The toasties at this 80s-style diner and superette are a must-try

Unpretentious toasties, from cheese-and-tomato to French Dip with broth 

Last updated: 15 August 2022

If you love unpretentious toasties, diner-style eating or even the colour red or pink, boy have we found a great spot for you. Arthur’s Mini Super in Sea Point is as fun and loveable as a fluffy doggo (and you’ll find them at Arthur’s too – it’s dog friendly). Step past the “Whuddup Fam” sign on the floor and get ready for happy tummies. Plus, they have a new mini bar, too.

YOU’LL LOVE THE DINER VIBE

Arthur’s Mini has loads of quirky details that you’ll adore. It’s super colourful inside with bold pink walls and red furnishings. It’s like a combination of an 80’s diner and a Barbie doll house. 

The outside seating is quaint, with red tables and stools that run along the length of the restaurant. Inside you’ll find diner-style seating and little arches that lead you to the next room. It’s such a cute spot, you just have to post a photo on your Instagram.

POP IN FOR A GLASS OF WINE

The new addition to the beloved superette is a mini bar with snacks and wine, including Mother Rock, Lubanzi and Menagerie. If you’re not in the mood for an entire bottle of wine, you can order a canned wine.

TRY OUT ONE OF THE SANDWICHES

Arthur’s Mini has loads of great options for both breakfast and lunch. Arthur’s takes you back to recess lunches and sports game snacks with their toasties. 

It’s unpretentious, wholesome and just plain good! The sandwiches come in all sizes, made up with different breads, from the classic cheese-and-tomato to the French Dip (roast beef on a baguette with a beefy broth for dipping).

Also on the menu are bagels, supplied by New York Bagels, as well as all-day breakfast options like the Wimpy Breakfast. Enjoy your meal with a cup of coffee or freshly squeezed juice.

POP BY THE GROCER

Arthur’s Mini has all the little essentials you need for your pantry (or even just snacks for a lazy weekend), from drinks and chips to preserves and dairy products from brands like Egg & Shoulders, Bergsoom Pure Foods and Okja. There are even some fresh fruits and baked goods.
