John Dory's Fish & Grill, Port ElizabethDuring one of my trips to Port Elizabeth I found myself in the vicinity of Walmer Park with an appetite and about an hour to kill, so I decided to have lunch at John Dory's. It's a generic shopping mall restaurant but scores points in my book for not having pretensions of being anything else. The meal was - to be honest, I don't remember too much about it, except that it didn't give me the trots and the portion was a bit on the stingy side. However, since this category is Cappuccino Quest and not Meal Quest, I had best focus on the task at hand, hadn't I?

I didn't have high hopes that a fish 'n' steak joint would be able to cobble together a decent cup of coffee, but I was pleasantly surprised by the restaurant's cappuccino-making skills.
