This cafe is owned by Englishman Will. He is a great character. Full of local advice and suggestions for what to see and when to go. For example if you wake in the morning and can see the top of Table Mountain then go up...More

It's tucked away from the general tourist haunts, we found it only because our B&B was close by. We used it as a stop-gap watering hole. The staff were chatty, which wasn't always the case. I can vouch for the cheesecake and my wife the...More

Came here for coffee and a small bite, so cannot comment on the menu/meals. Decent serviced, nice view, so little to complain about.

This was just up from our guest house so we visited twice, early on an evening (they close at about 8pm.) We had steak and the deli style chicken & bacon sandwiches and both were excellent, in quality, portion size and price. You can sit...More

We came here a few times due to the fact that there was not a restaurant within walking distance of our accommodation that only offered breakfast. They have a bar that serves wine and some alcohols, or you can buy a bottle of wine here...More

Will's was just down the street from the Acorn House where we were staying. It is not fancy but has a unique atmosphere and very friendly people. They have everything from fresh eggs to salads and premade sandwiches if you want to grab and go...More

Stayed just across the road in a B&B. Went to Will's several times. Great selection of food but we ordered 6 sandwiches to take away and there were only 5 when we opened the bag. They did replace the one that was missing. Another time...More
