I love Treat Cafe. We took my Dad for his birthday for breakfast. This must be the biggest most varied breakfast offering. We all had the long drive with pork sausage, baked beans, mushrooms, chips, bacon and egg all for an affordable price. We had...More

A beautiful light and airy restaurant with views over the Alverstone valley. High ceilings with white exposed beams, white furniture and lovely (albeit rather expensive) gifts on display add to the ambience. Excellent service - my husband dropped his fork and before he could bend...More

A friendly welcome, generous spirit and considerable attention to detail, come together at Treat Cafe. Rich tradition, contemporary style and nature's bounty are the sources, your dining pleasure, the result! We like the smallness of our name and we like the simple and complex association of the word. Treat Cafe is a place to indulge yourself, whether it be a quick coffee stop or a long slow afternoon over a delicious lunch with friends, we have built our Cafe on the notion that you want a friendly welcome in a place that is warm, genuine and reliable. Treat Cafe is fast becoming a firm favourite with both locals and our long time Talloula clients and friends, not only for a delicious meal, but as a venue for special birthdays, anniversaries, engagement parties, book club functions, baby showers and even kitchen teas! We seem to have done it all, and loved every minute of the variety this function room offers. Visit our facebook page for news of our Theme Evenings and Starlight Movies For those in need of some retail therapy we have carefully hand picked gift items and artwork for sale, trying wherever possible to support local and hand produced goods. Our jungle gym keeps the little tots busy, and we have been told that we make the best Milkshakes in KZN -come on over and have your say!
