What a great find.. had a delicious lunch and returned the next day for breakfast. The restaurant is tastefully decorated with some quirky nice little touches which adds to the atmosphere. The food was excellent, nicely presented with some personal touches. Could spend hours here...More

"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!
