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.
