About
Heidi's cafe is a rustic, comfortable, homely little spot to hang out after a early morning surf, time on the beach, or to just come enjoy some simple, good food. We specialise in breakfasts, coffee, smoothies & home baked treats. The entrance to the cafe is from Foreshore Drive, at Anstey's Beach Backpackers. Find us just past reception above the swimming pool. Any questions just call. Please also note that we are not a fast food restaurant. Our kitchen is little and all our food is made to order with love, so please be patient with us during busy times :)

You get what you pay for. An adage that's mostly true, but occasionally you find something that's just stupidly overpriced, like a Damien Hirst piece, or something that's wonderfully underpriced for what it's worth. Today, escaping the power cuts; breakfast was at Heidi's. Been there a couple times, it's a nice place. My meal, the Bluff Breakfast, was a great choice. Eggs, bacon, wonderfully spicy wors, great coffee. Very nice. All the things that make a nice, easy breakfast, into a very nice, great value, "i'll be back again" kind of easy breakfast were there. The place is pretty cool; outside tables to make the most of the beach sun and breeze, lots of quirky little things stashed around the inside area, where there are more tables, a couple of extra comfortable chairs to lounge in. And, washing through it all, like the tide through the rock pools just a little bit away, a feeling of unhurried, friendly, welcoming, casualness. A great place to relax, great little meals, friendly people, a really nice spot to reccommend to visitors wanting a casual, no fuss, beach spot in Durban away from the crass commericial options.

Our office chose Heidi's Cafe in the Bluff as a venue for our Boss's Farewell Breakfast. We drove all the way from Hillcrest, (about a 45 minute drive away), simply because Heidi's Cafe in the Bluff serves the best breakfast in Durban. If you are looking for a little spot of Thailand in Durban, make sure you visit Heidi's Cafe in the Bluff for a breakfast. The enormous cappuccino is called a swimming pool. The food is excellent and fresh, and the service is exceptional. Congratulations to Heidi and her team. Ten stars for you.

The caramel sauce is too die for, Them smoothies are amazing especially if you want to be healthy or have a hangover. Food is awesome. Service is great. Very cosy and laid back

Heidi thinks of everything. Giant cuppacinos, amazing breakfast combos and comfy chairs in a great setting. Best enjoyed with friends. Good networking opportunities!

Probably THE best cappuccino that I’ve ever had. Combined with great staff and a sense of relaxation- it’s a must visit place on the Bluff.

Heidi's Cafe is a perfect little nook for those who want to get away from the busy suburban life. The food is amazing and affordable and the sea views are outstanding. It's a lovely place to go for breakfast.

From the time we stepped into the entrance. The young gentleman with a hair bun was very welcoming. The place, the service and graffiti around the pool area really stole my heart. I felt very welcomed and loved the atmosphere. The team that works behind the counter are polite and welcoming. I and the ladies I was with really had a good relaxing time. it's refreshing, out of the busyness and the fresh beach breeze is what we needed. I don't know the owner but hey, whoever you are. You hired the best team and thank you so much :) I am def coming back.

Tucked down a little lane off the main beach road is a quirky little cafe. The decor is off beat and surf-related but the waitrons need to learn the value of positive and efficient customer engagement. It took over 35 minutes for them to serve us all four ordered drinks - none arrived simultaneously and in fact the last drink arrived after the food arrived. Really poor service! Quite frankly: The waitrons are fat too busy sucking or chewing on lumps of ice and making eyes at men from the local back backers to care about their paying guests. Breakfast when it finally arrived was simple and tasty. But we will not be rushing back for another meal! Bronwyn and the Heidi Cafe team - the hospitality industry requires efficient, effective quality service if you want repeat business!

This is a small 'eatery' at surfer's paradise near the beach (Bluff, Durban), B & B accommodation etc. Early morning breakfast was really good - ideal after your run on the beach, or after having caught some good waves.

Lovely atmosphere and great coffee. My toasted sandwich could have had a bit more pizzazz, but it was ok. The breakfasts are pretty standard. Nice experience all round.

A birthday breakfast venue that is really special! Its a favourite haunt of the Surfers from the area and the menu is definitely within budget. The food and refreshments are presented in good time and taste great. The lady that owns the establishment is efficient and friendly. Two minutes walk from the main beach but also with safe parking and plenty of seating. Really great and glad we went there - definitely a hit with the locals. Open in the mornings.
