I went on trip advisor to fined a place to drink good coffee and we choose Gabbiano, we were not disappointed and we love the lemon meringue. Only negative is that there was very little cake to choose. We will visit and drink coffee again

We stopped in passing here to the Cape Agulhas. We had a delicious breakfast of croissants stuffed with bacon, eggs, cheese and ham, and tasted a great american coffee. Pleasant and relaxing, friendly staff and service. Thanks Caledon!!!

Was a croissant and cappuccino combo special advertised on a chalkboard outside, but croissants were out of stock (the sign remained up). Had an okay breakfast wrap (with a large side of chips/fries!) my wife's... More

Always greeted with a smile, the service is great and the menu has a variety to choose from. We have had breakfast here, tried their cakes and recently had calamari which is very well priced, full of flavor and their smoothies and coffees are delicious.
