Tucked away in a totally residential neighborhood, this little gem is precious. Good food, convivial local clientele and fresh food. Wish we had found it sooner. We stayed at nearby Underberg Guesthouse and it was a lovely evening stroll. Felt like a local!

Hidden away in a quiet residential street, this small neighbourhood favourite offers a pleasant break from the frenzy of Kloof Street. It serves light meals from breakfast to supper, specialising in excellent thin-crust pizzas. Decor is pleasantly funky and service is friendly and efficient.
