Found it by chance set back from the street in a lovely shady courtyard. Coffee however was watered down filter coffee with no real taste and service was very slow. Pity as setting was super. Snacks looked good so perhaps just avoid the coffee!

Recommend you start your day at this delightful establishment. Coffee delicious, and pastries out of this world. Set in a quaint courtyard this bakery is worth a visit.

We visited this cafe recently for breakfast and were pleasantly surprised with the good and friendly service we got. Very reasonable prices on the menu and we have been there a few times for breakfast.

I was referred to the restaurant by a few of my friends but I was not impressed with the quality of the food. The location and feel of the place is amazing but was really disappointed with the rest.More

Stopped by while walking through town to get a brekkie. Good flavours and they even accomodated our Avo on Toast request. Truth coffee is always delicious.

Lovely little coffe and bakery shop tucked away in a tree covered courtyard, very restful and pleasant. Food was very tasty and the presentation was pleasantly "different" served on wooden platters with very fresh breads, scones or croisants.

We felt like we were in Provence or Tuscany, even though we were just off Main rd in Plettenberg Bay ! Delicious juices, croissants, scrambled eggs etc. Don't miss out when you're in Plett !

buzzing place to sit most of the morning with fresh coffee and the smell of freshly baked breads! Service can be slow in high season, but it's the atmosphere that make you not to mind
