Green Leaf Café is an awesome spot at the historical Donkin Reserve with one of the best views in town. This restaurant is an initiative from the Umziwhetu Academy, where they train under-privileged people for jobs in the hospitality industry. They got the opportunity to open up a restaurant at this famous spot and decided to utilize it as a space where their qualified chef’s can get practical experience. It is now booming business that’s run solely by some of the past-students and they definitely do not fall short.
