We just had coffee's at Village Cafe, but everyone was very friendly and the service was fabulous. It was a pity we had already had breakfast as I would have loved to have tried a couple of things on their menu.

Loved having breakfast here! The food is good and comes in generous portions, plus the atmosphere is somehow uplifting. Staff looks happy and it feels! :)

A small cafe with very friendly staff. The food is great with very generous portions. Service can be a bit slow, so do leave some time. Great value for money.

The outside doesn't look much but it's really worth venturing inside and through to the back. It's a quirky little place with a relaxed atmosphere. We sat outside and enjoyed a nice lunch. Menu was good, staff were friendly and welcoming. Well worth a visit....We would definitely come back.More

If you follow the advice to start your day with a good breakfast then this is the place to go. Six of us loved getting breakfast here a couple of days in a row. There's a very extensive menu--lots and lots of options: traditional English...and southern African, omelettes, egg dishes, pancakes.....and lots of good coffee. Over the two days we sampled many of the dishes and no one was disappointed. Everyone had a hearty breakfast. My wife said the cappuccinos were fantastic. There's something here for everyone. There's even a menu for dogs and we took the liberty of buying a breakfast for a stranger's dog! The friendly staff make it all the more enjoyable. The atmosphere is very friendly with funny signs/admonitions on the walls. There's indoor and outdoor dining and wifi is available. It's easily located in Swakopmund.More

May 2022 - visited for breakfast. The Village Cafe was a great place to eat. Friendly and unpretentious service, excellent coffee, cozy atmosphere. My partner and I enjoyed coffee, ham and cheese toastie, and a breakfast wrap. Menu has something for everyone. We are staying...at the nearby Swakopmund Luxury Suites and they provided breakfast vouchers for several local cafes. We asked around and several locals said this was the best choice. Hard to disagree! Absolutely loved this place - no problem giving a recommendation. Great food and service.More

Quaint and authentic decor on the Main Street with excellent service and a vast breakfast menu. Our waiter was brilliant as was my eggs, bacon and borewors. Great coffee as well.

Amazing and super friwndly staff. Absolutely delicious food. Greqt atmosphere. Comfortable setting. Pwt friendly. In the centre of town and easily reachable, yet once you're inside, you are in a different world. Just love this place and ANYONE visiting Swakopmund, cannot say they experienced Swakop,...unless they've been here.More

Always a good place to visit just drop in for that quick cup of tea/coffee - rest the feet between shopping - meet a friend for a bite to eat - lovely atmosphere. One can enjoy a great breakfast or some homemade cake. Very popular...for many years with the locals. Visit them on a regular basis.More

There are great seating ath the rear part of this great place with wonderful staffs. The guys and gals who work here are the smiling lot. Only thing is that we ordered some food that warranted an acquired taste. Otherwise, would have given 5/5. Only...4/5 this time.More

From the outside it looks like a small café and then you start to walk through. Wow! What a gem of a place! The atmosphere and the food is great and the staff is so friendly. Thank you Sida for making our unexpected lunch date...into a wonderful experience. The place cleared out long enough for us to snap a few pics. Love this place. We will be back!More
