Lovely little hideaway in a busy shopping area. Pretty garden to sit in but was a bit cold so we sat inside. Very comfy and welcoming. The food was very good - I had a chicken wrap and it was excellent. My family also had no complaints. Would definitely go back.

Revelations is my favourite restaurant in Grahamstown when it comes to breakfasts. The service is generally quick (and after one or more returns they are likely to remember your favourite menu item), the coffee is good, but those softly scrambled eggs are simply outstanding.

Nothing outstanding to say about this cafe. Can best be described as mediocre in all respects ... Quality, service, cleanliness and hospitality

We are sorry to hear that you did not have an enjoyable experience with us. This is most definitely NOT what we strive for. We always prefer that guests tell us on the day if something is wrong and give us a chance to rectify the issue before going to social media sites. That said - we do hope that... More

Nice food at a reasonable price. Service was good. The portions are big- not necessarily a good thing! Generally, a nice place.
