One of the best coffees I have had! Nice place to sit and enjoy it. Good for buying beans too. I will definitely be back.

Our regular go to coffee house. The BEST tasting capuccino's anywhere. It's roasted on site and in spite of the many coffee houses in CapeTown supposedly boasting world class coffee, this remains unbeaten in my family's opinions. Don't expect a smart city slicker coffee shop...vibe, it's rustic, villagey, and rough around the edges decor, but the coffee is incredible.More

Had a cappuccino that tasted like a blended ricoffee. Disappointed due to a very poorly made cappuccinno, absolutely no flavour.

A little bit hidden away but great when you find it. Yes the locals all know about it and it does a good trade in selling coffe beans and ground coffee. The ambience is very rustic and that is the charm of this small establishment....A very wide choice of coffees and cakes/pies to go with it. Hvae visited it a few times during stay in Hout Bay and will definitely be going again when next in SAMore

Everytime when we're in Southafrica we're planinig our Tour in that way, that we have time to visit minimum once during the trip the cozy Houtbay Coffee. This time we are stranded in Llandudno because of the Lockdown. But we found Houtbay Filtercoffee at the...Spar in Houtbay. So the cup of Coffee helps us getting along the boredom. Thanks to the lovely owners and employees. We're sure coming back again to your wonderful,relaxing place. Stay healthy Susanne and Jörg / GermanyMore

Generally looks like an old fisherman’s shack, part of its appeal! Quality of produce is its hallmark, first rate and good service.

Luckily we discovered the shop during a quick stop in Hout Bay, having followed the smell of roasting coffee! I've worked for a large commercial coffee roaster and, on holiday, love to go and visit artisan roasteries. Paul, the master roaster, found me oogling his...roasting shed and was so kind in spending his time talking coffee with an over-excited tourist! The coffee shop is beautiful, quirky and vintage, and the coffees (their Harbour blend) were very good. I also bought four other roasts in whole bean (easier for travelling) and Paul ground up some more of the Harbour blend for the Aeropress which we bought. I know that I am a coffee geek, and if you are too, this is a gem of a place. Equally, if you just want a good cup of coffee, served by friendly and knowledgeable staff in a lovely location and with a great choice of cakes, this is the place for you. Next time I am in Hout Bay, I will be back!More

My wife and I hit this place every time we are in Hout Bay. The cappucino and moist orange cake are to die for. I think it's about time to head over there again today.
