Gingko, Parkview Also buffet style breakfasts and lunch charged by weight – great selection; there is a playground for kids so Mums can chill; 61 Dundalk Ave 011 486-3361
Moemas, Parktown Quarter The brainchild of Daniell Postma who trained as a chef in London. Very pricey but oh so good. Wonderful quiches and salads – try the chickpea and chard ; and pastries, brioches and tartlets to die for. Grab a place outside in the sun on a warm winter’s day. 011 788 7725 Cr 7th and 3rd Avenues Parktown North (Joburg has to be the only big city where you can have an address corner 3rd Ave and 7th Ave .. go figure??) Sadly only open for breakfast and lunch
Woolworths stores Always have good buffet style meals with loads of vegetarian options . The Hyde Park café is particularly good.
