If you want to relax under the trees in the Paarl heat this is your place. It is family friendly with a slide, a rabbit, green grass and lovely trees. The bonus is it gives the grown-ups a real vintage feel.

I took my teenage children here and we really enjoyed it. The setting is so beautiful, sitting under the big old oak trees. We all had the brownies. My son had the "normal" brownies and my daughter and I had the gluten free brownies. WOW!!!...More

Very pretty and relaxed, good service, I didn't enjoy the milk tart, it didn't taste bad at all it is just very different to my preferred version of a milk tart. Would still return many times over
