Respond to Review of REMOVED:Cafe Jo Brown
by Stevie

Review: This place is very centrally located a few doors up the hill from Long St very near to the Dubliner Bar. I had lunch in this place today and enjoyed it very much. I chose a couple of the different samosas available to start with and then went for falafel. Both were lovely and the sauce that came with the falafel was delicious. Throw in a cup of coffee and it came in at somewhere around 50 rand which I felt was good value. There are plenty of vegan veggie options or indeed some lacto veggie items if that is your bag. There are other diets marked on the menu board such as egg free, wheat free. The place is named Cafe Jo Brown after the guy who runs the place (he says he is nicknamed 'Brown' by his friends because of his colour) and the name of his wife (a Bavarian called Johanna). Hence as well as speaking English he also speaks German. When I was there he was chef and waitor but he says that his mum sometimes helps out. He was a pretty friendly guy and when I was there he drifted over to where I was to shoot the breeze. Going back to the apartheid days, Brown was an activist in the SRC. The place is small & cosy with a few seats outside on the street and some tables inside at the counter, at the window and around a table. I was tempted to give the place 5 out 5 but that is something I do on very exceptional circumstances. I'm still not decided but for now I'm marking the place as a 4.
