I came here several times to drink a Flat White (stronger cappuccino). It was very good. I like this coffee café for several reasons: - Nice place to sit inside and outside - And when you are in a hurry, or the seats are all...taken, you can have a take away coffee. When you are in Franschhoek, and you love coffee, you should try this place.More

These guys are amazing. The best coffee in Franschhoek served by the happiest staff. Good range of healthy breakfast options. I love this place....

waiters took a while to get to us. we had to go to the counter to call one over. my ice coffee tasted burnt, supposedly had honey but had to add more because it had none. had the croissant with add ons- the croissant was...good, crispy. had avo, trout, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce. asked for soft eggs and got medium. the waiter was terrible. my dad asked for bacon and it took them so long my dad had already finished most of his breakfast and had to go to the waiter to ask for bill. warm, not hot coffee too. it’s not a cafe we would drive to come back to. but if we had to go we would.More

I've heard such Wonderfull things about this place but to my surprise today I have experienced the worst ever experience and I would not advice anyone off color to visit that place.... I went to have a coffee and meal and was confronted by the...most unfriendly waiter ever... She spoke to me like I am a dog, told me there was no tables for me but right infront off me was a open seating space she instructed me to move out off the way and wait but then offered the same open table to a man that came walking in way after me and when I asked she asked me why am I still there.... Another waiter then came and asked me if I was helped but at that time my hunger was pushed away by the abuse and humiliation I had to endure.... I will not advice anyone to go there because I had burn marks in my face from a holiday and am a person off color it seems I was labeled and bullied.More

Attractive cafe on the main road through Franschhoek, and with a nice outside space under spreading trees. Really great coffee roasted at their facility in KZN - beautifully brewed and strongly recommended. Friendly and attentive service, a great range of light meals.

This lovely outdoor setting under large trees is why we chose this place for lunch. The food and coffee were delicious. The menu was interesting. The service wasn't speedy but it was done in African time and was very friendly. On reading reviews I wonder...why people are always in a rush. If your time is limited then possibly explain that or go to a fast takeaway service. Chill out people and take time to smell the roses.More

Stunning Coffee, shockingly miserable and rude staff. A palpable sense of unhappiness, making any request a monumental chore.

We had a lovely lunch stop here on the way home from Franschoek. This review is all about the wonderful member of staff who served us (sorry i didn’t ask your name). She was really friendly and efficient. We asked to share a Turkish burger...and it automatically came on separate plate with separate cutlery. Very thoughtful. Of course, I’d made a mistake - I should have had a whole one to myself!! Next time…More

Although there few people in the restaurant, the service was slow and the food when it finally arrived, was mediocre to say the least. I have no idea why this is number 1 on TripAdvisor. Unjustified in my opinion .

We ordered a croissant and a Croque monsieur at 8:30. They did not have croissants. At 8:30 in the morning. The waiter was rude. Croque monsieur is a dish I love. This was the worst version I have ever been served of it. By a...mile. Absolutely vile. Dripping in oil and bad bad cheese. Oh and no skim milk. Avoid this hell hole.More

Excellent coffee and nice vibe! The tin cup on the menu is my favourite. Nice goodies in the shop and the savoury croissant was a winner for me.
