A beer called. The sea needed watching. We combined the two. Perfect location. Got the munchies so had a delicious toasted sandwich.

Situated on the Umhlanga promenade. Safe and secure parking. Staff very helpful and professional. Great for early morning coffee and breakfast. Open at 07h00. Great for drinks. Beautiful view of the Indian Ocean.
