Our group of four business colleagues thoroughly enjoyed our lunch in the small garden at Cafe 41. The meat and cheese platter was excellent, as were the sandwiches that were ordered. The coffees were also of a very high standard. This was the fourth or fifth time I have eaten at Cafe 41 and I have yet to be disappointed,... More

Cafe 41, has a convenient location, near the CBD, embassies and universities. If you are looking for good breakfast and lunch this is the place. Prices are reasonable. Try the Greek milktart, that is my favourite.

This is on my route home, so I drop in quite often. There is a good range of Greek-inspired breakfasts, snacks and meals, all served with style, and the coffee - both hot and iced - is excellent. Best of all is perhaps the tea, served in magnificent brass teapots! The standard of everything is consistently high, as it is... More

Had lunch here on a few occasions due to the proximity of where I was working. One day I had the baby chicken with peri peri and the other day I tried the lamb schwa. The baby chicken was tender and moist, but the peri peri was not as spicy as I prefer. The lamb was actually a little dry,... More

From the start the service of all the staff impressed me. With the heaters it was great sitting outside even on a chilly winters evening. Both the drinks and the food arrived very quickly and were very well prepared. The Rib-eye on the bone was delicious. Cannot say the same of the powerbomb peanut and banana smoothie though, that tasted... More

We visit Cafe41 on a regular basis, and when walking in we feel so at home. The back garden is a tranquil area away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The service is exceptional and the food always consistently good. No request is to big an effort at Cafe41. Looking forward to many more meals at this great... More

On our fist trip to Africa and our first night in Pretoria, we ate at Cafe 41 and loved it so much that we came back the next evening. We would have come back a third night, but we drove to Kruger National Park!
