Gold Mine Cafe – not so much…

I’m always very excited to find new food spots & doubly so when they’re in my neighbourhood (Jozi CBD), so imagine my excitement when I stumbled across Gold Mine Cafe right in our street! They opened in September this year & we had noticed the renovations & bright lights these last few weeks but it was finally time to check it out.

Gold Mine Cafe is actually part (& attached to) the Reef Hotel, a 4* hotel & conference venue in the heart of Jozi.

Everything from the decor to the staff uniforms are on theme


  • That it’s in town, my ‘hood & walking distance from our apartment!

There’s a good variety on offer & its all well priced.

If you’re in a hurry there are also ready-made meals available to grab on the go.


  • The business hours – they’re open till 10pm  7 days a week!
  • The decor & the underground/mining theme, really different.
  • The food is very affordable (should have sounded my alarm bells!)


  • Unfortunately, the food. The Hawaiian chicken burger I ordered was not good.  It was a filleted breast, but there wasn’t much of it and there was something amiss with the sauce on the burger too.
  • The chips tasted like the oil had been recycled one too many times.

If I ran the place

  • I’d up the quality of food significantly. If the price needs to go up with that, that’s ok.

Need to know

  • Secure parking is available if the restaurant is to be used for year-end functions or events.

We left after settling the measly bill of around R52 (1 shared burger & chips + 2 sodas) and while it was great value, my hubby put it well when he said we’d have gotten more satisfaction from a McDonald’s meal for the same money.

I was so excited to stumble on Gold Mine Cafe & wish I had a better story to tell of my experience. That said, it could be a bit harsh to judge them off just one meal, so maybe I’ll be back for another try although it won’t be anytime soon :/
