Good value for money, we enjoyed various meals and all were well presented, tasty and enjoyable. They were even gracious enough to make us their TO DIE FOR pancakes on a Saturday afternoon just before they closed.

We have been going to Savannah Café since it opened in it's previous location closer to the beach and have always loved their food and service. A definite place to stop for a bite.

Had lunch here after a walk round Hermanus....so glad we found this 'tucked away' cafe. Delightful old South African building with history that has been beautifully restored. We can thoroughly recommend the cakes, fabulous pancakes and ciabatta sandwiches....we all enjoyed everything. Well worth a visit!

I absolutely love the frittata I had at Savannah Cafe in Hermanus! With exactly the right amount of sweet and savoury I wish I could have it every day!

I've had one breakfast at Savannah Cafe: pleasant location, also good for a break while shopping and walking around Hermanus centre. We could sit outside, which was shady and lovely. Sardines on toast with tomatoes and herbs was a lovely start of the day. Good service.

Having not been able to get into 2 nearby restaurants, we reluctantly tried Savannah ..... And what a wonderful surprise. The restaurant has new owners and we have noticed fewer people since the take over and wrongly assumed it was no good. Nothing could be further from the truth! After a warm welcome by Cathy, our very competent and friendly... More

I popped in to have a quick breakfast. I waited very long to get any attention. I waited even longer to get the breakfast. Pathetic I say for a restaurant so well situated.

We normally don't decide on the first restaurant we get into, but the hostess was super friendly and attentive and explained in detailed how she could change the menu to sit or taste (vegetarian).
