My Lunch at Lime Tree Cafe

Lime Tree Café is a contemporary little eatery serving breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner (ie. everything) in Bergvliet, in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town

As you walk in, we dare you not to be seduced by the delicious deli offering delicious fresh and free range goods, food gifts, bottled produce like jams, honeys, sauces, oils and olives, cheese, meats, nuts, biltong, patisserie, breads and so much more.

Lime Tree Cafe Review

The cafe itself reminds me of the cute farm stalls you visit when in the Winelands, with the wooden tables and chairs and mismatched decor. There’s also a spacious outside area that is covered to keep the sun or rain at bay.

Roasted broccoli & brie soup

Soup Starter Lime Tree Cafe

For a soup with such strong ingredients, it was delicate and perfectly balanced. There was a good hit of onion and a velvety texture thanks to creamy potato. It was homely and comforting – perfect for a winter’s day. Divine.

Yellowtail with black mussels and a parmesan risotto

Lime Tree Cafe Review Main

This dish was incredibly rich, but was countered with a generous squeeze of lemon. The mussels were light and tender, adding that salty flavour of the ocean. The true hero was the risotto. It was perfectly al dente, creamy and cheesy and I would have been perfectly happy to sit back and enjoy an entire bowl of it.

Lime Tree Cafe is truly one of the Cape Town’s hidden gems. Their hearty, affordable menu gives you plenty to choose from and the service is top notch.

PS: Try one of their freshly squeezed fruit juices and ask them to add a little ginger. Delicious!
