Melville is famous for its abundance of restaurants, coffee-, book- and other shops that make it exciting to tourists and business people from all over South Africa and abroad. It is a residential area where scores of people from the arts, education, and media have been settling over the past half a century. This might be part of the reason that visitors describe people here extremely friendly and interesting.
