My wife and I were staying at an Airbnb nearby and dropped by one morning for breakfast. Wow! The baked goods were so good we went there every day that week to buy take out pastries and rolls. Some of the staff speak German and everyone was very friendly and helpful. We'll never forget the rolls and melt in your mouth croissants.

We had breakfast there a few times and the food was incredibly delicious! Everything is lovely arranged and absolutely fresh. The interior is nicely decorated and cosy. A great spot to enjoy coffee and have a relaxed time.
Highly recommended!

Possibly the best breakfast I've ever had in Cape Town. Authentic German bakery. Wow. Totally blown away. In a world overrun by commercialized crap, this place is just what we need. Thank you!

A peaceful little café with a nostalgic decor making it a very nice place to have a coffee with some great German cake or a soup and sandwich for lunch. I wish they had more Obst Torten as all the cakes on offer were Blechkuchen (think Streuselkuchen...). Coffee is excellent and one can buy fresh Brötchen, bread and free range eggs and a few items like coffee and Sauerkraut. Nice place.

The bakery and coffee shop are in a great converted house. The staff are friendly and kind and it is nice to see the various old style ornaments and traditional wooden toys.
We ordered coffees and breakfasts. The coffee is the Lavazza brand which was nice.
The breakfast itself was okay although the eggs were on the cold side.
Glad I experienced it but not a place that I feel I would like to visit again.
