The Printingdon is a nice looking cafe on Ladysmith's Main Street. It has great location and eye appeal with a warm brick interior that almost cries out for you to come in and shake off the rain with a warm cup of coffee. Unfortunately neither...More

A friend and myself stopped by the cafe on a Sunday afternoon for coffee around 3.40pm. The coffee, hot chocolate and butter tarts served to us were good. We were unaware that the cafe closed at 4pm and neither did they inform us instead they...More

My friend and I are both sensitive to wheat, so we were pleased to find a restaurant in Ladysmith with so many options. They try to make their soups gluten-free whenever possible, as well as having gluten-free bread and buns available for all their sandwiches...More

After just moving to Ladysmith a few short months ago, I thought I would give this place a try. Nothing too spectacular from the outside, plain really, but they seemed to be advertising some sort of new opening. After walking in, there was a certain...More

Take heart vegetarians. This place Ladysmith is right for you. Restaurant was once the site of the Miners Union and later a bar with an upstairs bordello. Ingrid owns it now. She personally cooks all the food served. Vegetarians can enjoy: Breakfast wraps, Vegetarian sandwiches,...More
