Hip breakfast/lunch/coffee spot with the best food we had on our trip through SA. Very friendly service and excellent interior as well. Will visit again!

This place was recommended to us by several friends but compared to the breakfast we had at Groot Constantia or in Hermanus this was not that special (or good). The portions were small, my croissant neither crispy (on the outside) nor fluffy (on the inside). My friend had the banana bread which came with some sort of cream she didn't... More

Walked past it in town on a Saturday morning and popped in for breakfast. The food was of a high quality. There were 4 of us and we all really enjoyed our meal. The fresh juices were delicious. It's quirky and we received great service from friendly people.

Arrived in CT after midnight so needless to say, the next day we needed breakfast at 1 pm. Where to go? Thankfully we found Skinny Legs on Loop St. All day breakfast! Try the quinoa with baked fruit, buckwheat pancakes with ricotta and mint, and red cappuccino. And the owner and staff are incredibly friendly.

I've been to Skinny Legs & All a couple of times for lunch: food is delicious and healthy. It's the perfect place for a light meal during lunch break, but note that service can get a bit slow when busy. Try their Zucchini Linguine, they come with a vegan pesto that is to die for!
