The menu has something for everyone. The food is very tasty with wonderful flavour combinations. Everyone in our group enjoyed their lunch and the service was great too. It is a very busy venue but we were never ignored. I would definitely recommend it!

Salvation Café came recommended and when my friend suggested having breakfast there, I was delighted. The service was attentive, the menu stacked with unusual dish choices. We sat outside and it was peaceful and cosy. No overpowering background music and grating sounds of juice and coffee blenders, just bliss. I tried the creamy scrambled eggs and it was a pleasing...

My friends and I chose this spot for our breakfast catch-up. Being from Cape Town I really appreciated this place filled with character and a great atmosphere. We were accommodated at a table indoors. Service was most friendly and efficient. The breakfast dishes were absolutely delicious! Each person thoroughly enjoyed their breakfast dishes. I had the french toast with halloumi,cherry... More

Where else can you get combos for breakfast! I was spoilt for choice, so had the most delicious combo of eggs Benedict and savory French toast. Great coffee too.

Not sure how great it would be in the rain but the are a few tables inside. I suggest that you get there early... More

This seems to be the most popular restaurant in 44 Stanley. I can see why: Excellent food, quick service and good wine. We went there for lunch and while it was crowded, we had made a reservation, so we were seated right away. What a nice experience to be in a local restaurant. We were here for brunch and ate...

Been here twice now and its always nice to eat there with great weather since its outdoor al fresco seating. However, the breakfast menu looks much better than the lunch menu. Breakfast ends at 1130am so be sure to be early. I had the Egyptian veggie burger bunless and it was good. Their wedges are nicely fried, crispy on the... More

Great for weekend breakfasts at 44 Stanley. Never had a bad one and the creamed mushrooms with the way they crisp their bacon is the best!
