There's a secret little Kingdom in Birdhaven

Author of 'Eat-Ting', Anna Trapido took a journey to a majestic place in Joburg called the Arbour Café & Courtyard in Birdhaven.

Despite all the environmental, political and mental exhaustion we face on a daily basis, it’s important to take a step back and look at the magnificent city that is in Joburg, says author of the book 'Eat-Ting' Anna Trapido.

Anna took a trip to experience the wonder that is the Arbour Café and Courtyard in Birdhaven. The author went to interview the Chef, Precious Ntsalaze for a Food and Home magazine but found herself nestled in even after the interview.

I stayed long after the interview was over because the space and its menu really reminded me of Johannesburg’s charm says Anna. Anna states that the cafe has a lovely ethnic diversity, that makes you feel like you are part of a global community.

There were kind of hipster young people speaking Zulu, and there were Jewish grannies with little curly haired toddlers and there were poodles.Many, many poodles, and Congolese families speaking French, and kids using the free WiFi.

Anna Trapido, Author of Eat-Ting

The author of the book 'Eat-Ting' states that the Arbour Cafe has urban spaces for communal activity, a live jazz session and a walled courtyard with garden tables.

You feel like you’re going into a secret little Kingdom because they have a front section that you can see from the road, but then you go through that and there’s a walled courtyard, and it’s got climbing ivy up the walls, and it’s like this little garden. There’s live jazz and people have brought their dogs. It's just lovely. It’s was a lovely Joburg experience.

Anna Trapido, Author of Eat-Ting
