“Good food, large portions...”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

We stopped by here during an afternoon stroll through Swakop. From the front it doesn't look like much, however there is a large outdoor seating area at the read which is perfect for an afternoon drink and a late lunch.

The staff were very attentive and friendly making sure we had everything we needed. I ordered something called a terminator 3 ... which I believe to be a bacon and egg sandwich. Little did i know, the bread is about 5 inches thick and as big as a laptop screen ... The plus side being that the food was very good and if you are looking for a pitstop for an afternoon bite ... I suggest you stop here!

“Great spot for a snack, afternoon tea or whatever!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

From the moment we saw the sign in the window
'We open when we get here and close when we leave' I knew this was the right place for us.
The courtyard seating is lovely and dogs, cats and children are expected to be kept under control at all times - love it!
Both the carrot cake and the milk tart were extremely good and the service prompt and smiling.
Superb coffees and a choice of teas, perfect.
The sign at the till says, 'don't rush us we are local' and you won't want to rush away.

“Experience the vibrancy of Africa!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

My favourite place for brunch when visiting the coast of Namibia!
The most friendly staff and delicious unique menu.
The African vibes echoes throughout the decorations right through to the food. A must try!
