About The Africa Cafe

Enjoy the Original African Feast! Get to The Africa Café for a vibrant multi-cultural dining experience. Since 1992, chef Portia has been creating food infused with African soul and passion. Experience an exotic tapestry of flavours that will take you on a journey from North to South. Housed in an historic national monument, the restaurant is divided over 3 levels and 7 richly decorated dining rooms.

The Africa Café menu is extensive but it is a set menu, perfect for sociable dining with friends. Guests are served at the table where the dishes are explained to them and they can eat as much as they like. There are usually around 16 dishes including coffee, tea and dessert. The current charge per person is R200 and this is going up in September '09 to R220.

And that's not all, The Africa Café is a firm supporter of Responsible Tourism Initiatives. The restaurant is a large employer of unskilled labour from previously disadvantaged backgrounds as well as refugees from other parts of Africa seeking asylum in South Africa. Comprehensive training is provided in food and beverage service and preparation as well as customer relations as part of their in house skills development programme.

The Africa Café also funds a ceramic pottery studio teaching skills to people from disadvantaged backgrounds as its main charity initiative. Zig Zag, the restaurant’s retail shop, stocks various gifts and curios, 75% of which are sourced from empowerment projects operating in South Africa.
