What a fantastic place. Quirky fun, friendly, and the best of all the food is superb. As we had booked an Air BNB which did not have cooking facilities we opted to seek food elsewhere. Whilst exploring the town we came across this gem. I...can not recommend this place enough. Definitely go and experience itMore

Excellent food in a colourful setting. Many locals - including our family - eat here and do so regularly - which is a recommendation in itself .

Excellent service and cheerful waiters. The food is good and reasonably priced. Can be a bit of a wait if they are busy but that’s to be expected and since you are on holiday it doesn’t matter 😀 Great choice for breakfast or lunch Very...nice garden section through the back of the CafeMore

We asked our guide at Fat Bike Tour Swakopmund where we should go in town for a good coffee- without hesitation he said “Village Cafe” and no wonder! Great coffee, a delicious choice of food and superb, friendly service. If only we had room for...one of their cakes. Don’t miss Village Cafe!More

The Village Cafe in Swakopmund is located in the center of town and a good place to enjoy a light meal or grab a cup of coffee at. The cafe has both indoor and outdoor seating: the indoor area is cozy, and the outdoor seating...is decorated in a colorful village style. A friend recommended that I try the Melkkos (directly translated to Milk Food), a traditional South African sweet dish predominantly made with milk, sugar, flour, and cinnamon. I'm glad I did, because it was delicious! They really did the dish justice as it was sweet and creamy and perfect for a colder day in Swakopmund. Although I only tried the Melkkos, their menu has a nice variety of other dishes as well including some specialty coffees. Initially the service was a bit average, but the manager came over and made the experience better. She was friendly and attentive, and ensured that we had everything we needed. Overall, if you are looking for a café to relax in after exploring what Swakopmund has to offer, I can definitely recommend visiting The Village Café, especially to try the Melkkos.More

This is a really funky cafe that is worth a stop just for the interesting decor. The service was excellent. It is easy to miss and doesn't look that great from the outside but the inner court yard and surrounds are great.

We were referred by locals to the Village Cafe for a real Namibian experience. This was an excellent brunch, amazing staff and vibe. The portions were a good size and well prized. Was lovely to see many locals around

The staff are very welcoming and friendly. As soon as we walked in we were immediately assisted in finding a table. The place was quite busy with customers -popular place. Even though it was full the service was very fast - we barely had to...wait for anything. The menu offers a wide range of breakfast and lunch meals. I quite liked the decor and ambience - it's quirky and fun.More

We just had coffee's at Village Cafe, but everyone was very friendly and the service was fabulous. It was a pity we had already had breakfast as I would have loved to have tried a couple of things on their menu.
