Melissa’s is a well-known franchise which started with Mark & Melissa van Hoogstraten opening their first store in August 1996 in Kloof Street, Cape Town. More 20 years later it’s a franchise that pride themselves on creating products and experiences for people who appreciate and value quality as well as honest, original, time-honoured production principles.

In 2016, Melissa’s launched the new Melissa’s Mantra and Melissa’s Mantra Café franchise concepts and I am lucky enough to have one on my doorstep, Melissa’s Mantra Café in Victoria road, Camps bay. I decided to take my cousin visiting from Johannesburg for her first Melissa’s experience.

Walking in we were greeted by a super friendly staff member and a whole lot of colour in a room filled with eye catching products that immediately got me excited.


Entering the restaurant area, I was amazed by the breathtaking view. The glass windows from the ceiling to the floor, gives you a full view of the beach and the gloomy winter skies. The cold weather obviously called for a cup of love.

We were surprised with a little snack to enjoy whilst making the difficult decision of what to order.

The waitress was extremely helpful and confidently shared that they’ve got the best burgers and pizza on the block.  With help from the staff and a vote of 3 out 5 among them, we decided to try their Spicy Cajun Chicken pizza.

It was absolutely divine and left me 100% satisfied. Not just the taste of the food, but the good service and overall pleasant experience.

Take a look at their great Winter Specials. They’ll definitely see me again for their Wednesday night buy one pizza get one free special.
