Simply superb! Best breakfast in Cape Town without question. Even better is breakfast is served all day! Visited 3 days in a row and tried the chefs, Banting and eggs Benedict. All delicious, but eggs Benedict the hero.

Had a good meal without a reservation. My husband enjoyed hugs steak and I had the warthog ribs which were delicious. The ambience is not great but it's very good value and the food very good.
