What a lovely place to have an impromptu breakfast or lunch. The owners make everyone feel at home and the Greek island vibe lets you escape the hustle and bustle of life even for just an hour. Delightful.

Cafenio has to be the most consistent restaurant in Pretoria. I've just had my first humble mini breakfast of 2018 - as tasty as ever. I'm relieved their holiday season closure has ended...

We walked down the road the other day for a late breakfast at Cafinio. A tasty and attractive dish of rocket, cream cheese,egg and smoked salmon in a phyllo basket together with a glass of really good orange juice. While having breakfast it struck me...More

The restaurant is a pleasant surprise. With its blue chairs, it really does remind you of Greece. The menu offers Greek dishes but also burgers and sandwiches. Not surprising, their cappuccino is excellent. Service, friendliness, and ambiance score top marks.

We have spent many good times under the trees enjoying light Greek café food. Hearty and informal. Good wines but also excellent milkshakes, we love the mezes and the yiros. Lazy and easy chats the other patrons.

CAFENIO has been a great experience for me. I spent a couple of days working from this little coffee shop and absolutely loved the vibe... great music and even better food! Try their Gyro Shwarma! The best in town!
