The owner baked both my son's wedding cakes and they were delicious. We have gone there several times and never has the food or the company failed us. Devine, devine devine is all I can say! While there, pop into the little church and light...a candle ... its worth the little walk overMore

What a lovely place for a stop on the drive from Johannesburg to Natal. In our case it was a breakfast stop and we didn’t have a lot of time. It is lovely sitting in that beautiful little garden (with our dog!). The breakfast menu...is perfect and to our surprise the food came quickly and was really tasty. We even did a little shopping in their store. A really good stop which we will repeat.More

The most delicious food, friendly service and breathtaking view! This stop is a must when driving down to Durban. The church is so beautiful, the gift shop is filled with the most amazing homemade treats and the scones are to die for! What a way...to start a holiday :)More

A must stopover on your way to Durban. Situated in the hills of Van Reenen’s Pass. Perfect setting, awesome food and just such friendly service and environment. Oh and the view is to die for

There is always such a rush to get to the sea.... we pass the gems on the way. This little spot is so quaint and unexpected.

What a pleasant surprise to find this lovely spot just off the main Rd. We stopped here for brunch and had to have the devine cake as well!! "The view is awesome.! Service friendly and efficient and for this it deserves the 5*rating.

A lovely pitstop & leg stretch. The best cakes & berry compote. Great coffee & hot tea beautifully served in vintage silver & floral crockery. Clean bathrooms & a lovely gift shop with ample jams, preserves & marmalades. Take a jersey if you opt to...sit out in the garden, as there's usually a fresh mountain breeze.More

We finally made our long overdue stop at this intriguingly sign posted invite atop Van Reenan's Pass. Drive past the derelict and abandoned petrol station to a pastoral hinterland of mountain views, farmland and a tiny little church built in honour of a much loved...son. In the same grounds is the tea garden, antique shop and tearoom in a converted house that resonates with the courtesy and welcome of days gone by. We enjoyed scones with Earl Grey tea served on fragile porcelain and our tea arrived in aged solid silver ware. This place is delightful. You may have to wait for a table but it is worth it. If you prefer the intimate and home cooked to the noise and fast food of elsewhere then do not hesitate to add this venue to your preferred stop over list.More

A lovely tranquil, unfussy, tea garden that serves up fabulous dishes and great coffee. Great spot to stop on the N3 Durban/Joburg route, especially if you have small children or pets, Lots of space to RUN.

We stopped in after visiting the little church. We had cream scones with blueberry jam which we enjoyed under the trees in the neat little garden overlooking the valley. This is a good stop for a leg stretch, four-legged patrons are welcome as we did...see a few on leashes.More
