That Spot On 4th is the brainchild and culinary baby of Chef Zané. After finishing high school, she was at a loss for what to do with her life. With no interests other than food, Zané left her childhood home in Pretoria for the Institute of Culinary Arts in Stellenbosch. After three grueling years, she graduated in a class of five. Specialising in product development, she went on to work for Woolworths' largest supplier in Cape Town. Two years later, with only a dream and the support of her parents, Zané set out to open her own restaurant.
That Spot On 4th is Parktown North's latest foodie hot spot. With awesome breakfasts, hangover waffles and an extensive wine list, there is something here for any taste palate.

The lunch menu pulls from a variety of cuisine influences, including Mediterranean, Asian and French. Reflecting the diversity of our time, That Spot On 4th also caters to Banters, vegetarians and those with gluten intolerance. While we could wax lyrical about all their great menu options, we think it's best that we skip right to That Spot's specialty menu. Featuring the infamous Hangover Waffle topped with Spanish chorizo, caramelised onion, mozzarella cheese, rosa tomatoes and a fried egg. If this doesn't cure your babbelas, then we don't know what will!
Other tasty additions to the specialty menu include Rice Paper Rolls with homemade sweet chili dipping sauce. Order yours stuffed with chicken, salmon or veggies. Next up is the Satay Rice Bowl - combining the traditional flavours of nutty Satay with carrots, spring onion, sesame seed sprinkle and sticky jasmine rice. Even if you aren't a vegetarian, we recommend ordering your bowl with roasted cauliflower instead of chicken. The roasted flavour pairs perfectly with the undertones of coconut in the Satay sauce, plus it's good for you.
We all need a little sweetness in our lives, so why not indulge at That Spot On 4th? Their sweet waffle selection is to die for, with flavours of lemon meringue, maple, choc chip and caramel apple.
