We stopped here to see the cars and try the apple crumble/pie. The cars are very interesting, the apple pie was ok and the bathrooms are extraordinarily clean. Nice staff and good selection of drinks for sale in the adjoining store.

So this is an oasis after a rather long drive in the desert. It is a sight that tells you finally! It is sweeter than sweet after an exhausting overlanding. When you enter the bakery it is as if you are in one of local...More

The restaurant has limmeted items on the menue and is very expensive. There is no alternative place to eat, so it must do!

Lovely coffee and all sorts of treats available. Ask for the apple strudel, it is not in the display cabinet. To me it was a bit strange to pay for milk separate from you coffee. Nice cool place to take a rest.

We stopped in our way to Sasriem. It worth to stop because the way is very long but nothing special with the pie. We took also something with cocus that was not tasty at all.

Good place to stop to break up long drive. Apple pie is decent (although nothing to rave about to be honest), and they serve good coffee.

We stopped here for lunch break. And of course the must try Apple pie. Not too sweet, love it. Take a short walk around the area, you'll see an old cars graveyard. And a few antiques in the general store there.
