We are a private and family run coffee shop based in Swakopmund at the new Platz am Meer Waterfront Mall. We are located next to Edgars on the sea side.
When we heard our original tables were not going to arrive on time we got electric cable rolls made into tables. Yes they are quite rough looking but they are fitting the part. When our new tables arrived they were the wrong colour, so we decided to return the tables and make more of the cable roll tables as people seem to enjoy them more and more. They fit in perfectly with our look and therefore they are here to stay 🙂
We have a good variety of food to select from on our menu. We encourage our staff and the public to think outside the box. Open your heart, mind and soul to try something new or different. Our coffee is the main part of what we are all about. We use Truth Coffee from Cape Town. The reason for this is that we absolute fell head over heals in love with the taste of their coffee. It really is good coffee roasted to perfection. It is not that we do not want to support the local roasters of Swakopmund, however we tasted and traveled afar to find the perfect match for us. We developed a lovely relationship with Truth Coffee in Cape Town – they even send us videos on how to fix something on the coffee machine ourselves 🙂
Further more regarding the menu, we have a Bobotie Burger (verrry delicious) on the menu with beautiful Cape Malay spices, beer battered fish and chips, most delicious chicken salad with salted cashew nuts and honey glazed bacon and a game pie on display which is mouthwatering delicious as well as a chicken pie and more. We make the pastry of the pie ourselves and we bake our own cakes and tarts on display. People are more than welcome to pre-order homemade cakes and pies from us.
Our staff – all staff of the Aviary Coffee Shop are seen as family of the Aviary. We do not tolerate anyone being rude or unkind to them no matter what their age, gender or colour. They are an important part of us and we work together as a family.
If there is any complaint or suggestions, you are more than welcome to come and speak to us in person. Just ask for Anso, Huibre or Luzelle…
We are looking forward to seeing you soon 🙂
