This is set in an ugly modern building which took us by surprise. We were looking for an old building! We had good coffee here and ok pastries. The apple pastry was lacking in apple, but has lots of pastry! Pleasant enough area to sit...More

On a Sunday afternoon, it is always nice to have the traditional coffee and cake at this age old restaurant. Local Swakopmunder usually have something small to eat to reload the "batteries" with something sweet to take on the next working week.

The coffee and cakes were exceptional! Eye candy for any cake and pastry lover. We had 4 different cakes and shared it and all 4 were excellent. The staff is very friendly and suggest this as a must visit!

We were planning on only having coffee but once we entered we realised we could not miss out on the baked goods they had to offer. Delicious food, fabulous service and the best coffee I've had in Swakopmund. Definitely worth a visit.

We stopped in for a light breakfast. The cappuccino was terrible, the sandwiches were average and the surroundings very dated. At least the service was attentive
