We dropped in here recently and thoroughly enjoyed good coffee and a slice of something sweet. Sit at the counter outside to enjoy the local vibe. Service is friendly and efficient.

We ate breakfast here several times during our stay in Capetown. The food was fresh and delicious and very reasonably priced. The staff were always very friendly and accommodating. On the last day we bought some cakes to take away and they were delicious!

The egg and bacon sandwiches are pretty good. A gluten free option is also available. They also sell a delicious chocolate marshmallow bar.
