Windhoek portrays the color, sounds of a modern African city with its displays of African drums and woodcarvings on the pavements, which contrast with the elegant shops offering sophisticated Swakara garments and Namibian gemstone and sidewalk cafes offering Namibian style breakfasts which can be enjoyed with a glass of sparkling wine or locally brewed draught beer. In addition to steak houses and coffee bars serving snacks, the city has a wide range of à la carte restaurants offering German, French, Taiwanese, Portuguese, Italian, African and Chinese cuisine.
