What an awesome little shop. The service from Ellestine was fantastic and we had fun chatting to the owner, Richard. The cheesecake, carrotcake, milktart and lemon meringue all were delicious, with beautiful views. A definite stop to do while in the Garden Route!

We came for the cheesecake and didn't regret the little detour. Blueberry and Belgian chocolate both delicious (officially approved by us, real Belgian chocoholics)! Welcoming and very friendly service by the entire staff.

What can I say, you cannot pass through Hoekwil without stopping for a delicious slice of cheese cake and coffee. Oh and grab s loaf of Marinco’s sourdough bread on your way out. Absolutely delicious!

Description
A delightful little coffee shop tucked away on the top of the hill called Hoekwil, near Wilderness. It is a locally hidden gem which most people never find or find by chance. It's only a 5 Minute drive from N2, near Wilderness. It is a mix between a little local convenience store and a Coffee shop cafe. They serve the best voted cheesecake in SA (voted by Eat In). Three delicious flavours to choose from, being Lemon, Belgian chocolate and the best selling Blueberry flavour. The carrot cake is also a local favourite. You should not be disappointed. What is a good cake without a good coffee? They also make great Coffees, cappuccino s, Lattes and Mocha's. Coffee beans are freshly ground. Also a wide selection of teas available including Rooibos cappuccino. On the menu is a selection of breakfasts, Omelettes and toasted sandwiches. Takeaway drinks and food available. Locally produced vegetables, honeys and farm stall type eats also for sale. On cold days there is a cosy fireplace inside. On hot days it's a must to relax on the deck and watch country life go by with great mountain views. Kids are entertained on the swings and see-saw. From here you can visit our local Big Tree (over 800 years old) or take a hike on the many walks available. The old 7 Passes road also runs past, which used to be the main route linking George and Knysna
