What a gem of a place. Hands down the best eatery in Winterton. Great service, friendly owner, management and staff. Delicious meals! What more could one ask for. Perhaps more time... our second visit would have been for a quick lunch... we left several hours...later :) Well worth a drive down from Pmb on those days you feel like a meander with a stop off for a great meal! The coffees are equally delicious.More

Our favorite spot to stop off for coffee and a bite to eat after a lovely hike! The food is absolute exceptional, and the staff are very pleasant. You can see a lot of detail and effort is put into each and every dish. Huck...and Elsabe are the sweetest people and run this restaurant magnificently. I would highly recommend the brekkie scones for breakfast or a Juicy beef burger for lunch, and you have to finish your meal off with the best Crepes and Ice cream in the berg!More

Huck and Elsabé have created a delightful, welcoming and wonderful restaurant in the heart of Underberg. We stopped for lunch the other day and were made to feel incredibly welcome. The food was delicious, beautifully prepared and presented. The staff were lovely and Huck was...especially friendly, and not just because my son's also called Huck! He even gave us all a slice of exquisite chocolate cake each. I ate the lot, and I very very rarely eat Chocolate cake, especially after a filling lunch. The coffee was excellent and I'm extremely picky about my coffee. We send our very best wishes to Huck and Elsabé and next time we're over from the UK I look forward to coming back :).More

We received a warm welcome upon arrival. The freshly pressed juice was refreshing and you could taste each flavour. The Bean and potato bunny with salad was absolutely devine. It had a beautil thick gravy and so much flavour. My son did not even miss...the meat. The portion was huge. The men had the Nosebag burger and enjoyed every bite. Like a proper home made burger pattie. The cappuccinos were served in a nice big mug and very frothy on top. It was well worth the trip to Underberg.More

What an amazing coffee shop, with lovely gifts and things to brows. Most spectacular photos by owner. Lovely atmosphere, great service and delicious food. The coffee is really very good. Had a lovely "kuier" with the owner. We will definitely come back here.

We have visited this restaurant on all our trips to the Southern Drakensberg. The staff are friendly and the food well presented. We were disappointed in the fishcakes as they tasted as though they were of the bought frozen variety and we expected them to...be homemade. There is a photo gallery at the back with stunning prints of the mountains etc on sale.More

Some good menu items that are not the usual customary fare offered. A bit of a twu=ist to some dishes, even though all the straight forward type items are available. Only gripe is service was very slow and meals were rather pricey

A very pleasant entrance to a fabulously warm environment with welcoming staff that cater to your every need. A small but comprehensive menu prepared with care and fresh ingredients. Fantastic coffee and smoothies to tantalise your taste buds. And as a reminder of your visit,...purchase yourself a reminder of your stay in the Southern Berg with a wonderful print of Hick Orban’s photography.More
