Mango Ginger – Coffee Shop & Bakery

June 2, 2014

WELL worth a viz… to OBZ!

MANGO GINGER is to be found on the generally accepted hipster – ISH,  artsy fartsy-ISH Lower Main Road of Observatory, Cape Town…

Great (owner managed) service, and progressive, healthy options make it such a pleasure to eat out without the guilt.

They’re saying ALL the right things…

                                                     Wheat Free                                                               ORGANIC FLOUR

                                                                           PURE FATS

 Gluten Free                                                                       

                                                                                                       Organic Fresh Produce

 The menu was pretty exciting… including: 

  • 20140602-125424.jpgHot and cold drinks
  • Assortment of freshly squeezed juices
  • Smoothies
  • Shakes
  • Breakfast (SERVED ALL DAY!!)
  • Light lunches
  • Sandwiches
  • Salad meals
  • Cakes
  • Wraps


We settled on the following:

Starting with a Beetroot, orange and carrot juice (small to be safe 😉 )  R25



I had the Wheat-free Chicken and Leek Pie with Side Salad (R30 and R25) – the salad was SUPER duper fresh, with crispy new sprouts.




Egg and home-made mayo with rocket on brown R35

The array of YUMMIES to take away

looked amazing… I decided on

a bottle of MANGO GINGER salad dressing.

  • Balsamic, Olive Oil, Mustard & Honey  R45



OH MY WORD… and I quote… “Mango Ginger is not licensed, but

no corkage is charged for those who wish to

drink wine or beer with their meal.”

… bloody marvellous

    I can highly recommend the above Wrap “Honey, ginger and soya marinated free-range chicken strips … ” with the delicious ginger syrup sauce and beetroot crisps. One of my favourite Mango Ginger treats 🙂
