Love going to this cafe on a hot day to sit in the quiet, cool, secluded courtyard under the vine covered pergola. This visit I had a yummy iced coffee and a croissant stuffed with scrambled egg. The service is always friendly.

We had a lovely lunch and some cake at CanD‘s. It has quite a charming atmosphere compared to the more touristy restaurants on the promenade. The service was extraordinary. Will definitely come back next time!

Cosy atmosphere inside and lovely garden outside. We had a great lunch, well presented, good quality food. Harvest table with different mains every day and fresh interesting salads. Small black board menu as well. Good coffee. Friendly service. Will definitely visit this restaurant again.

We regularly visit this coffee shop/bistro- often having breakfast there. The food is unpretentious, wholesome no delicious. Made with fresh ingredients, freshly baked bread and served with friendly enthusiasm, it can't be beaten! The coffee is excellent and the food quality consistently good. Their carrot...cake is to die for. Love this place, and the new owners and their team have reinforced everything that was good before.More

The harvest table offered a lovely variety of food at excellent quality and price. Interesting options, all very tasty. Scones are the best in town. Atmosphere and service were excellent.

Reviewed 5 June 2019

Late Saturday morning, we're the only table occupied. After at least 15mins we are informed that is no avocado for my breakfast, so mushrooms are requested instead. Two breakfasts eventually served, with the smallest poached eggs we have ever seen, balanced on small slices of...ciabatta with minimal servings of other items, and everything only luke-warm. The only item with taste was the caramalized onions. We could not be bothered to complain as there are so many other places in Hermanus, so we voted with our feet and left immediately.More

Popped in for brunch. Coffee was revolting. Ordered an omelette which turned out to be just as revolting, the "egg" was rubbery and tasteless. Sent it back and asked for scrambled eggs which arrived uncooked and slimey. Won't be coming back.More

Hi waynestevens2019. Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry if your visit was disappointing. Just a few notes on your review. Our eggs are normally softly scrambled, so I am sorry if you experienced this as "uncooked and slimy". I also just want to...More
