We had lunch here and what a lovely vibe - super friendly hosts, excellent food and a great laid back atmosphere. Tucked away from the bustle. Well worth a visit.

Excellent meal. Last year was the same excellent. Attention to detail and great food. Our #1 spot in PA for a quick coffee, scrumptious breakfast or a filling flavorsome lunch! Well done again ladies!

In the morning I bring my laundry to service next door and then come for breakfast. Attentive staff and great food! Presented in a great way and the atmosphere inside is also to die for!

"Blondie" as she requested we call her has such a cute cafe with lots and lots of food options. Whether wine, coffee, a quick savory muffin or more, she takes very good care of us. Great environment and service.

This is my favourite coffee shop in Port Alfred. The cuppa-chino is the best, and the food is to die for!! C'est la Vie's presentation of their food is beautiful, and the Gigi and her staff very friendly. I can truly recommend them!
