Who We Are

Evolved from a 12-seater café in the 90s making toasted cheese and instant coffee to a full-blown 100-seater restaurant, Under the Trees has established itself as one of Joburg’s best brekkie and lunch spots. We’re famous for our bold coffee, homemade chicken pie and thin-crust authentic Italian pizzas. Run by Christine and Vincent Schaffler, we love hearty, healthy, homemade goodness that leaves you feeling delightfully satisfied.

Most of the ingredients you’ll find on your plate are from our organic veggie and herb garden. The newest addition to the menu is our tender grilled calamari served with hand-cut potato chips or a garden salad. An indoor fire will warm your heart in winter alongside a glass of Gluhwein, while our outside garden area is the perfect escape from the busy city.

Closed on Mondays & Open Tuesday to Sunday – 08h00 – 17h00

We’re pet-friendly    Tel: 011 786 0242
