There are not too many tranquil places like this, where you can watch a calm sea and only a light breeze and frolicking whales with barnacle studded heads cause some waves on its surface. Manicured lawns and bush fill up the space between the cafe and the sea and add to the pastoral atmosphere.
Inside the furniture, cupboards, sitting corners and trinkets exude an early 20th century atmosphere.
Out of season this watering place is not opened all days of the week, so check out in advance.

An obvious choice when visiting De Kelders, which is no longer the best kept secret of the Overberg. Best whale watching while relaxing and enjoying a delicious cake and coffee, followed by a lovely lunch. The best is....the cakes are fresh and all baked there. Service friendly and efficient

I went for coffee and cake and really enjoy it. The staff were friendly and quick. You have a beautifull view over the sea and rocks. Very relaxing.
