JaQ-MeRi Coffee and Bistro offers a delightful experience with its friendly service and pocket-friendly prices. The inviting atmosphere is complemented by an impressive menu, featuring great food and, undoubtedly, the best coffee in town. A go-to spot for those seeking a perfect blend of hospitality...and flavor.More

Went for lunch and a good escape out of town and something else. Having a seat on the verandah looking at the long table which is good for a group of more than 4 and can keep an eye on the children running around. Nice...spread of meals, from the quiche through to the pancakes. Good cup of coffee and excellent personal service. They also do group events with pre-booking and have heard that these are excellently organised. Little shop with house / kitchen stuff that is an attraction. Will do breakfast or lunch again and it is close to Marakele for an escape or on the way as a final stop.More

This is the place to be if you are around Thabazimi. Lovely quiet place to have lunch or a coffee with lovely pies. Pondok is also a little shop with lots of home made stuff.

They advertise they have the best breakfast in town (few km out of town) - and this is TRUE. We ate the Pondok breakfast with very nice coffee. It was so delicious and filling. They also sell handmade items, jams, olives, etc. Very nice with...friendly personnel. Will visit them definitely again when I am in the area.More
