Wonderful place to go Views , atmosphere , welcoming owner and staff and good food 5 stars++ Not licensed so take your own wine. Patrons start chatting to each other like old friends a restaurant with a difference . Well worth a visit.

A good lunch option on a nice day as the views are fantastic. Food is pretty good but the usual "lunch time" fare. We have been a few times - never had a bad meal but it is the views that bring us back.

There are not too many Cafés around but this one can definitely be recommended because of it's stunning view. The chocolate cake and the café latte were absolutely good as well!

Quaint, incredible view, good coffee. A little gem! Small menu, but daily specials are offered. Worth stopping at, even if just passing through.

Great position on the seafront and good coffee. However the ambience was lacking with no hello, no goodbye and very little sign that customers were welcome. After six weeks in South Africa with generally great food and service, we were underwhelmed by the highish prices, poor service and smallest piece of cake yet! As a sample the cake was good,...

The terrace is enchanting, directly on the ocean. The service is good and the food of high quality. It is probably a bit expensive.

Admittedly we arrived just before closing (they close at 5pm) and we were desperate for a cup of tea and cake. The reception wasn't too good but they did manage to let us have a cup of tea - no cake as it was supposedly finished for the day - must have been good. The view and the set up... More

Managed to get a table with a great view of three whales, performing a show. Great place to see the whales and nice wine also.
