Darkie Café’s menu offers traditional urban South African cuisine, as well as several signature Darkie dishes designed to offer a distinct African taste for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Our special breakfast menu ranges from soft porridge, muffins and scones, to the Soweto Breakfast.

The more adventurous gastronomes can tuck into a lunch of pasta, with either mopani worms or frikkadels (traditional meatballs), a bunny chow (hollowed half-loaf of bread filled with curry), or a salad with either chicken feet or biltong and avocado. You may also want to sample the Darkie Dagwood, which consists of fried bread filled with chips, chilli mince and atchar or chakalaka.

To cater for everyone’s tastebuds, we also offer a more traditional range of burgers (including a mouth-watering monkey gland burger), vis en tjips (fish and chips), pastas and salads.

For dinner, we recommend either the prawn curry potjie (prepared in a three-legged, cast iron pot), bone marrow, ox livers, chotlo beef (pounded, spiced and boiled) or mogodu (tripe cooked the traditional way).

South African meals also consist of starch, and Darkie Café’s offers include pap (porridge made from maize), samp (pounded dried corn), rice or chips to complement your meal. Our house vegetables include morogo (spinach cooked Darkie-style), and our salads are made using only the freshest ingredients.

Chakalaka, a distinctly South African accompaniment to a meal, is the perfect side dish and offers a true taste of local cuisine.

We offer a wide selection of desserts, for those with a sweet tooth, including Amarula crème brulée, malva pudding and koeksisters.

Also try our delicious home-made gemmerbier (ginger beer) – with or without a shot of alcohol.
