Met long-lost friends here and had a leisurely brunch with them here. Cute spot to sit, either on balcony or inside on comfy couches. Service was friendly although kitchen was bit slow when place filled up. Interesting menu with lots of Croques, souffles and Benedicts, but both coffee and food could have been served slightly hotter. Will be back!

Great cakes & tarts as usual. The best by far is the plum or apricot tart. Good location for visiting Cape Quarter.

Happened in by chance, as Manhattan was a bit too crazy and busy. Had the lamb with a side salad. The lamb came covered with a brown sauce and it was difficult to eat as there was so much fat, gristle and bone. Perhaps South African lamb is like this, but I thought it was awful. Decided to have some... More

Please come around and introduce yourself to me so I can handle this in person . This is not how I want my business to be perceived . Ask for Juhan the owner and give me the opportunity... More

Yes i could say this was the best spot in town but not anymore.Cameras everywhere something like 11-12 cameras and in the toilet too.Even a supermarket doesnt have that?Anyway i didnt like that idea of appearing on camera in such a fancy restaurant coz actually it doesnt feel nice you feel like you are sitting in a jail or something....

Hi there, We feel so sorry that you did have a good time at LPT !! Yes we do have a few cameras at the restaurant because in summer LPT still open till later and it is the way that we found to make our staff and customers safer but we never had the intention to make our customers uncomfortable,...
