Or to sit and watch the world go by in one of the original sleepy little towns. Food was good, service was good and they were very accommodating to our needs with a small baby.

...But service was slow! Delicious food and cooling misters were a welcome relief from the heat! Seems a popular place, which explains the slow service

Arrived and was seated. Waiter was very friendly. Nice setting on the stoep. Ordered the omelette and a coffee. Food was generous and the coffee nice and strong. Service was good and very nice experience. Recommend this one.

The best scones and croissants , was so delicious we ordered sconds. This quaint Victorian style hotel has a cute restaurant serving great breakfast. The place was very busy with lots of holiday makers.

Very pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff, but in search of a proper Cappuccino it was rather disappointing, cup size is to big for standard Cappuccino, the milk did not have enough body and so seemed more like a filter coffee with hot milk or latte. Milk temperature was almost right, but leaned over to the 'too hot' side of the... More

Just lovely! Like sitting on the stoep, visiting and not just eating out.. Coffees of good quality and food is njam! Karoo boerewors and home made relish is really good. Fruit platter also nice. Not just chopped apples and yogurt.. Menu not limited to only a few dishes, caters for a wide variety.

Lovely to sit here on the deck on a good day & watch the passing parade while sipping a glass of wine or coffee. The menu is exciting & quite broad .

Hubby and I stopped here for a few drinks and spent a lovely 2 hours just watching the world go by. It faces the main road of Prince Albert but it isn't a busy village so the little traffic there was didn't bother us. We sat facing the majestic Swartberg Mountains. Although we didn't eat, the menu was well priced... More
