Where should you go for break­fast, lunch or a snack? Where the lo­cals go, of course.

Vil­lage Café, Swakop­mund

At this spot, you get a tin mug, a tin plate and lots of at­mos­phere. Or­der a boerekoffie (R36), sweet­ened with con­densed milk, while you con­sider your op­tions: toasted sand­wiches, omelettes, pancakes… If you’re re­ally hun­gry, try a burger (R32) or a stir-fry wrap (R60).
