We went for breakfast as suggested by a previous reviewer. There was no sign of life at the Hame and no indication that the Gallery Cafe had been or is in residence. Please correct this if wrong but as far as we could see, the...previous reviews are wrong.More

The best cafe in town has moved to La Hame on Aberdeen Street. It is even better and offers evening meals in a stunning unique environment. Well worth the short walk.

Have loved coming here since it opened a few years ago. Please ignore the message that it is closed. The owners are trying to get this updated on Trip Advisor. The breakfasts, coffee and cakes are off the scale brilliant. We always love the high...quality of everything about The Gallery Cafe. This place is so much better than anywhere else on the High Street. Including the busy one! Do not hesitate give it a go. Amazing coffee too.More

Consistently excellent. The most incredible fluffy scrambled egg on the lightest freshest croissant is a true culinary experience. And we always LOVE their apple danish. Amelia, the owner, is awesome and all of her staff are exemplary. A true gem.

This is a little hidden gem of a restaurant/coffee shop. Everything served is made from scratch…..the best ingredients for sure delivers the best products! You can truly taste the goodness in every bite. You can’t leave Hermanus before you’ve tasted a cruffin - a decadent...blend of a croissant and a muffin. We stop there every time we visit from Canada and haven’t been disappointed once. The owner is a remarkable lady who loves to chat with her very loyal customers.More

Tasty food. I had the tumeric scrambled egg, and the croissant was particularly good and crispy and fluffy. Please add free wifi however!

Good morning Thank you so much for your kind review. We would love to add wifi, but with constant loadshedding, we have continuous problems with it. A problem which has become extremely challenging. Hope to see you again. Kind regards Emilia & team

The Gallery Cafe has the warmest/friendliest staff, the best coffee, and the freshest veggie brekkies and lunches in town. I absolutely adore the freshly baked GLUTEN FREE spinach and feta muffins. It is legendary! Also a great spot for remote working :-)

The food here is all homemade on the premises & presented so beautifully by very friendly staff. I have eaten here every day while visiting Hermanus & have loved every mouthful of delicious food. The croissants and baked goods are so light and the sourdough...bread is exactly as it should be. I can’t praise this cafe highly enough. Make sure you visit. It’s closed on Monday’s unfortunately. Don’t miss out.More
