by the service, incompetent staff and lack of interest in organising a party. Food and drinks were late. Coffee station disgusting. Served with Broken cake knife taped together. Disinterested manager and owner. All in all disappointed and I Do not recommend having your party there.

Situated right next to the Fourways Farmers Market this is really a kiddie venue, not a gourmet outing. Having said that, the Sunday brunch buffet is fun, and the kids loved the pancakes and helping themselves to as much as they would like. Plenty of play equipment and it's all fenced off so no toddlers can escape. Don't expect great... More

Great service, pity that the lamb burger was so bland and lacking in flavour and moist lamb meat. Lime and chilli burger was disappointing. Chips were fried in fresh oil which was great but lacked any real seasoning apart from salt. Bacon and cheese quiche had a nice crust but again the filing was not flavorful. Great area to eat...

Breakfast options: A-la Carte or Buffet. With the buffet, one can have a cold breakfast i.e. Continental, a hot breakfast: bacon, scrambled eggs, poached egg in a Napoleatana sauce, sausage, pancakes, etc. or both for R75, eat as much as you want.Asked whether we could order fried eggs with the buffet meal and was told that it was not done...

A beautiful relaxed cafe. All sorts of jungle gyms, trampolines and bikes for the kids to play for hours under large shady trees. Food is delicious (the kids LOVE the food), staff friendly and the nannies looking after the kids are so great! Love coming here!
