What a lovely spot for a breakfast....feels almost like a place somewhere far away from South Africa ons a beachfront in some exotic place! Great choice of breakfast and light lunches and fantastic coffee!!!!!

This is one of my favourite spots for breakfast when business associates from out of town visit me. This time the service was really below par and maybe thats the reason the restaurant was not as busy as usual.

Really impressed with the service, beverages average. The main draw is free wifi and the view of the ocean. Did not try the food.

Good crumpets. Swiss oats.....not Bircher museli...just cold oats with grated apple, not recommended. Excellent bacon. Nice sea view.

Nice welcome – great view from our balcony table overlooking the sea – that was it – ordered Eggs Benedict with salmon (my favorite) – on the menu hollandaise sauce on my eggs a lumpy cheesy mustard concoction – my partner’s Spicy Cajun chicken salad was not much better – chunks not strips of chicken with a sour dressing –...

Delicious cappuccino... first on could have been hotter... second one was, as requested. Java Stack- perfectly poached eggs, bacon, avo, English muffins, cream cheese and pesto. All fresh, tasty and well presented. Price great too. Oh... the stunning view didn't hurt the experience either! Waitress Makhosi- pleasant; efficient and attentive. 10/10

Came here for a hot drink after a walk along the beach. We asked for a hot chocolate for our daughter, they said they couldn't make, as they didn't have the ingredients... the are situated above a supermarket, which sells cocao......! Food was OK, service was pretty bad.

We really loved the food we had there. Breakfast was good. Mid-morning coffee was amazing. We enjoyed both visits there.
