Eating and Drinking in Gauteng

The Ant Café



The Ant Café

The Ant Café is the longest-running restaurant in 7th Street and maintains the magical charm of 'old' Melville. An intimate venue with a rustic interior where you enjoy Italian classics, wine by the glass and coffee made with the best locally-produced beans available. What makes The Ant so special is loving staff, unpretentious service and the fact that for thirteen years neither the coffee-machine nor the music has ever been turned off.

About Gauteng

Gauteng occupies a high and dusty interior plain and is the smallest and most densely populated of South Africa's regions, with some 20% of the country's population living within its boundaries. This is the financial powerhouse of South and Southern Africa from where industrious Gautengers often rib their Capetonian cousins for their relaxed approach to life and consider Cape Town itself a fishing village.
