This place is adorable. The food is good and the pastries and cookies are delicious. The decor is simple yet lovely.

I ordered spaghetti and what they served me was a huge portion of such delicious, meaty spaghetti. I loved it! That spurred me to order green curry with jasmine rice for 'take-away.' I was not disappointed when I had it the next day (in my guesthouse). Total bill was R126-really affordable.

A cozy friendly bakery that turns out great meals. Seems to be a popular spot with locals and their laptops. Grab a bag of cookies to go.

This place is a real haven. Nice, high ceilings, delicious food. Great for breakfast, with cooked breakfasts including eggs Benedict and salmon, a wonderful range of sandwiches and a great collection of pastries.

A cosy, relaxed, welcoming restaurant/ coffee shop / bakery with sunny tables to enjoy a delicious breakfast on a winter's morning. Unfortunately, stars were lost in my review when I was asked to pay for a glass of warm lemon water, this after I had enjoyed an extensive meal!

A great place to enjoy a coffee and one of many awesome pastries available. I ordered something small and then sat there for 2 hours reading and writing. I was never rushed and was checked on to be sure I didn't need anything additional. While I was there alone, it seems like a great place to meet friends for a... More

Spent a number of afternoons at De La Creme reading my book and enjoying huge slices of cakes :)! I also had lunch there one day. Service was friendly and prompt. Food was delicious, of good quality and reasonably priced.

This is a bright, airy, casual restaurant. Staff were very friendly and never made us feel rushed when we sat for a couple of hours lingering over our coffee and journals. It was an extra treat to be brought complimentary bottles of chilled water. We went back several times and recommend it for a snack or a meal.
