The friendly town of Swellendam and the Ikigai coffee bar was our first indication of this beautiful and very pleasant town. Friendly welcome, very efficient service and excellent coffee and cake. Great value for money.

We stopped here for internet coverage to try and find something to do locally due to heavy rain. We happily stayed here eating the lovely cakes and enjoyed the atmosphere and music. Amazing how we rely on the web when traveling.

Stopped here on a tour of South Africa. We walking up and down the street looking at various restaurants for lunch, and picket this one. I had the most amazing BLAT sandwich on their own whole grain bread. Wraps and coffee were also good. Lovely...More
