Standard coffee and cake set up. Cake and biscuits not particularly tasty. Rather long wait for coffee. Staff not very friendly.

I ordered a large cappuccino and chicken wrap and the taste and service was of a very high standard. It is a great place to sit and experience the buzz of Gateway Shopping Centre.

Excellent coffee and service everytime. Its a good thing that Gloria Jeans has been able to get this franchise around most of the shopping areas so that one is never deprived of such excellent coffee.

After a tough day it was a pleasure to sit down at Gloria Jean's to have some superb coffee and a muffin. The service was impeccable and the coffee tasty and strong. I would certainly recommend having a sit down to recover if you need it.

Ordered two cappuccinos which were good, but to pay R39 for a large cappuccinos felt was excessive. The banana bread at the cost of R20 was more resonable.

Their is a Gloria Jeans at both ends of Gateway so you won't miss out! Try the Caramel Latte - best in Durban.

The service and standards seem to have dropped, the milk jug was cracked really badly (possibly glued together) and they charge extra for serving cream / ice cream with an apple crumble, I honestly never noticed this before. The staff closed up but left our dishes at our table even though they came by twice because they needed the trays... More
