As regular visitors to the Hout Bay Area this is a cracking cafe that serves a decent breakfast and good coffee. Recently extended, it's looking good. We visited after the breakfast rush our service was excellent and so was the coffee and scone. My son had the cooked breakfast which was hot, tasty and good value for money.

Darios is highly favoured by the locals, for great a family run customer service, and fantastic food. A great burger, delicious coffee, and the best Italian ice cream. Its the perfect spot if you want to feel like one of the locals, rather than a tourist on show. Good old fashioned good homemade style food.

Dario's is a lovely place for a quick cuppa in the morning. The energy that runs through the small restaurant is really uplifting. Cyclists are always popping by before they begin their climb up Chapman's Peak and there is always a pot coffee brewing. The waitrons and the owner are always helpful and friendly(I always feel at home). The service... More
