Over the last 25 years we've enjoyed many a light meal here on our visit to the area, and the service excellence remains. Impeccably neat, food fresh and tasty......a feel good place.

This coffee house is classic Germany in the middle of Africa. The cakes are good -especially the Apfelstrudel. The coffee not too strong to affect the usual elderly clientele. It is however a good meeting point right next to the lighthouse and the art market.

Cafe Anton is the place not to miss out on. If you visit Swakopmund you have to visit Cafe Anton for Breakfast or Cake and Coffee. Its is nice german spot with fantastic atmosphere. The bakkery is the best around with a nice breakfast. I have been visiting Swakopmund over many years and everytime I have to return to Cafe... More

Sit on the patio surrounded by palms, drink tea and eat a great piece of apple strudel - couldn't be more colonial.

Café Anton is a must on the itinerary for any traveller. They serve the best German style cakes and confectionery (most definitely not good for the waistline). It is a very popular spot and is situated close to the old harbour which provides a good opportunity to stretch your legs after gorging on the treats at the café.

We went here primarily to try the recommended apple strudel and food that it had many other options as well, Our friends also enjoyed there lunch. It is just a pity that they only serve brewed coffee.

For breakfast it was just ok. The eggs we adequately prepared, the bacon was not. The breads were ok for a bakery. They appeared to be more focused as a pastry shop than for breakfast. We would have gone elsewhere if time had allowed.

A real seventies-Germany restaurant which was fun to see. The coffee was good German filter coffee, not the Italian espresso variety we have become used to. The cakes were nice but nothing special. Service is indifferent and ordering from the counter is confusing. Difficult to find with all the one ways.
