The best Deli in Cape Town. Cannot bring price into the equation here. You want the best, you pay. STILL THE BEST. Not for a Few years, but a decade or two.

They have the best fresh-made deli-style sandwiches. A huge selection of cold cuts and cheeses. Coffee bar is also great. Fresh ground coffee to the liking. Highly recommended

Lots of delish deli items. The meat case was full of great choices for a very reasonably priced sandwich. I went with this prosciutto. Nice choice of breads and other pastries.

I have been here after one moth without eating a croissant and drinking a good cappuccino. It was sublime, very tasty and faithful to Italian tradition. Waiters are very friendly and careful. I loved this sweet Italian corner!

Good for take away or a casual meal on the veranda. Choose your own food or your own sandwich mix and they will bring it to your table. I ordered chopped liver on a twisted roll and my friend ordered chopped herring on a bagel...More
