Normally pop in for coffee and cake which is usually pretty good. Today decided to have lunch and it was very poor. Schnitzel was dried out & tough, burger wasn’t great either. A pity as the venue is beautiful especially in autumn.

We popped in for lunch and had an amazing time. Delicious food and coffee, play area for kids, animals that you can feed, friendly service. We will be back!

Just a stop and relax stop for us. Nice garden to enjoy a good coffee and enjoy the view on the way to your Underberg destination.

We popped in this morning to have breakfast. The surrounding scenery is stunning and our food was very good. I would recommend this place to visitors.

If you dont like to see how untrained most pet owners are, dont come. Food is good. Scenery is beautiful. Service is good. The place is beautiful and well kept. But my best advice is dont make it pet friendly. Let the dogs stay home...and safe. The pets destroyed my peace. Having to witness kids pull dogs on leashes and pushing them up and down the slide.More

Recommended by a friend who lives in the area we went to the Olde Duck for brekkie our first morning, wow! Warm scones, fantastic coffee and all around scrumptious fare. This started a love affair with this local joint! We returned following a walk along...the river (thanks Sani spoors!) and then again a week later when our travels brought us back to Underberg. Service is friendly and efficient. An all around favourite from our trip - and dog-friendly as a bonus! We don't have kids but the variety of entertainment options for small humans was unsurpassed. Highly recommend.More

Annual stop at the duck on our way to berg timeshare - great lunch, friendly staff and cute animals. Returned later in the week for delicious coffee, highly recommended milkshakes and awesome carrot cake. Scones and waffles close 2nd!

I love Olde Duck, this was my second trip here. This time around we had the lightest pancakes with syrup and cream, they were too divine. Thank you for accommodating the kids by sharing their hot chocolate in separate cups. It's the little things you...do, that provide an extraordinary experience for us. Will definitely be back!More

Sit outside in the peaceful garden with beautiful mountain views. The cappuccinos are truly fabulous, and the carrot cake was moist and delicious. Friendly efficient staff. We will definitely be back for a light lunch next time we are in the berg.
