We stopped here for a late afternoon coffee on a quiet Saturday afternoon. The staff, although busy cleaning, were super welcoming and friendly. The toilets were clean and neat. The whole venue is full of character and funky artefacts. Picture perfect backdrop for photos! Loved...our coffee and baked cheese cake. Ideal for a vibrant stop en-route R62!More

Lovely vibe out in the sun! Had pancakes with sugar & cinnamon and a cup of coffee. Was good! The pancakes are very thin, a double portion would have been better.

Diesel and Creme is one of a kind, laid back atmosphere and really cool vintage deco. We like to stop there when on Route 62, but this might be the last time we do so. Even though the milkshakes are still amazing (not my thing...though), the food was horrid. how can you miss a chicken wrap? how can you miss a hot dog? yet they managed. my chicken wrap was the worst i had in my life: though the wrap itself was gluten free and satisfactory, its the inside that was terrible: a couple of cooked chicken strips unspiced (i cannot write grilled because they were not), big blobs of melted cheese and the random rosa tomato sliced in half. not a trace of greens or spice. my husband's hot dog's frankfurter was raw in the middle, he had to send it back to be cooked properly. This visit left a bitter taste, next time it will be only for a drink.More

Stopped off here while driving route 62 - had read some reviews and thought it looked quirky. I was not disappointed. The burgers were good, the fries delicious, the beer cold and plentiful (and on draft!) and as for the milkshakes. You need to try...one to believe it….AMAZING - but not for the faint hearted or sugar intolerant!More

Whenever I pass Barrydale, Diesel & Creme is a place I stop at. I haven't been in a few years, but a lot has changed, especially the menu. The menu is now more burger and wrap focused than before. However one thing remains unchanged: they...still pack a mean punch into each and every one of their extra thick milkshakes. For lunch, I ordered the pancakes, a chicken wrap and a chocolate milkshake. The system of ordering has changed too, one has to go to the counter to place your order now. Diesel & Creme is also known for its 'instagrammable' aesthetic. Overall, a cute place to stop for food and some rest.More

Hands down, the milkshake I had here was the best I've ever tasted. Creamy, flavorful, and pure indulgence in every sip. A definite must-try for milkshake enthusiasts

Curious place to stop for a bite or coffee on the road between Swellendam and Oudtshoorn. Full of gas station and car memorabilia, the service was excellent, the atmosphere good and coffee excellent. There's always something new to look at.

After numerous visits to Diesel & Creme we had a highly disappointing experience on 15 April 2023. A quick lunch of a chicken wrap and savoury waffle turned out to be a piece of uncooked dough (wrap) and dry almost bread (waffle). Management did offer...a refund, however a monetary return can never compensate a horrible experience. We will not be back.More

We ordered a couple of vegan shakes mango and granadilla and we received two glasses full of completely tasteless icecream, for the price of 120R each. A real rip off.

We love this place. Cool - makes you feel like on a true road trip. Could also be in California 😂 Good options for both Vegetarians and Meat Lovers. Oder at the bar and they will bring you the food.
