Born in Durban, South Africa, owner Gabriella is of Hungarian, Italian and Norwegian descent. Her goal is to bring you on a journey to her native countries through her food and wow your taste buds with her delicious family recipes.
My experience: We paid a deposit for our large table which was considerately deducted from the final bill. They were very accommodating and let us order from both the breakfast and lunch menus for our brunch. They also told us we could happily have the table all day until they closed. Because they make and sell baked goodies, a "corkage" fee is paid if you bring your own birthday cake. We weren’t aware of this policy and agreed to pay, but they kindly decided not to charge us in the end.
Service could have been a tad bit better as we had some hiccups with a few orders, but they quickly rectified those when brought to their attention... Everything was delicious and they cater for vegan and vegetarians as well. I had the Brioche Cone which was super yummy. Their fresh juices are really good too although they could probably be increased in size.
I really loved the ambience and didn't want to leave. Will definitely be going back soon. Please give them a visit!
