Cnr Café in Craighall has been around for ages, and I’ve been there a few times before for breakfast (I like sitting outside on the patio in the sunshine), but only once for dinner. I really liked it. There’s something on the menu for everyone- classics with a quality twist. Think fish and chips with Norwegian Salmon instead of hake, and my favourite, parmesan chicken and chips. Rishav thought their beef burger was excellent too. The food probably won’t blow you away, but it’s reliably good.
I’m not sure who does their cakes (or if they’re done in house) but the dessert selection was great, and we had a really delish cheesecake.
We sat inside close to the open kitchen, and it was a little bit noisy for my liking.. I kept hearing “table 8, chicken prego, now” or “let’s move, come on!” which detracted from my dinner experience a bit but I still really enjoyed the experience.
I like the bistro vibe and can tell that there is a focus on quality and good, prompt service. You can expect to pay around R250 for a 2 course meal for 2 people- good value I think.
