We had our daily breakfasts in this restaurant for all our weeklong stay in Melville. Place is nicely decorated and the food , always freshly prepared. Excellent, attentive service. Breakfasts were tasty and very good coffee. It is not only patronized by tourists but locals (lots of families on weekends!) as well. We loved it !

Great service and surroundings and really good food. I had a delicious chicken and avocado salad which was really nicely presented and was excellent value for money. Unfortunately I was too full after it to experience the gorgeous-looking pastries!

This is a beautiful restaurant in the heart of old Melville. We had breakfast and we weren't disappointed. The food was great and the service was quick and friendly. We will definitely be back for more.

De La Creme makes the best cappucino at the best price... The atmosphere is relaxed and parking available during the day. Variety on the menu and a wide choice of specials offered, makes this a new taste experience with every visit. The courgette and bacon crumpets and the vegetarian wrap had flavours worth returning for. The baklava oozed honey nut... More

Absolutely love this little gem in Melville! Beautiful pastries and soft scrambled eggs and salmon. Cappuccino is a beautiful balanced one... Nothing like the milky weak cappuccinos you get these days- BIG BONUS TO ME!Lovely ambiance! You won't regret it!

We stayed at Saffron guesthouse and had a breakfast at this restaurant included in our room rate. The café is lovely, we had a wonderful table by a large window. Décor had a vintage feel, with a lot of the building's original features well preserved. They have a different menu for guesthouse patrons and other guests. The guesthouse menu was... More

Lovely bakery and cafe, right next to a second hand bookstore! Heaven! Lovely desserts and lots of hot and cold drinks to choose from. The red cappuccino (rooibos tea with foam) was interesting and worked well with the my pecan tart (on the too sweet side) served with yummy vanilla ice cream. I shall return someday!
