I am an absolute lover of hidden gems, so when I recently brunched at That Spot on 4th I left one happy girl. The charming cafe found in the suburb of Parktown North definitely ticks all the right boxes.
It was a super chilly Gauteng morning and I was in need of a quiet spot to eat a good meal and do some much needed thinking. I arrived to a warm greeting and grabbed a table indoors in a tranquil setting amidst pops of colour and wall mounted planters.
That Spot on 4thThat Spot on 4th has an impressive menu that caters for almost everyone’s needs, from breakfast through to a late afternoon lunch. Dishes are scrumptious, wholesome yet simple and beautifully presented. I struggled to choose my brunch as the menu had several dishes that appealed to my taste buds. Upon my waiters recommendation I ordered the Activated Charcoal Waffles with bacon, mushrooms and avocado which was absolutely delicious.
The menu includes a range of smoothies, speciality items that I seriously need to go back to try out, as well as a kids menu. Despite being extremely stuffed I couldn’t resist finishing off my brunch with a slice of cake but there wasn’t much of a selection, so I opted for a slice of Guilt Free Chocolate Coconut Wholegrain and Dates. I loved that there are balanced and healthy options on the menu.
That Spot on 4th has a drinks menu that has a selection of coffees, juices and teas. I was really excited to see the selection of Superfood Lattes that are available. In addition to the normal hot and cold drinks available, they also have a decent wine list. It was too chilly for a glass of wine so I had a Chai latte instead, which happens to be my fav winter drink.

I managed to squeeze in a quick catch-up with owner and head chef Zané Robins. Her love for That Spot on 4th if highly evident and her passion is definitely reflected in the café as a whole.
