About the host

The cafe is a rustic, comfortable, homely spot to hang out after an early morning surf, time on the beach, or to just come enjoy some simple, good food. We specialise in breakfasts, coffee and home baked goods. Although our place is small, it is gets busy at times and theres always an interesting mix of people around. ☺️ Durban is a multicultural city, and from our amazing local staff and our place being situated inside a beachy backpackers...
