Friendly waiters greeted us in a candle lit restaurant early on a Saturday morning and served us all smiles while dealing with a power failure.

Visited this unique and excitig cafe with friends for a Sunday brunch. We sat outside on the deck and forgot that we're in the city. And what an amazing site when the food arrives and everyone around the table is satisfied and happy. A menu and setting to be enjoyed by all.

We booked for a Christmas lunch at Blos Cafe, prepaid. The price was reasonable compared to some alternatives we considered, and we had a great lunch. The salads we small individually prepared bowls with interesting combinations, very tasty. All in all we had a very great time!

Blos café is a boutique café and function venue, on the corner of Olympus Road and Leander Road in Faerie Glen, Pretoria. We are a 7 day operation mostly day trade with the option to host exclusive evening functions for guests with parties of 20 or more. Our vibrant menu caters for the everyday diner by taking lighter meals to a whole new level. Dishes have a contemporary twist without losing their identity, with the emphasis focussed on uncompromised freshness and flavour. We pride ourselves on providing exemplary service without compromise. The atmosphere is entirely relaxed and caters for the individual wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, and also for those looking to meet with friends, family and for those who are looking to host their own special event. We offer a variety of seating options to our guests, and give them the choice of sitting in our renovated old farm house or the serenity of our garden. Blos café is where passion and commitment meets a relaxed and informal setting, which for us has proved this far to be our little piece of heaven and a recipe for success.
