I was randomly driving past this place while looking for accommodation and was pleasantly surprised. Great selection of coffees to choose from (I recommend the house blend), and a nice little selection of cakes. The carrot cake was delicious.

A very rustic coffee house atmosphere I wouldn't expect to find in a small South African beach-side town.

If you really crave an excellent and personal cup of coffee you need not look further than the Blue Shed. Since their opening this past December I have finally found my most enjoyable and relaxing down to earth spot where I can just enjoy my coffee. The rustic environment just adds so much to the ambience of this once railway mechanical shop which became a loving coffee roastery. The roasted bean smell in the middle of town attracts you to the ever so friendly girls serving this freshly roasted Java. In this short space of time they have gone international with their roasts confirming the fact that we are so fortunate to have them right here in Mossel Bay. For those reviewing this idyllic gem of Mossel Bay, remember it is not a restaurant, its a relaxing coffee drinking experience.
Keep up the good work girls!! You are the best!!

We went to this Coffee-Roastery this morning.
It was cold and raining so we thought this would be a great place to warm-up.

Unfortunately, the atmosphere and welcome was as cold as the weather outside.
There was NO service at all and we had to go and ask how one goes about to just order a cup of coffee.
We also wanted to get a bite to eat, but the quiche and cakes on the stand was just so full of ants, we had to also let that idea go.
Most clients walked out since no one wanted to help them.
My husband DON’T drink coffee, and thought it well to treat me to this place and have a cup of his own…really such a pity it was such an awful experience for him.
I know the vibe is supposed to be relaxing with some chilling, but friendliness costs NOTHING.
If you don’t want to word on ‘n Public Holiday, then don’t open your doors.

I would first of all like to apologize that your first experience at the Blue Shed did not live up to expectations.

Here at the Shed we have a self-service setup with a big board inside and one outside which asks customers to please come place their orders and pay at the front. On your review however we will be making this clearer with some table talkers to avoid leaving customers confused in future.

The problem with the ants has been dealt with; we agree not acceptable We would like to invite you and your husband to come have a coffee on us next time you are in town

We have very many happy customers and would love to make you one of them.
