When you’re required to entertain clients, it’s helpful to have a list of suitable places to eat and drink on hand that are tried and tested. We have a list of six places that range from morning coffee to after dinner entertainment where you can ensure your client’s needs are always taken care of.

Tucked away from the noisy streets and honking cars, Roast Republic is found in the Standard Bank building.

A classic choice for lunches, both leisure and business, Tasha’s menu holds something delicious for any patron. Their gourmet sandwiches are legendary. We recommend the harissa lamb with roasted aubergine and mint yoghurt or the Tasha’s chicken panini with avo, mushrooms and feta. Tasha’s bright, airy space also allows for a welcome break from the boardroom and the service is recognised countrywide as efficient and warm.
