I wrote an article over a year ago about my experience at Mombasa Cafe , Cavendish Square, Claremont, Cape Town. I was moaning about the convenient joys of them being constantly empty, as well as the fact tat they did not serve Tabasco sauce (a big “no-no” as we know). Mombasa Cafe – Cavendish Square [...]
