We had a lovely breakfast and sampled some of the nice coffees. It is not a great setting with a very busy road running past it, but the food is tasty.

Dario and his vibey friendly staff serve the best Italian coffee in Cape Town. Also an extensive menu of breakfasts, lunches and snacks all delicious. A daily hangout for Hout Bay locals with lots of friendly banter.

Enjoyed a pleasant breakfast with good coffee, and the service was good- very friendly staff. The setting wasn’t great, and it was difficult to park, but otherwise would recommend a visit if passing.

We had breakfast here just before Christmas. Food was really good, the owners take a personal interest in the customers and service, and the waiters were excellent, though they were a bit rushed off their feet that morning!
