We had a huge variety of dishes in our party of 6, from the very buffet healthy table (priced by weight), to full breakfast omelets, potatoes and meats. Great atmosphere, coffee, quality food and service.

Local Eatery in Hout Bay. Great friendly service and wonderful food. Buffet for lunch is a hit. Granadilla Tart for afternoon Tea. Ask for the Earl Grey Leaf Tea - Killer. Loads of regulrs and WiFi make it a handy "office".

Needed wifi because of a failed booking for accomodation and were tipped this cute place. Perfect coffee, fast wifi and great food. The healthy bowl with quinoa was boring thats the only critic!
