We came across this really interesting vintage style coffee shop, in the Main Road in Lamberts Bay, and decided to pop in for brunch. The menu looked good, but having waited almost 45 minutes just for coffee, we decided not to eat as we were...worried as to how long we’d have to wait. It wasn’t dreadfully busy, but I’d say they were short of serving staff. The menu included various beverages, a breakfast menu, light meal etc. If it hadn’t been for the long wait, I’d have given a higher rating.More

Travelled to Lamberts Bay from further down the coast for the day. Found this lovely little tea rooms on the cross roads for lunch. Although near a main road the garden area was peaceful and tranquil. The owner and staff were friendly and very welcoming...and the food of a very good standard.More

We had lunch here on a drive down the west coast. A surprisingly diverse menu. "Cute" Alice in Wonderland theme. We enjoyed the food, and very reasonable prices.

Having done a day trip to Lambert's Bay from Langebaan, and stopping off at various places along the way, we were thrilled to find this little gem as a welcome coffee and cake stopover. This was more than just a refreshment break. From the beautifully...painted wall murals on the outside, to the inside murals, quirky hatstand, and other interesting decor, this was a truly delightful stop. The baked cheesecake and Mozart cake can be highly recommended. We enjoyed a good cup of Moerkoffie with condensed milk, and filter coffees, instead of our usual cappuccinos. And the various items for sale from various home industries just added to the enjoyment of the visit. And one more added bonus - the restrooms are beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. This was the cherry on the top of our visit to Lambert's Bay.More
