Need I say more! Yes, it even has a sea view, it is family friendly, and a gift shop! We loved it! Had I known about this gem, I would have come here for breakfast and lunch every day! 🤩

Great little place in the heart of Mosselbay. You won’t find better coffee in this town. Nice eats also on offer and very friendly service awaits.

Great little spot as well, I enjoy their tea and had a few snacks before. Bacon, Banana and Syrup Croissant was great as well! Gerro is always there as well and makes you feel right at home!

Only had coffee-to-go, great coffee and friendly service. Interior is tastefully decorated, owners flair for art can be seen :-) and looks like a vibey place to sit and have your coffee fix as well.

One of few places that serve decent coffee. Popped in just before their closing time (4pm) and managed to still order a small lemon meringue. Great. Will be back again to sample some more/different eats.

Great place to stop for Breakfast or Lunch, although it did not always seem to be open. When I went there for Breakfast had no complaints, although I had to go to a nearby clothing store when I needed to go to the toilet

Great coffee shop, people with a passion to serve the best coffee. The atmosphere is a unique one, one that makes you want to be there all day. Awesome small gifts to buy and fast wifi so if you want to serve the web. ☕️
