Approximately 38 craft stalls from rural communities, ethnic groups and projects sell Namibian handicraft here, which range from jewellery to carved tree roots. We have the freshest Namibian food and best cheesecake and apple crumble in town! Our Craft Cafe is known all over the world for its stylish and excellent food. We support Namibian micro and small enterprises, and contribute to increase income through the sale of Namibian craft. Over 4,000 producers and their families derive an income from sales of their craft. We support Namibian design and product development, which is reflected in our large range of unique and quality products. We encourage the use of environmentally friendly products and sustainable utilization of Namibian natural resources. Vendors inside the Namibia Craft Centre may stock up to 5% of non-Namibian, but African handi-craft. No goods from outside the continent may be sold inside the Craft Centre. Some handi-craft and materials are hard to come by in Namibia, which is why we have made this concession. Staff should be able to tell you exactly the origin of most goods.

Great coffee, good menu, good service. Was a little disappointed with the Apple Crumble as it was not the same as it used to be, and the chairs are a little uncomfortable. But a great Namibian experience in a good and convenient location.

Good variety of African art and crafts, ranging from sculptures to figurines to painting. There is a cafe on the second floor that seemed like a good spot for a coffee or beer. There is a second section on the street level to the left...More

A definite place to visit on your trip to Windhoek. The cafe has excellent muffins and be sure to try to the ice tea made with rooibos and lemons. Delicious

It is an interesting place o visit and see the local crafts. I loved the jewelery made from ostrich egg. We found it really expensive.

You get several floors and the center is organized according to local association/ craft companies( woodcraft , garments, book, gems, ect....), it's a kind of fair trade organization. Judging if prices are competitive or not, I let everybody make his mind and for sure your...More

I loved their cafe and their terrasse. Gives a good idea of the local art, but you can't bargain the prices.

We found this craft centre to have some really beautiful things, but compared to other places in Namibia it is very expensive.
