Went back to Deer Park cafe for breakfast with a friend on a very hot morning. Found a seat outside in the shade near the trees and enjoyed a great brunch. Lovely helpful staff. Definitely recommend this place. Ideal for children to play in the grounds too.

We were staying in the apartment above the cafe and had quite a few meals at the cafe. They were all outstanding and being coeliac the team were so good at advising what I could eat and the meals were delicious. A great place to come with friends and family. Thank you for such good service

Food was ok, but the services is almost none existent. Either there is no management running the place and waiters just don’t care. 1 positive the host was lovely and gets you a table very quickly but then the poor waiter service destroys it

I was happy to see that the Café re-opened after the construction work. It's a great place to go with kids and dogs and the service is super-friendly. However, I was VERY disappointed by the very small and kind of boring breakfast menu. The egg portions were really small and pretty stingy on the toast- unfortunately the price didn't reflect that. We left feeling hungry. I hope they improve the menu soon. Don't rest on location alone, you need to be competitive food-wise as well!

We had coffee and the kids shared a pizza. The pizza was very good, the coffee was good. The kids play area offer something of the old world of parks in a suburb. I will visit again if in the area.

As one arrives one will realise that the restaurant is very packed. The tables outside are constantly blocked by the staff for ppl supposebly still being in the vacinity bur actually no where to be seen. So you sit inside instead of ourside bc someone might( or might not) be comming back. The staff seems very arrogant in letting you know that you are basically unworthy of an outside table. The fact that Deerpark Cafe is so packed can not be linked to the service of the staff but rather to the beautiful park and possibility for children to play.

We arrived and relelized we had mistaken Deer Park with De Waal park...our bad. Instead of a lovely walk before breakfast we saw a well equipt childrens playground, my kids would have loved it. Frankly we got off to a shaky start, a mix up with the waiting staff...they thought we had been attended to, we hadnt...easy mistake to make when busy and they were. We sat in what i presumed to be the smoking/ take away waiting area, our choice, we are a mature couple who have served their time dining amongst young families with children...i must emphasize that it was our choice. We ordered coffee, not knowing if we were going to stay. Decent coffees arrived timeously but i did have to ask for the sugar. We decided to stay for breakfast. My partner ordered the Mediterranean breakfast, in my mind a odd breakfast choice consisting of olives, feta, a eggplant dish and rocket, the boiled egg was gladly replaced for avo. I went for the " Full Stack" eggs scrambled as opposed to poached and two fresh oranges juices The Med breakfast was amazing! So fresh and flavoursome and my full stack was equally as good, the individual flavours and freshness of the tomatoes and mushrooms, its quite obvious only the best of quality produce is used at this establishment. Oh, the orange juice....freshly squeezed and excellent. Our waitress was friendly, helpful and attentive without being over bearing and patronizing and acording to my partner, she has a wicked sense of humor! We will return to this eatery, its busy for a reason...its bloody good. OH! We bought take out apple crumble..it too was excellent

We visited early on a Sunday morning. The breakfast was very nice and reasonably priced. Service was also very good. The park is beautiful and has great features for children. The only negative was the dog poo everywhere where the children are playing. This will make me think twice about going back, unfortunately.

This is a very nice place for little kids as well as dogs. The entire area is fenced off and is very safe. You can book a table at the resturant and enjoy a meal while the kids are playing outside. There is a range of playing park equipment to keep the kids busy.

Went here for a light meal and were pleasantly surprised by how fresh and nice the food was. It’s a cafe a little out of the route of all the other restaurants but it was really great! Service was all kinds of friendly and happy to serve you.

This place is very good for young children and the food is excellent. My only complaint is that it is popular with dog owners, some of whom think it is fine to let their dogs climb on to tables and eat the leftovers or else sit hopefully right next to you. So go if you want good food and entertainment for your child, but be wary of the negligent dog-owners.

If you're from out of town and in the area, come check out this easy going, chilled family spot with majestic views, great beer and simple food. Place was packed yet we hung out in the park area until a table became available. Ordered a drink and relaxed and enjoyed the fun filled environment soaking up the sun. Expect a vibey, family filled area with animals. Good vibes and decent chow and beer of course! I tried the Kings craft pilsner (tasted more like a weiss but was great).

I came here with my grandson. We are basically ignored and after ten minutes I left without even giving a drinks order. Not impressed.
