Fodor's Review

This little community café is consistently good. Don't be fooled by the vegetarian menu; this is no health bar. The counter displays risotto cakes, Florentines, and apple, pear, apricot, and fig shortbread; the berry friend (a small, sweet cake made from ground almonds and egg whites, often topped or filled with fruit) is as good as any you will find. Try a breakfast of potato-and-fresh-herb frittata, or panfried polenta with smoked field mushroom, spinach, and feta for lunch. Wheat and gluten-free diets are well catered to. The wraps are irresistible, and the local cheeses and chutneys from the deli counter make great picnic fixings. The store sells local cheeses outside the door during the Grahamstown Saturday Market.
