Instead of grilled chicken strips on a salad base...it was a dollop of chicken mayo dropped onto a very rough looking salad. Usually the food is always good, however this dish let the side down. Looking forward to... More

We arrived a party of six and wanted to join two adjacend four seater tables for lunch, when the waitress told us we are not allowed and the owner confirmed this, saying we will affect the atmosphere in the restaurant.

Well the coffee is great. The food not so good. I ordered a falafel which is a round ball served in pita bread. This was squashed up into a tramazini with way too much sweet chili sauce. It gave me indigestion and will never go back again.

I am very sorry you did not like our traditional Falafels. We try to put our own spin on the Israeli food we serve and to also to keep it affordable therefore we found Tramazinni's are just the best way for us. Please give us another try and maybe ask for the Sweet Chilli Sauce on the side? Although we... More

Very good place to meet family and friends for a delicious meal with the best coffee and light meals. Pity they are only open during the week but it's understandable.

One has to look for this busy little place for it is situated in the industrial area of Mossel Bay, but if you love coffee, try your best to find this little restaurant. Great ambiance, great décor, great coffee, but a very limited menu (it is okey, for you must go there for the coffee!!!) and the staff does not... More

The staff are extra attentive and the owner is personally involved with service and it all runs like clockwork. It is well worth a... More

Found this gem by chance while looking for a cup of coffee. Had a couple of falafels and cappuccinos. What a treat. Friendly service, good food and interesting, warm at home environment. If you want good coffee then this is the place to go along the garden route.
