Food here is very unique with vast selection of fresh and healthy dishes. I had Tofu Salad which was very tasty.

“Our favorite cafe in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014 via mobile

We lived in Windhoek during 2009, and have continued to return. This cafe is touristy because it is attached to the Craft Market, but it could exist by itself. Wonderful salads and smoothies. Interesting smoked kudu. It was a hangout for us at all times of year. Service in Namibia is slow. Don't plan for a quick affair! You are in Africa, darling....leave your fast paced world behind and enjoy the view and the birds stealing crumbs from your bread and the breeze and the shade. And, don't be afraid to ask for the ticket when you are ready...that's how it works in Namibia....would be rude to give it to you before you ask. And, END with dessert. Apple crumble is awesome.

“Location and salads are good - service a disaster”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

Well, I guess most tourists visiting Windhoek pass by this cafe since it is located in the craft center occupying an old brewery.The craft shops are nice and the cafe is located in the first floor. Nice location actually and a good place to have a salad or late. However, the service is very slow and it may take ages until someone take note of you. Ask for the bill at least 20 min before you intend to leave. All dishes look fancy, but had a sandwich there (Italian salami, sun-dried tomatoes) which was terrible.

“Great milk coffee”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

This is a cute little restaurant - health food lovers will enjoy this one.
Their milk coffee is the best.
Situated in Windhoek's craft centre will add to the fun experience.
