We visited this cafe several times during our stay in Swakopmund and found the staff to be super friendly, the quality of the food was good and the location (in a quiet courtyard) excellent.

A little hidden down an alley this cafe had a lovely relaxed feel. Tables occupy a small courtyard just a few steps away from the hussle and bustle. Very friendly staff, great food and drinks, good WiFi connectivity. Excellent!

The garden cafe is a little hidden but a lovely place for lunch they offer the best salads in town. Nice friendly place with tasty salads and more. I love their fresh juices! Highly recommended for vegetarians and salad lovers.

Nice atmosphere and good coffee or food. When the sun is out, make sure to sit in the shade under the umbrellas to avoid sunburn.

I absolutely love this cafe. Peaceful little cafe, hidden from all the noise and super friendly employees. New owner(?) So they did change a bit(if you're local) and a wool shop is there as well.

Really cute coffee shop in a small garden, we were able to enjoy the last rays of sunshine in peace - you don't hear the traffic. Good cappuccinos, lattes etc. and cute decoration.
