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!

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).
