About
The one & only vegetarian and plantbased café in Hermanus. A little “lifestyle” eatery, situated in the tranquil & idyllic courtyard of the Walkerbay Art Gallery. Enjoy a fresh & delicious meal under the white stinkwood tree; or take a seat inside where the decor is a talking point. Our produce is seasonal, mostly organic, and locally sourced.

Simply the best bakery and coffee, only the choicest ingredients and dedication can provide these delectable delights in a daily basis... My favourites would have to include Financiers, croissants and chocolate torte..... The only problem is choosing which to enjoy😍😍. Also stockists of the tastiest...tofu, nuts, plant based milks and relishes #support localMore

My all time favourite restaurant. The conscious culture, adorable courtyard, backdrop of art, amazing staff and owners and scrumptious food make it so. As well as their bakery out front - it's become a Thursday morning ritual and real highlight of the week.

This is our 2nd visit to Hermanus and each time we plan to extend our restaurant experience and, instead, end up enjoying croissants and coffee at Gallery Cafe every single morning. The cheese and marmite croissant is an absolute winner as is the double Belgian...chocolate...and then there is the smoked cheese and tomato pastry....I could go on and on. But...TOMORROW I am definitely going to try the Eggs Benedict...(unless I decide to have a croissant again!!!). It is literally one of the reasons we holiday in Hermanus. Staff is friendly and helpful too 😃 and the setting is peaceful.More

Tranquil, cool, leafy and gorgeous cafe - and dog friendly. The food was delicious, nutritious and beautifully presented. The gallery features stunning artwork, including internationally renowned Ardmore and a personal favourite - bronze sculptures by Jaco Kruger.
