Quaint setting in a local nursery located in residential area. Decor can do with a face lift, however very friendly service level and food tasty. Will return.

Simple garden centre eatery. Everything is well cooked and presented. Nice staff. Eat inside or out. Parking a bit of a challenge.

I used to pop in often for a quick cup of coffee to this venue. However, visited this week, to find it under new management, and very quiet which felt odd. Ordered the usual coffee an was soo terribly disappointed. The coffee was warm and burnt. It probably could be a contender for the worst coffee in Durban. I did not even drink half of it but the wait staff did not even notice to enquire if anything was wrong. My companion also complained about the cappucino. A definite do not visit for coffee sign should go up.

One arrives at the small restaurant having walked through a gift shop area which is attached to a nursery - you can hardly believe that this is a busy residential area. There are a couple of tables and chairs outside where parents could watch their children play on a jungle gym or swing which is a very basic area. There are some steps to climb to get up to the restaurant, however a ramp does exist for wheelchairs and prams. The menu is limited but the food was very tasty. When the restaurant opened some time back it was vibrant and colourful. Unfortunately, it needs a little injection of colour now as it is looking a bit tired and needs some TLC. The art gallery has closed down on the property which is a pity. Despite this, the service is friendly and it is really relaxing to be there up in the 'tree' area. Worth a visit even for the great coffees. Parking is limited on site but there is plenty of parking in the road. Will certainly return for the tranquility and food.

Lovely get away almost in the middle of the city where you forget that you are in a built up area. The attached nursery is well stocked and provides a refreshing change.
