Quincy’s Café was opened in 1998 to fill a niche in Pietermaritzburg for an upmarket café. It is located conveniently in the Victoria Centre and was immediately popular. The menu concentrated on quality breakfasts and lunches, and although a dinner menu was available, it was set at a much lower key.
In 2001 when Quincy’s Café changed hands, we decided to keep everything pretty much the same but increase the emphasis on the dinner trade. A new menu was designed that focused on evening fare, whilst retaining the feel of the daytime menu. All items on the menu are available whenever our kitchen is open, so if you feel like Oxtail or Ribs at 7:30am after a hard night carousing, or maybe a cheese and mushroom omelette after movies and before bed, Quincy’s is geared for it!
We do our best to accommodate any special requests you may have and will mix and match our menu to suit where necessary. It is wise to remember that we are not Halaal as we serve breakfasts with bacon and have other pork products prepared in our kitchen.
We are fully air-conditioned and have a huge parking area adjacent to the restaurant, and are 50m away from the Virgin Active Gym if you need to appease your conscience!
There is a unique angular, granite-topped bar separate from the dining area which is ideal for pre-dinner drinks or a beverage whilst waiting for a table. Casual, non-dining bar patrons are welcome, although the interior of the restaurant, (bar included) is a non-smoking area, we have an extensive, (60 seat) covered and weather-proof veranda with a separate entrance adjoining the main dining room, which is perfect for those who enjoy a smoke before/after/during their meal. This outside area is cooled by large fans in summer and heated with gas heaters in winter.
We attribute our continued progress to the stability of our staff and management, strict maintenance of standards, solid training, permanent management supervision and a genuine desire to please, which is reflected throughout our workforce.
Warm ‘Maritzburg hospitality, good value, generous portions, friendly, professional service and delightful dining await you at Quincy’s. Come and join us!
