Solitaire Bakery itself is enticing - we grabbed homemade rolls to feast on as we explored Sossusvlei, but also ate dinner one night and enjoyed delicious burgers with a "Rain in the Desert" storm as entertainment.

We stopped in solitaire at McGregor's Bakery on our way from Swakop to Sossusvlei. Everyone--and I mean everyone--had recommended the apple pie (pictured). My friend and I were both starving and each ordered lattes and a slice of apple pie. As a person who bakes and eats a lot of baked goods, I have to say it was only average.... More

We tasted five tarts in Namibia and Solitaire and Helmeringhausen tied for the best. Well worth the stop.

An institution, seemed very popular with visitors. We stopped for a light lunch & salad, which was good. Looking around the bakery offered an arrany of sweet & savoury bakes. Shop on premises too. Clean toilets at no charge most appreciated.

An institution so a must, but be ready to be disappointed . The famed apple pie is not like your mums. However , good coffee and other cakes. Petrol station so fill up
