This is a nice place to visit. I wasn't impressed with the breakfast menu but the lunch menu was nice.

Nice spot for lunch but does get very busy around 1:00. They have nice salads, wraps, smoothies, coffee and muffins which they call scones. Service is usually a little slow, but they are nice.

We stopped in for a break while doing the Craft Centre. Lovely coffee, and the Lemon and Ginger drink was fantastic. Service was pretty fast

Great place to shop for local handcrafts and have a superb piece of cake with a milkshake. I wanted to return before leaving Namibia, but it was closed for the holidays at the end of December. Glad I made it at least once!

A great cafe in an excellent craft space. The stalls are terrific and not one person gave me any hassle. I bought some lovely well made goods at fair prices. The cafe was excellent and served a good range of quality meals and snacks

The cafe offers a welcome break from walking through all the craft market stalls. There was nothing special about the service but I loved the ambiance. The cakes on display looked yummy! I ordered the apple crumble - big helping. I've tasted better. I enjoyed the rock shandy and it quenched my thirst. I noticed a variety of teas on... More

This cafe is handily situated in the Craft Market in central Windhoek. There is a choice of indoor (limited) or outdoor seating. I've enjoyed various menu items here, including good coffee. I found the staff friendly. Before, after, or while strolling the market, this spot is ideal for a break.

Thank Richard L
