Our Story


Voodoo Lily Café, will be under new ownership as of the 1st of August 2015. In honouring the vision of Voodoo Lily Café for what it was started by its original owners, Jonathan will focus on ensuring that it continues to offer fresh, wholesome and delicious food to the guests along with a fun-filled, delightful family experience to the community that we serve.


Meet The Beatties

The Beattie family moved from Cape Town to Johannesburg in December 2011. We were very blessed to find a lovely family home in Birdhaven and we fell in love with the area with its beautiful trees and birds. Voodoo Lily Café was one of the first places where our family started engaging with our new community – it has just opened its doors for the first time at the end of 2011 as well; and we had lovely, wholesome meals there too.

We're all about Family

Voodoo Lily Café is a great family restaurant. Our goal is to ensure that each guest receives prompt, professional and friendly service and have exceptional dining experience.

Families are important to us and we believe that it forms the core of any community – Voodoo Lily Café will therefore specifically strive to make it an environment where families feel welcome and want to come back to, time and time again.


As a family, we believe in living life in a simple, wholesome manner. We strive to instil the values of discipline, sustainability and care for those around you into the lives of our three daughters, Petruné, Esna and Jonlyn. – The Beattie Family
