The Tribakery is just that, a bakery that serves simple food and drink and does so with enthusiasm and friendliness. We were here for the Robben Island ferry which was cancelled at the last minute, so we sat here and re-planned our day. Clean and tidy and inexpensive.

The burger was perfect and the waiting staff were friendly and eager to please. The outside sitting was airy and perfect for the scorching summer heat. I'll be taking friends there next time!

Stopped here for a quick snack. Meal was really good and prices fair. Slightly away from the main crowded harbour area so no long queues and quick service.

We ate breakfast here before going on the Robben Island cruise as it is right next to each other. Although there aren't bathrooms, it is a short walk away. The selection and quality was good enough to convince us to have lunch there after the tour. Try the prawn and avocado burger, as well as the while and dark hot... More

We arrived here later in the day. The place was very empty but we were welcomed in and found a table. It soon became apparent that the resturant was in the process of closing up for the day however we were not rushed at all and we were able to enjoy a good meal and good service. It would have...

Conveniently located to grab a quick breakfast in house or to take away, prior to early robben island trip! Service was very quick which made it possible to eat breakfast in before catching the boat. There are pastries and cooked breakfast, teas and coffees and fruit juices. Plenty of choice for everyone and very reasonable.

We celebrated our son's 21st birthday here with friends, but we regularly visit for coffee when we pass by in our daily routine. This restaurant is conveniently situated right next to the Nelson Mandela gateway to Robben Island. If you love fine food and aromatic coffee, this is it. I salute their barista every time. A kid's playground adjacent to... More

This place has a pleasant location, but do not be fooled by the name. They had limited muffins, no scones and only one croissant and this was at 12.30 in the afternoon. I think they rely on location rather than service and good food to attract customers.

We are a restaurant and not a bakery , we are rebranding as the name is deceiving .Unfortunately some mornings our croissant etc sells out quickly to do regulars and people catching the Robben Island boat .It is unpredictable how many people will come in...

We were drawn to this place because of their name hoping for some "bakery". Unfortunately, we ordered our cappuccinos first before we inquired about dessert. They walked us over to a glass display case which contained a handful of muffins in sealed plastic - the kind you might find in a vending machine. That's not exactly what we were expecting.... More
