We had a great breakfast at the cafe just opposite the craft market. Quiet setting- good service- menu not extensive- simple, but good. Indoor and outdoor seating.

Me and my friend went here for lunch and they had a lot of different things to offer. It was a nice break when seeing Swakopmund for the day. We also tried their famous Forest Cake which was delicious, and their coffee was also really good.

A great family concern with a stunning bakery product, fresh additives and the best coffee available anyday! Whether bakery eats, brödchen, continental or the full monti; this is freshly prepared value for money!

Came here for breakfast. Definately not worth it. Even though they called themselves buffet but you can only choose difference cereal options. They made you pay extra if you want extra toppings on your eggs However cakes are quite nice . So recommend to come for tea only NOT breakfast

This was a coffee and cake stop for us. The coffee OK and the cake, Black Forest Gateau was very good. However the staff seemed disinterested and as another reviewer said 'sour faced'.

Huge cakes, good selection. Staff is friendly. Coffee and tea is fine. Nice location. I understand that Cafe Anton is an institution - a place with lots of history.

This restaurant specialises in cakes. Possible the best restaurant in town when it comes to cakes. All cakes are freshly baked. Service is great. Come and enjoy old 1950's charm with a cup of tea and a slice of cake

Went for breakfast here with friends who came from America, who are originally from Namibia and South Africa. Some had the full breakfast, some only had from the breakfast menu. The food was delicious. As it is in season, it was quite busy, so we waited a bit for our food. Overall, nice place to eat. Definitely recommended.

Thank Brigitte B
