"A Gem uncovered"

I cannot explain it, it has to be experienced. That said, I’ll definitely be back to try the rest of the dishes. For the first time, I was conflicted between veg and protein based dishes. I now know that I have to put the veg to the test. Best mealie pap I’ve ever tasted… it outshines the best polenta I’ve ever had👌👌👌. Well rounded catering, flexi, veggie, pesci tarian 🙃😬

"Worth a visit"
8.7 Cuisine 9 | Service 9 | Atmosphere 8

A very well run operation. Excellent wine by the glass both white and red for those who enjoy their wine. At the right temperature and in good wine glasses. Tasty food. The only negative is that smoking is allowed outside which then wafts into the restaurant. As a friend says it is like having a pissing section in a swimming pool. Will be back.

Excellent food! Much better than some much more pricey places around JHB and tonnes of veggie and vegan options. The smoothies probably shouldn't make their way onto the menu unless they're ready to serve though.

About Brik Cafe

Cuisine: Sustainable, Vegetarian

Named for the red-brick architecture of its distinctive corner location next to Rosebank's Art Deco fire station, Brik is one of a growing number of Joburg cafes that takes eco-conscious, sustainable and ethical eating very seriously, conjuring up beautifully presented contemporary fare in a casual setting that you can rest assured is kind to the environment.

Brik runs a great trade in breakfasts (opening super early at 7am) while during the week its location next to the large Workshop17 co-working office space means there's always a steady stream of office workers dropping in for a healthy lunch. The lunch menu is pared down and Brik sources all its vegetables from its own plot on a co-operative organic farm near the east Joburg suburb of Bez Valley and these wholesome ingredients are put to good work in an imaginative series of salads including a warm aubergine, Brussel sprouts, mint, preserved lemon and hoisin salad that is a major crowd-pleaser.

Brik is also open for dinner until 10pm on Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays, with an excellent boutique wine list curated by manageress Odette Botha pairing perfectly with elegant dishes like calamari with roast grapes, grilled cabbage, taramasalata and pastry and an elaborate expertly executed gourmet burger. 

Brik Cafe was also nominated in the Best New Cafe category of The Coffee Magazine Awards 2019 and for good reason!
