Description: Cafe which serves freshly made food with wholesome ingredients ! We do use premix sauces or artificial flavourants. Our Lettuce comes from our own vegetable garden and is free from pesticides. We recycle as much as we can and use leftover coffee grouts on the garden. Tea bags are dried and used as blitz for fires/ orange peels are dried and used also as blitz. Leftover food waste is composted and also feeds the earth worms. We are different and believe that you should know what you are eating. So if you need more salt then the salt is there for you to add.

“Wonderful cheese cake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

Good atmosphere, a bit beyond the ordinary. Nice little menu, wonderful cheese cake. Portions vary tremendously in size - the bagel I had was so small that I still had plenty of room for the cheese cake, whereas the open sandwich was substantial enough for a light lunch. Food appears to be freshly prepared. Service good.

Thank you for your positive views. Yes, all our food is freshly prepared and as naturally as possible. The cheese cake is our most popular cake. Everything is baked in house. Our open sandwich is essentially a thick slice of bread under a salad as described on the menu. I hope the Bagel flavour made up for any disappointment in size. We do hope that you will visit us again!

“Bojos - the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

As a resident of Swakopmund I have the pleasure of visiting Bojos frequently. The welcome is always warm and friendly. I enjoy the atmosphere - whether seated inside or out. The cafe is spotlessly clean and comfortable. The food is attractively presented, healthy and tasty and the coffee just superb. Try the flat white! And, importantly for me, when sitting outside my dogs are just as welcome - often getting their bowl of water and a treat each even before my coffee arrives. AH

“Not the best that Swakopmund has to offer!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

Ate a quick lunch here on 23 Sept. & am still regretting it. Greasy chicken, bland potato salad, and grumpy, unsmiling servers--what's there to like? Maybe better for just coffee & a sweet, but not for actual meals.

Our staff try very hard but not always can you please everyone ! I must say that having been in this business now for four years we have met some very rude people.
Nothing is from a packet like so many other places. We make everything from scratch so salt & pepper to taste only, then it is up to the individual to add more if necessary, especially with the high rate of diabetes/heart condition etc in the modern way of life.
We are human and take unhappy customers complaints seriously. To make nasty comments without giving us the chance to rectify your unhappiness is not right.

We met some friends at Bojos Cafe and enjoyed a great breakfast. Very European feel with the outdoor seating. Small menu but nice selection and good quality.

“Bojos NO NO!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

After spending quite an amount of money at this very ordinary establishment we ordered another meal and two slices of cheesecake to take away. The food was packed neatly in a take-away container while the slices of cheesecake were jammed into paper bags! When we asked for proper containers the owner of the restaurant came out of the kitchen to fight with us. She refused to accommodate us until we eventually begged her to refund us for the ruined cheesecake slices we definitely weren't interested in anymore! I left the restaurant extremely disapointed that the owner couldn't see anything wrong with transporting soft cheesecake in paper bags!

There is no pleasing everyone though that is what we strive for so comments like this are taken seriously. We stand for: REDUCE, RE-USE, RECYCLE: all in support of reducing the carbon footprint. This was not appreciated in this instance and at that moment little helped to pacify the situation. The easiest is to succumb but we stand by our principles and this standpoint seldom allows situations to end amicably. We certainly don't aim 'to fight' our customers but when ones integrity is questioned then the old adage of "the customer is always right" bears little truth. We try hard, VERY hard! I invite this lady and her friend back to sit again for a few hours, enjoying the music, the steak stack and our friendly service on a Sunday morning.
