While discovering the center of Swakopmund, Slowtown Coffee Roadters was perfect for an afternoon snack which consisted of a spinach quiche and a latte. Nice atmosphere and friendly service!

Best Coffee in town. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Bought beans and this will hopefully be just as good at home:)

Loved this place. Great place for a coffee or snack lunch where you can watch the world go by. And they offer oat milk and vegetarian food . Definitely recommend for a laid back snack lunch

I really like this place. Charming atmosphere. Coffee is good, and they had plant based milks for vegans which is very much appreciated.

We had a very enjoyable morning coffee visit to this restaurant, after visiting the Walvis Bay branch yesterday. Service was excellent, and staff members all very friendly and knowledgeable. The Cappuccino art was amazing, we had a poodle face and terrier face on our cappucinos,...which was amazing. And finally, the cheese cake was fantastic, although a bit pricey for such a small piece. Loved every bite!More

We had breakfast twice at Slowtown twice during our stay in Swakopmund. Their coffee is outstanding and so are their bagels and baguettes.

Very good coffee and a nice atmosphere. But what I do not understand: Why is it closed when people want to drink a coffee, e.g. Saturday afternoon or Sundays. We all know that it is a "Swakopmund standard" to close for peak hours or season,...but why?More

We concluded that this is definitely the best coffee joint in town, and that was BEFORE I saw the Tripadvisor reviews. The shop owner grew up in Swakopmund and roasts his own beans. We know this because we did the fat bike desert cycle ride...with his brother. Shortly after the start we could smell the roasting beans wafting up the Swakop river!! The outdoor seating is in a great location, the service is snappy the wifi is great and above all the coffee is great!More

Possibly the best coffee in town, great terrace, very helpful staff. The manager took five minutes to explain us the way to get to the old prison. Great place to spend some time when in the hood ! Really liked this place.... And before I...forget, the only place in Namibia up to now where we found decaffeinated coffee !More

Great coffee and service. My husband is somewhat of a coffee aficionado and he rated Slowtown Coffee as one of the best he has had anywhere. He even went to find their outlet in Windhoek when we were there. My kids loved their Mochas and...Hot Chocolates.More

They have a large outside seating area (well ventilated) as well as a cosy inside chill-room if you want to be more private. Beverages (this is primarily a coffee house) are well prepared and served reasonably quick too! You have to order at the counter...and then the staff will deliver. Service very friendly. Good view of street- and pedestrian traffic. For me one of the top stops for coffee and snacks in Swakopmund!More
