Cnr Café continues to deliver great food and service. Four of us had a great breakfast today. R450 for the total meal. Good value for money. The special menu had some really interesting items and with the average price being R70 it's great value. Taking to time out to go there is always a treat and recommended.

It is is still popular and it is easy to see why - warm afternoon, sitting outside, " village " feel with people running, walking and cycling past, and of course the great food and service. I was with a colleague and we both had the fillet steak special... More

This bistro had the beef fillet steak I had while in Johannesburg. The prices are quite reasonable and the service by the wait staff is prompt and efficient.

We took a friend to Cnr Cafe for dinner to celebrate a birthday and we were extremely happy with our choice of venue. We had a lovely outside table and enjoyed a beautiful Johannesburg evening in the casual and convivial atmosphere of the restaurant. Our meal of fillet steak and pasta was excellent; the service was friendly and efficient and... More

Ate here twice while on business in Johannesburg. The chocolate mouse - cheese cake combo is outstanding.
