Absolutely our favourite place to eat in Hermanus. Gorgeous impeccably presented food (The Gallery Breakfast is sooo good!), in lovely peaceful setting. The staff were so accommodating of my baby and toddler and the owner is always so delightful. The bakery attached to it sells...the yummiest croissants too.More

The coffee drinks and croissants come from the coffee shop next-door which makes them by hand and all are excellent. The breakfast was fantastic and the ingredients were all very fresh and prepared and displayed nicely. Our soft spoken waiter Hulton did a fantastic job...with the service. I highly recommend this place.More

We arrived on a drizzly Sunday morning and the staff found an indoor table (but one with good airflow) for us right away. On a nicer day, it would have been lovely to sit at a table in the courtyard. The space is filled with...great art and has a wonderful, cozy ambience, tucked away as it is from the street. Friendly staff provided great service and we very much enjoyed our tasty eggs benedict (which was vegetarian - no meat). We also purchased several pastries to go at their bakery around the corner. They are famous for their croissants which come in a wide variety of flavors/fillings. They get snapped up pretty quickly so come early to make sure you get your first choice. There is a reason (many reasons, really) why this place is getting such rave reviews on Tripadvisor!More

What a wonderful experience we had at Black Medicine and Appetite Knight back when we visited Hermanus in April and promised we would be back again. We took a trip out for the day on Friday and were treated with such amazing service and hospitality....We had a chance to meet the amazing woman behind it all, such a gem! Thank you Emelia for the most tasteful, delicious and appetizing food, from starters, main meal and then dessert. I can’t wait to be back again.More
