This place was recommended as a great coffee stop with wonderful cheesecake and did not disappoint. It was worth the drive up into the hills to see some different landscapes ...very like parts of the UK with plush pastures and cows grazing.

We always visit Hoekwil country cafe at least once during our holiday and we always take new visitors there. Cheese cake is amazing, we even order an entire cheese cake for our Christmas buffet!

We saw all the reviews about the cheesecake so had to try it. Not Disappointed! It IS the best cheescake. And they let our lovely Border Collies come sit with us in the garden and get attention.

t last I scheduled a visit to Hoekwil Country Cafe, but only to be disappointed as there were just a few tables inside the shop. It was too cold to sit outside, so we were forced to sit inside. The menu boasts the best cheesecake in South Africa, but I'm told that the cheesecake (and brownies) are made by Aiden,... More

Good day Thank you for all your feedback. Yes we have limited seating inside as we are not a restaurant but a local store come coffee shop. On our Facebook page we have a pic of our secret baker. We don't bake, but can take credit for selling a heck of a lot of "The best voted cheesecake". https://www.facebook.com/hoekwilcountrycafe/photos/a.343049652570212.1073741829.308919059316605/351654978376346/?type=3&theater I...

We've visited the Hoekwil Country Cafe many times, and as residents of Wilderness, we find it conveniently close. The cheesecake really is as good as everyone says, and my personal pick is the blueberry version. With that said, we've never had anything but excellent food and service here - from tramazinis to lemon meringue. And the coffee is great too.... More

We heard about the amazing cheesecake so thought we'd give it a try. It's everything they say! So, why only 2 stars? Well, we were on our way to a picnic at Jubilee Creek and so bought some muffins from the cafe. They were so stale they were inedible. If they'd been baked a few days earlier, then in my... More

Good day Thank you for your review. I would like to comment on the muffins you bought. If it were the muffins with the raisins, I can understand your disappointment. They should be labeled 'Rock Cakes', as they are harder and denser than your normal soft spongy muffin. I have tried to load pics to show you my purchase invoices... More

I cannot be in the Garden Route and not make a visit to this Café. They really have the best Belgium Chocolate Cheesecake ever. Think I would be able to eat the entire cake if I had the opportunity.

We had breakfast at Hoekwil Country Cafe. It has a relaxed atmosphere and is situated next to a school. Good value for money meals and coffee. A good place to experience the atmosphere of the community.

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
