We really don t get the excitement for this place… The cheesecake is average poor in our opinion (biscuits are soggy there s no fruit whatsoever). The omelette and the french toast were average too. The cappuccinos are average. The food arrives randomly and you...ll be eating on a bench . Everything feels powder made and artificial. For 2 cheesecake 1 omelette 1 french toast 2 chocolate 2 cappuccino we paid 490 rand. Why even think about going here????More

Probably the best cheesecake anywhere in the World. Well the best cheesecake I've ever eaten in any of the 70 countries I've visited. I had a generous portion of Turkish delight CK and the boss had a delicious blueberry. Scummy yummy good! The chai latte...as good as anything this side of Mumbai. The service was perfect. Lovely smiley kind people. RIKA a fantastic ambassador. The last review... see below, I don't recognise at all and the GMs response is all you need to know. This is a little slice of heaven. Go now before the last bit of Blueberry Cheesecake is scoffed. Brilliant and worth the 20 mile detour.More

A bit of a disappointment really. It seemed as if the breakfasts were carelessly banged on a plate. We waited so long for our post-breakfast cheesecakes, that we just left. How long does it take to slice a piece of cake and serve it? The...tables were not even fully occupied. The till and kitchen staff seemed very unhappy, and the man writing on the blackboard when we entered was quite unfriendly and seemed not to want us there. Won't go again. TMore

We had a light lunch here on a motorcycle trip on the back roads around Wilderness. My wife and I had the classic cheese and ham omelette and the Hoekwil Country Café tramezini. We had been treated a few days before to the legendary cheesecake...from here, but could not manage dessert after the wholesome and tasty meal. Service was friendly and efficient despite the fact that it was a public holiday and therefore extremely busy. Angie and Ellie were real stars. We bought a whole blueberry cheesecake to take home for dessert after the family dinner at the holiday home with our extended family. When in the area, this is a must on your itinerary.More
