The food at Colbyn is a reflection of the décor, unpretentious and simply to-die-for. From their pizza breakfast, to their trademark sandwich, one could be forgiven for finding any excuse to lounge the day away.
For those who wish to take a little piece of Pure Café home, the deli offers an array of baked goodies.

With delectable combinations like rump, rocket and wasabi bruchettas, gourmet sandwiches and wraps or canapés, our platters are in a league of their own. You can make up your own combinations or we will suggest our favourites to you. We do a variety of beautiful canapés, sandwiches and wraps that will satisfy your guests and specific crowds. Specific dietary requirements can also be catered for. Choose between either disposable platters or white ceramic platters for hire.
There are buffets… and then there are Pure Café buffets! Think homemade chicken pie and gourmet lasagne with salad and ciabatta. Other options include dishes like Asian pulled pork, three-cheese brinjal bake, or choose a salad like the strawberry, rocket and avocado salad. We can either serve the buffet to your guests, or you can handle the serving yourself.
This is a huge hit – guests taste different dishes in small bowls. This is a way to experience little taste explosions on different levels. Fresh, modern and exciting: waiters serve the gourmet mini canapés on trays throughout your event while your guests mingle. Here we offer more substantial snacks served in e.g. a bowl, which can be enjoyed whilst standing. Dishes include mini lamb curries or tempura prawns, as example. Most of these snacks are served hot and made fresh on-site. Also commonly referred to as mobile food.

Gourmet mini canapés. We serve these delicious snacks at room temperature and display them elegantly on a table on platters and canvases.
Some examples might include Springbok carpaccio, marinated bocconcini and rocket skewers, or bobotie spring rolls served with chutney in a glass.

For that memorable 40th or fine-dining evening with good friends… let Pure Café pull out all the stops to ensure the perfect event.
Following a compulsory site visit, we can prepare any menu your heart desires. Like Fillet with Wild Mushroom and Thyme Sauce, or Lamb Roulade with Northern African preserved Lemon Stuffing, and sides like Potato Galettes with Baby Vegetables for a main course. The only limit is your imagination.
We can provide a full waiter service, barmen and chefs for that special touch to your function, and also offer optional tablecloth and crockery hire. A bar with cold beverages and wine, as well as tea and filter coffee are optional.
A variety of breads, pastries, cakes and quiches are baked fresh, daily. You can phone your order in and it will be ready for you to collect, or come have a coffee in the restaurant while enjoying a slice of our famous baked cheese cake.
Yes, our coffees are amazing. We’re not the only ones who seem to think so. It was quoted before by some magazines and in the previous SCASA book that we serve the best cuppaccino in Pretoria. We also supply home cooked cordials, smoothies, fresh fruit juices with no sugar and no dairy options!
Baking, more than any other culinary endeavor, requires a special kind of person. It is not enough to follow a recipe exactly, nor will it do to have a lovely looking treat that tastes sub-par. Bakers need to be lovable, their treats filled with the passion they have...
