Our bnb hosts at 138 Marine Guest House Hermanus recommended Coffee on the Rocks and gave us directions (take the first turning into De Kelders). It's simple, homely with lovely food and amazing views out across Walker Bay. Today the whales were all down in Hermanus but the views across the sea to the mountains were still worth it! The waitress was really friendly and the owner came by to chat and tell us the story behind the cafe. Well worth a visit.

This little restaurant is really located in a perfect place, with amazing views over the bay. We ate here during whale season and they were very active. Very friendly staff and a lovely, homely feel with lots of informative items for your perusal. The cake was great, I had a spicy cheesecake (cheesecake with cinnamon in other words) and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Their cakes seem rather popular as they had only two varieties left. Highly recommended!

Again visited Coffee on the Rocks this weekend. As usual we enjoyed it thoroughly with brilliant scones and chocolate cake, friendly service and a view to die for!

Guided here by our hosts at Saxon Lodge, we were pleasantly surprised. Lunch on the verandah of a beautiful house across from the bay. Creative menu items of which are deleted as they are run out. We had a wonderful couple of hours and could have stayed longer.
