We had breakfast at this café, the staff were friendly and gave good service. The café is warm and homely. The food is great and very fresh, their cakes were delicious and are daily baked. I really enjoyed their food and service.

Of the best sandwiches we ever tasted. The menu is great (food combinations that works), the food is great quality and fresh, the service quick. Something for everyone - banting, salads, meats, pasta, sandwiches, breakfast, cakes. Cafe-style destination on the street. Would love to come...More

Pure Cafe has to be one of Pretoria's best kept secrets! The menu offers interesting, out of the box, healthy dishes in a lovely setting. The service is good, and prices affordable. Excellent choice for a business breakfast/brunch/lunch!

Once again we were not disappointed. The menu offers very unique healthy dishes. I had the very tasty aubergine dish, my wife the smoked trout breakfast. Great suburban cafe with good atmosphere and service. Good value for money.

Great breakfast & lunches with low carb/no cane sugar options. Famous for our good coffee. Got a real street café feel. A destination restaurant for 10 years with loyal customers.
