Enjoy fresh delicious food set in a small immaculate nursery. Friendly staff and lots of attention to detail make this a special bit of green heaven in the middle of the Karoo. Cake and coffee both worth the visit.

Friendly personel and quick service. The drinks was excellent and the cake to die for. The atmosphere is one of a tea garden in a French rural town.

Excellent place for tourists and locals to visit. Coffee and eats were delicious and to be set in a plant nursery makes this place extra special.

Worth a visit, but not so easy to find!. We enjoyed our lunch indoors as it was so hot outside and then strolled around the nursery. The staff were friendly and efficient.
