We visited Cuppa Musselcracker on Sunday 12 March to have a light lunch with family of us. When we sat down,the waiter brought us a menu and took our order for drinks. No dry white wine available for the ladies to start with. We start to order our food and the waiter said there are no chicken wings available. We... More

I visit this coffee shop frequently early mornings with business friends, because of the lovely setting. The coffee taste bad, so I had to settle for tea. Every once in a while they have no tea, then I settle for water. I have tried to order breakfast, but to no avail, they could not serve breakfast. One cannot complain to... More

Went there on a work excursion. It was unexpected and a lot of people unexpectedly arrived at the place unannounced. As a result service was very poor which is understandable. Decor is very average and nothing to write home about Food when it eventually came was reasonable, albeit deep fried and fairly oily. Wine list very limited

Nice location and that is it. We ordered spaghetti napolitana, pork ribs and a salad... the pork ribs contained 90 % of fat, spaghetti was overcooked and the italian cooks would kill that cook to call that sauce a napolitana... it tasted more like sweet and sour or chutney based sauce. Very disappointing.

While my wife and I had visited the restaurant before and were pleasantly surprised by the view of the coffee shop over the Walvis Bay harbour, our experience was not the same today. Today we were warned by the waitress about the slow service from the kitchen, which some may construe as good advice, but no alternative was offered -... More

What a disappointing place to have a meal at. Our Pizza was terrible and we could not eat it. The base was like eating a piece of wood. The coffee was okay, but not hot. Great location spoilt by bad food and very average service.

This place as the best coffee and great food to. They also have a book exchange and one can sit peacefully and enjoy a coffee with friends or family while looking onto the lagoon area.

Visited twice. The food is nice. We had beef & chicken espatada and really love it. They have the best cakes in town in my opinion. The waitress was nice and helpful. Great place for a late afternoon coffee & for breakfast. Good surrounding and waterfront view. Very tasty hot drinks options. Negative points: They take long to serve. Would... More

After waiting for our food (after a long wait just to place the order in the first place) for a very long time, we asked and the waitress thought it was all a big joke and just giggled and said "it's coming". Fifteen minutes later we asked again, and again were told "it's coming". We then insisted on knowing what... More
