We stoped at this lovely place for coffee and some cake. We were pleasantly surpeised by the very friendly staff and owner. The coffee is the best we had in Gansbaai and the Cheese Cake was sooooo good! My husband had the fresh baked scones...and my daughter the carrot cake. Food waa beautifully presented. I biught some preserves and suryp which I forgot there....the next morning we went back to see if it was still there and was so sirprised to find the owner waiting for me with my products. So friendly. Will most definetly visit them again.More

When we arrived, three ladies with hairnets were sitting in the restaurant creating a pristine impression that was just off the mark, missing the homeliness and coziness one would expect. The food was good even though the menu was very uncreative (all the usual one...would get at a place like this in South Africa) but the art on the wall is refreshing, albeit not very daring. To be served by a lady with a hairnet is not my cup of tea, but if you are concerned about hygiene and don't want too adventurous food, this is your spot.More

We eventually got round to having lunch here. Our food was scrumptious to the very last bite. The salad was freshly made & the coffee excellent. The prices are totally affordable. This coffee shop is nice & bright & like a breath of fresh ocean...air. We will be definitely be back.More

Nice bright, clean coffee shop in the main road. Limited menu, but the staff went out of their way to serve us a breakfast that suited us. Service was good and meal was nicely presented. Will pop in again when passing by.

This is a cosy little coffee shop that’s perfect for a quick coffee and something light to eat. It’s on the main road into Gansbaai with easy parking outside. Friendly people and good service.
