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

We always stop here on our way down to Natal. Peace, quiet, beauty. Excellent home made food (not the massed produced stuff you get elsewhere) Beautiful view.. This is where your holiday starts. Take a deep breath of the fresh air and feel the relaxation...kick in. Geraldine and Malcolm are always friendly and welcoming. Don't miss this spot on your travels and of course The Little Church is a must see.More
