Replacing the old spaza shop on the corner of 7th Street, Spilt Milk is a social cafe that buzzes with a relaxed, unpretentious vibe.

Owner Jack Landon and his girlfriend, Emma, have transformed the space into something eclectic, stylish and breezy. They’ve also restored the beautiful pressed ceilings and brick walls that were part of the original Herbert Baker-style building from 1910.

Just like Melville, Spilt Milk is inclusive of everyone - it’s as much a live music venue as a sports bar and relaxed eatery.

The menu was crafted on the idea of the social café, where anyone and everyone is welcome. Melville has always been a bohemian, all-inclusive suburb of Joburg, and they wanted their menu to reflect that – whether you’re a vegan or a meat eater, you’re welcome here.

Our menu is about comfort food with a gourmet vibe, covering everything from warm breakfasts and smoothie bowls, to gourmet sandwiches, burgers, deconstructed poké bowls and smoothies.

They also plan to have something onset nights of the week - so it will be Poetry Tuesdays, Quiz Night Wednesdays, unplugged music on Thursdays, televised sport on weekends, and then jazz during the day on Sunday.
