Hands down the best Egg Benedict (and breakfast) of my life! Everything prepared to absolute perfection. Beautiful quaint outside seating area combined with great food, service and coffee - couldn't ask for more.

I met an old friend at Starlings for a catch up coffee. We sat in the charming garden where we were protected from the howling south easter. Our waitron was attentive but not intrusive. A charming place to meet and chat or to just sit quietly and work.

I've been here several times now and enjoyed it every time. The garden is a lovely spot for lunch. The food has been delicious every time and I was not disappointed this time. unfortunately they had run out of a few things, but everyone still enjoyed their lunch. Service was friendly & efficient, though could have been more attentive at... More

A really secret place, not easy to find, hidden behind a hedge! Really lovely outdoor seating area, cool in summer. Great coffee, cakes, breakfast, lunches and snacks.

When in Cape Town we decided to meet special friends for brunch and a regular suggested Starling Cafe. The one friend went ahead to reserve a table. It is a quaint old house with a hedge in front which is their trade mark. You walk "thru" the house which is a full working operational business to the back which we... More

We love visiting Starling Cafe every-time we are in Claremont. Lovely setting under the trees and umbrellas. You can't ask for better and friendlier service. Breakfast, brunch, lunch or just for a cup of coffee or tea it's always a good experience. Everything are tasty and well presented.
