Delicious food

Delicious fish cakes, and scrumptious waffles! The service is always great, everyone is friendly and helpful. Perfect spot to eat as it is central.

Good food convenient to the shopping center. Nice old building. They have great soups and a fireplace for those cold days. My only complaint is that you walk in and see a wall of delicious homemade jams but when you order a scone you get little airplane packets of jam. They should be ashamed!

Disappointing....! Favourite Sago pudding not on menu anymore... Restaurant has lost it's welcoming and inviting spirit! Service was shocking - restaurant was nearly empty, wasn't as if it was peak time at all. New owner will have to pull up her socks. Will not go back for sure. 👎

The Savannah used to be one of the best places to go in Hermanus for breakfast or lunch. Even when it was forced to move from its prime position on the sea front, loyal customers followed it into the town centre because the food and ambience were so good. Now it has changed hands and is a disaster, with no... More

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!
