“Great coffee and food in a relaxed oasis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

The shop front looks just like all the other shops but when a waitress leads you out to the courtyard you enter a relaxing oasis of wooden tables and sign boards with whity phases. The coffee, home-baked cakes and open sandwiches are all very good. To top it off the staff are friendly and sometimes sing.

“So Yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

We were only in Swakopmund for a few days but ended up here twice for lunch.
The outdoor seating out back is really cute. The service was flawless and the blueberry milkshake was AMAZING.

“Huge Huge Cakes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

party of us arrange to rendezvous here for coffee. its a quirky place with some great art if you look carefully on chairs and tables and so on.
we opted for the human menu and not the dog one - as I said quirky; and had coffees and cakes all round. The portions were huge, being used to cheesecake at a maximum of an inch high, a portion was over 5 inches high, as were all the cakes. Smiles all round.

Free WiFi is available; its worth connecting just to find out the password. Bet you smile when you hear it :-) - quirky !

I tried to back the next day, but just arrived as they were closing, they offered to stay open, but I declined the offer, it was Sunday after all. As you can guess the staff are very friendly and smile all the time - Great place. Highly recommended

“Great place to get lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

The Village Cafe has a lovely courtyard where you can enjoy lunch in peace and quiet. Burgers are especially tasty. The menu also offers a variety of vegetarian options, as well as a special menu for dogs. The white chocolate rooibos drink is outstanding!
