We have been coming to umhlanga for many years, and always make African roots one of our go to restaurants. This morning we came back again after having terrible service two days earlier. On the offer that it would be better. We sat down at 9.30, and ordered 2 cappuccino a hot chocolate and a coke. We received these quickly and they were delicious. We then had to call the waiter over to take our food order. We ordered a toasted cheese and four smashed avo and poached eggs. Our food order arrived at 10.30, only after calling the waiter to complain about the duration. He told us then that they had no avo and they had to go and buy. Why could they not have told us before, and perhaps come to offer us more coffee. During the whole time the waiter never once came past our table. We finally received our smashed avo egg and toast. Below is a picture of the order we received there is no presentation or effort put into this order. We arrived for breakfast and left at brunch. Very disappointed with lack of service for the second time and food. if they were busy I could understand but there were 6 tables occupied at the time. Unfortunately the last time I will be thereMore
Mark the owner a stunning person personally welcome me and my family. Food excellent and the coffee specialist a huge asset to this experience!More
Enjoyed our first visit and dog friendly. My wife and I together with our four yorkies were walking past African Roots Coffee and the owner invited us to sit down and have some coffee. We chatted for a while and decided to stay for a snack too. I had the eggs Benedict with bacon. Nice hollandaise sauce. Eggs were a little more cooked than requested but it was delicious on toasted rye. My wife tried the cheesecake. It was a decent slice which she was going to have half and take the rest home. Needlessly to say by the time we had sat and had a couple lovely lattes, it was completely finished. Really enjoyed our visit and will be back. More
This was our favorite breakfast throughout our whole holiday in South Africa. They pride themselves on selecting excellent coffee, and they did not disappoint with our beverages. We also had the veggie quiche and eggs Benedict, both of which were cooked very well. The ingredients were fresh and high quality. The service was friendly, and the owner warmly greeted all of his guests. We highly recommend African Roots Coffee.More
We had our 3rd or 4th visit this morning and we continue to enjoy African Roots which is local to us. It may not be on the main strip or overlook the beach, which we enjoy as this is what makes it a hidden gem. They always have a well spaced out table available and it is shaded and cooler on warm Durban mornings! Food and Coffee are excellent, with an artisanal feel including quality ingredients such as bacon sourced from the Dargle Valley etc. A great note is that they carry awesome Rye and Sourdough bread options etc. directly from the Glenwood Bakery. African Roots is also pet friendly, catering graciously to our dog and if the Owner is around, they may spoil your pooch with a little bacon strip!More
