Visited this cafe just for a coffee and cake, it was delicious! There is a lot of choice and the prices are reasonable. The staff are friendly and helpful. Plenty of seating, it was nice and quiet upstairs compared to downstairs.

This is a quiet little venue that serves fresh cake and pastries. It is ideal for a morning or afternoon cuppa or a snack lunch. In historic centre of Simon's Town.

The pastry is so good. We had the scones, pecan pie, red velvet cupcake, passion fruit tart and apple nougat tart. They were all delicious but the apple nougat was our favourite! A must eat if you are in Simon's Town.
