Cafe is easy to find off the highway, through Howick and on the Karkloof road. The entrance is on dirt but parking is plentiful and it is fairly easy to find shade. The venue is ideal for families as there are some animals to see...More

Lovely spot in a beautiful old home with magnificent view of the falls. Had a delicious, thick and creamy milkshake - the setting made it extra special.

We stopped at Yellowwood Cafe after swimming the Midmar Mile and enjoyed a delicious lunch. Awesome selection (even vegan options), beautiful setting under the trees, petting zoo and chilled vibe

A Very disappointing chicken salad for lunch today. Was tasteless. Only one kind of lettuce used - and most of it was 'white.' Not one herb in the salad and no special salad dressing. Just olive oil and balsamic.

Bad customer service, mediocre food, dirty unkept toilets. Overall bad management. This place is destined to fail if not turned around urgently. The animals were ok to look at, but they didn't provide animal feed for children to feed them.
