This shop could just as well have been in Germany. It has lots of tasty baked goods on offer and makes it difficult to choose. Although it is looking out on the ocean they do have a wheelchair friendly path as access to the shop. Service was quick but lacked finesse.

Cafe Anton is know for their applestrudel. It is a nice old charm setting on the side of Swakopmund. The cakes are delicious and the coffee is good. To visit gives a traveller a feel of the old time Swakopmund. Locals older people like to visit this wellknow coffee shop. We did not have any other food so cant comment... More

Probably the best Schwarzwälder Kirsch Torte in the Southern Hemisphere. The cake can withstand the competition with the real stuff from the Black Forest in Germany.

Sort of feels like one is in the heartland of Germany...clean, great food, superb cakes and good service. A must to visit even if just for coffee-watch out for the lemon meringue cake, it is evil...biscuit base , perfect inner and a great meringue top

Lots to chose form and delicious! My favourite is the small Äpfeltäschlis ... the Swiss word for the apple fold overs. That together with a coffee or a rooibos tea ... mmm ... my day is made!

Yes, this is a "must see" for all the tourists. Famous for its apple cake (usually recommended with cream, but I prefer with ice cream). Coffee is decent, but I prefer a stronger brew which you will not get here. Many other pastries as well as good food for lunch (I've always enjoyed their chicken schnitzel). Check out the exotic...

Small and simple, for breakfast, coffee or lunch this is an easy option. Lots of seating inside and out. Friendly staff, some in training, but always with a smile. Amazing range of fresh cakes and pastries. Just a lovely place for a quick bite! Enjoy

A visit to Swakopmund is not complete without a coffee and pastry at Cafe Anton. We first visited 18 years ago and we so happy to find the standard, atmoshphere and whole vibe still the same. Its lovely to sit under the big palm trees, listen to the birds , write postcards and relax. A must do!!
