Go there to try cheesecake with a cup of coffee. It is well worth it. It is also ideal for a light lunch.

Hidden away in this Southern Cape hamlet, you'll find the best cheese cake in the land. Astop here for cake and coffee is a must when visiting Wilderness. Hoekvil is a hidden gem and the Country cafe is the diamond,

Not overrated. So rich and smooth! Grap the morning paper and a coffee - you can't rush it. Area for the kids to play too.

If you are not impressed with children going wild, get an inside seat, even if it is cramped. The wors in the wors roll was way overcooked, and we missed out on the Aiden's chocolate brownie as we decided to seek a quieter venue.

While traversing the 7 Passes Road we decided to turnoff en route to try the much vaunted cheesecake. The blueberry was not available so I opted for the regular. It was a rather economic slice for the price and although tasty was not the best...More

Although their kitchen was already closed, they allowed us to sit down to enjoy drinks and their delicious cheesecake. A beautiful area in the mountains above Wilderness.

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
