Spiced Up Menu Review – Café Vigour


If you like keeping things SPICY, then this review is for you!

I was recently invited to Café Vigour, Suncoast where we were pleasantly introduced to their NEW Spiced Up menu. Event organisers and Café staff (including Sous-Chef Lyndon) were all set to take us on a spicy culinary adventure, they were welcoming and knowledgeable.


We kicked things off with a Butternut and Feta Salad. Based on a well balanced spicy, Capetown / Malaysian theme utilising the freshest ingredients, this starter was refreshingly tasty.

Next up, a Creamy Chicken, Mushroom Pasta. Don’t let its simplicity fool you, it was fragrant and the spice was just right. The cream rounded the dish off nicely and tasted like MORE!

Their Lamb Korma was more Malaysian inspired, nicely spiced (more on the HOT side) but still delicious as were the Chicken Livers. The Hake and Calamari mix were well presented and tasty although the Calamari was a bit chewy for my liking.  Next was a fragrant, melt in your mouth Butter chicken Wrap that was very flavourful. The Vegtable Neapolitan was scrumptious as well as the Chakalaka Soup, both were a were a spicy “Wow”.

Waffles and ice-cream rounded off the afternoon as well as some very nice, full-bodied coffee’s.

Overall the management were found approachable with the staff friendly and polite and the experience was most enjoyable.

If you enjoy Spicy Cape / Malaysian inspired food within a fresh & laid-back Durban / South African vibe then this is a must for you.



Café Vigour is situated close to the main entrance to the casino and is inspired by a strong infusion of South African / Cape Malaysian and international trends, serving moderately priced meals in a in a relaxed and comfortable setting.

The menu caters for all ages and tastebuds, serving quality sandwiches, wraps, burgers, pizzas, as well as breakfasts, seafood, steaks, pastas, puddings, hot beverages and excellent coffee.  The Café also boasts a complimentary wine list and kids menu.
