Amazing cheesecake, carrot cake & lively service. Lovely subtle view of mountains in the distance with quaint surroundings. Not too ostentatious.

We went to the Hoekwil Country Cafe especially for the cheesecake. The cheesecake was delicious, but unfortunately the poor service we received, left us disappointed. The first waiter was unfriendly and looked bored and tired. I requested to bring my tea after I finished my...cheesecake. We had to ask her to clean our table, as it was dirty and sticky. After a long wait, another waitress attended our table and we told her we were waiting for our order. When our order arrived, it was my tea (with cold milk after I asked for hot milk) and not the cheesecake. They were not busy at all and the whole atmosphere was dull and disappointed.More

We visited with a friend! They had friendly service. I ordered a chocolate brownie with whipped cream - one of the best brownies I've had! And the others ordered from their famous cheesecake varieties. My ice coffee with ice was also one of the best...ice coffees I've ordered at a restaurant ever!More

The day boxing day on the Garden Route, everywhere is packed, and when you feel like a late breakfast, post midday, it's a losing battle. I went to Hoekwil Cafe, which was super busy as well. Not only was a plan made to find me...a quiet area to sit 1, but I was served with a smile, and got a hot breakfast in well under 10 minutes. Fantastic attitudes from the staff, and well worth a compliment.More
