Description: Mango Ginger's focus is on creating healthy, nutritious and fabulously flavoured foods. We use only organic flour, pure fats and organic fresh produce where possible to create decadent, delicious treats. We are open from 07:30 to 17:00 on weekdays, and 08:00 to 15:00 on Saturdays.

We stopped in for lunch and are so glad we found this healthy spot. They make their food from scratch to control ingredients and there are lots of veggie, vegan, gluten free and sugar free options.

Portions are larger than usual for Cape Town: I couldn't manage the butternut soup plus half a salad.

They make their own kombucha with organic tea. It was very sweet and the owner agreed that it wasn't sufficiently fermented . She immediately took it out of sale and said she would keep tasting it every day until it was right. We were very impressed at the service and willingness to improve.

We will definitely be back. Pity it is open on Sundays.

Mango Ginger is a fantastic spot for all kinds of special diets, especially vegetarian, vegan, and gluten- or wheat-free. I have been here for breakfast, lunch and just coffee.Wonderful fresh juices.
Buy a bag of their small chocolate oat biscuits to take home!
The only small complaint I have is that sometimes it felt like the owner (manager?) was hovering around the tables, so that we weren't sure if she wanted us to hurry.The wait staff was very friendly otherwise.

This morning required a venue with foreign friends that were gluten intolerant. We chose Mango Ginger based on other trip advisor recommendations. Met by an attentive Manageress who served us our meals and was astounded by the amazing service and product knowledge. Generally a lovely place with good food, great coffee and refreshing drinks. Nice add on touch were the cookies served with coffees and teas. Healthy alternative options to the menu was appreciated by our friends. Take-away bars and seed balls were also a great option. We will definitely be back, away from the mad cycling rush in Cape Town that is over the Cycle Tour weekend.
