I recently visited the most magnificent little pink cafe in Cedar Square Fourways called Guilt&Co. You cannot miss this restaurant, the walls are pink and decorated with little birds on them. The rest of the restaurant is decorated with greenery, animal skins, and wicker chairs. It’s the perfect ‘girly’ cafe and has a ‘holiday resort’ feel to it for me.
This little cafe is the perfect spot for breakfast and mimosas with the girls, brunch with bae or coffee and cake with your mamma. I’ve tried their chicken mayo toasties (R42) which are packed full of flavour and go down a treat with a pineapple ginger juice (R45). On another occasion, I treated myself to the fillet rostie which is a grilled beef fillet, served on a sweet potato rostie, topped with chevin goats cheese and sweet chili sauce. The meal was a generous portion size, the fillet was so tender and absolutely delicious (R139). I’ve also tried the prawns and rice which were served with a creamy peri-peri sauce – the team will also bring you fresh chilies to spice it up of it’s not hot enough for you (R122). Lastly, the lemon meringue pie is one of the best I’ve had in JHB! This cafe really is a love affair with food.
