Sitting at this charming eatery allows for beautiful views of the bustling square and Just Nuisance’s statue, the harbour and the mountains. The breakfast menu is comprehensive and unpretentious. The breakfast (we all opted for the English Breakfast) was served very quickly and it was tasty and satisfying. Our waitron was friendly and efficient. All-in-all a lovely outing.

The restaurant is in jubilee square, with shops, tables with African souvenir, a stunning view of the yacht harbor as well as the South African Navy.
It has been under new management, so we decided to give it a try.
There is a feeling of openness and cleanness with lots of white.
Lots of big windows. Outside there is a number of tables facing the harbor. Arguably one of the nicest views.

We arrived at 14:00, looked a the smallish menu.
My wife felt like eating a breakfast (which is served until 12:00).
Asked the waiter if it would be possible to order a breakfast, without any hesitation he said it would be no problem.
I ordered a steak, which was served with onion rings and chips.
The meat was soft and tasty.

Excellent service.
Prices are reasonable.

The only strange thing was that they have a lovely selections of cakes and other sweets, yet we were not asked if we wanted some.

We will be back and recommended it without hesitation.
