The streets nearby all blocked off for a cycle race - getting close to anywhere for a late breakfast was impossible until we remembered Jiran. Although sitting outside can be a bit busy with guests leaving the suites upstairs/cyclists popping in for coffee and the general public going past, it is a great little venue and I wish Durban offered more Cafes like this. Coffee is great - having a double shot is a bargain. My Eggs Benedict style were delicious however the toasted sandwich with side of fries not good - how can a toasted sarmie be so bad? Having said this - Jiran is worth a visit for good coffee and a breakfast.

Often visit here on business trip. Interesting menu and good location to watch the passing show or have a casual business meeting.
Food is well prepared and priced and service good.
Good place to visit on our own or with company. Enjoy siting on sidewalk in good weather, but inside is also pleasant with comfy couch for a coffee and a chat . Most upset they had run out of cheese cake on my last visit...... Its the best and coffee is excellent. Menu is interesting and meals well prepared although on occasion options seem limited for light meals

Staff/Waiters should be better trained in such an internationally rated establishment with above average pricelists. good selection of coffee and very tasty chocolate cakes.
