“Cozy”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Very friendly little cafe. Great for trendy coffees, breakfasts, breads and pastries but cool with kids too. Hyper friendly and just across from charming Dalebrook Tidal Pool.

“Great ambiance!”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Fresh fruit, good muesli and coffee, great breads! (the croissants do taste right, but a real French croissant is much lighter and flaky). We loved having breakfast in the morning and enjoyed the show of early morning bathers coming dripping wet but full of fresh and healthy energy. Energy and good mood shared by the owner and all her staff.
We highly recommend the place which is doing very well for itself already!

“Kalk Bay's best kept secret”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

An authentic bakery serving freshly baked artisanal breads and pastries. Their coffee and freshly squeezed juices are equally delicious. The menu offers a variety of simple dishes for breakfast and lunch, using only the freshest of ingredients and all beautifully presented on wooden boards. C'est la Vie is probably Kalk Bay’s best kept secret and a firm favourite with the locals.
