Lovely central restaurant to meet friends or mums from school for a coffee and a chat to catch up news. Service is sometimes not great. Prices is excellent.

I tried the savoury pancakes the mince was tasteless, the pancake was way too thick and the chips must have been frozen as it was oily and undercooked. As for her hot drinks they were overpriced. The deli adds to the ambiance but I would not return unfortunately

Great atmosphere inside this restaurant with plenty of little things around you as you walk in. Unfortunately this atmosphere did not last that long , I ordered a quiche with chips for R55. Firstly I think the portion of quiche was to small for the amount charged. The chips was also just average. Coffee was decent though.

Their special of the day is always good value. The restaurant lives up to its name. Has indoor and outdoor seating and a pleasant atmosphere.

Business meeting or simply meeting friends ideal setting offering great meals. Not ideal for mom's with small children.

For whatever reason I never visit the Farmhouse, but today simply because of proximity to a car service appointment, my Mom and I went. Glad we did! With a very friendly greeting by Christo and staff we were immediately comfortable. It's a comfy, cozy spot with plenty of seating and a nice menu - caters to all diets and tastes.... More

We went for afternoon Lunch at the Farmhouse. The ambience of the restaurant is quaint. The restaurant gives a very nostalgic view of a time past. The food was dissapointing. My toasted sandwich was very soggy. The chips where not freshly cut.

Popular cafe and it's easy to see why. Lots of character as the walls are lined with curios and bric-a brac. Great staff, good coffee and free wifi.
