A lovely, intimate cafe full of second hand books. The menu is limited but excellent for breakfast, we had breakfast there 3 times during a one week stay in Paarl. Very friendly staff, highly recommended.

I am from Paarl, and take my advice that this is the best spot for breakfast or lunch... Sarina the owner makes excellent food prepared with care. The coffee is the best in town. Understated but delivers on delicious food!

My favorite breakfast, lunch or coffee stop in Paarl! Very cosy atmosphere, great coffee and Sarina, the owner, will always make sure that you receive excellent service. Their chicken salad is my favorite thing on the menu!

Lovely atmosphere but staff seemed overwhelmed. Unfortunately had to leave after an hour because food hadn't arrived.

We stopped in at Sit Cafe for brunch while passing through the area. The menu is quite limited, but the staff were happy to accommodate dietary restrictions. The food was delicious and well-priced, and we would recommend the cafe for a quick bite to eat...More
