I absolutely adore my little suburb of Craighall Park in Johannesburg. There are tons of little secret spots that in some ways I wish could remain secret, so I could have them all to myself. Sadly though, they all need business to survive and survive they must so I have places to enjoy sunny lunches. Say hello to Delta Cafe…
My latest find is Delta Cafe. This gorgeous, mostly outdoors, cafe is situated in the REEA Complex on Marlborough Drive. I recently wrote about another little gem that opened up here, The Bamboo Palace, and if these two new spots are a sign of the awesome things happening in this complex then I’m really excited for the new direction REEA seems to be taking.
UPDATE: I revisited Delta Cafe recently to see what’s new, read more here.
The menu at Delta Cafe
Delta Cafe has a small (and tasty) breakfast and lunch menu. They also serve superb coffee and cake and are an ideal stop for anybody visiting Delta Park. Cyclist and runners have fast become fans of this place, and it’s easy to see why too. The food is fresh and wholesome and there are some delicious salad options on the menu too.
Don’t expect gourmet cafe food here, but look to find some really tasty dishes that are perfect in their simplicity and are accompanied by great coffee. I’m not sure if it’s part of the plan, but the cafe doesn’t currently hold a liquor license, so you can take along your own drinks should you wish. Nothing wrong with a little champagne at brunch y’know…
Delta Cafe is open Tuesday to Sunday from 08h00 to 17h00 and can be contacted on 084 509 8084. Their website isn’t up yet, but you can follow their page on Facebook for the time being.
