A lovely little cafe in the heart of Swokop selling German cakes and coffee with attentive staff and great views of palm trees and the Atlantic Ocean. I highly recommend the baked cheesecake.

We had the cheese cake with tea. Average service and refreshments. Established name but better placed that will offer better all round experience.

A usual spot to visit when in Swakopmund. Time stands still when visiting Café Anton. Although a year has passed again, it feels like we were there yesterday. Nice setting with good coffee and cake. A long lived tradition that carries on.
