We we're utterly surprised with this awesome visit! Where will you get 4 cups of filter coffee for only R10.00! Food portions are big enough to share, VERY tasty, well presented and exceptional service. A MUST see!

Mike and Peter created an amazing little hideaway to have brunch at in the middle of nowhere. Such a charming setting with warm and friendly hosts. Not to be missed if you pass through Calitzdorp over a weekend.

We stopped for a tea break at the Oude Poskantoor after a day of sight seeing, on our way back to The Retreat At Groenfontein. Charming setting, good cake, friendly local owner and the coolest home-sewn draw string pants made it a good visit!
