This is a great place to stop for breakfast between Oudtshoorn and Calitzdorp. It is quirky and interesting and they have freshly baked farm bread. The service was very good and the prices are reasonable. We will definitely stop there again.

The roosterkoek was nice. The chickens are cute, but the service was not up to standard. I expected more.

An interesting shop almost in the middle of nowhere. Loads of gifts and little odds and ends for sale. Staff was very friendly and bought a few unique souvenirs for the house.

This is an interesting shop and restaurant with delicious home baked breads and cakes. Unfortunately our lunch of pickled fish was a little disappointing - the fish was tough and cooked in too much batter. But service was great from a host of friendly waiters.

I thought i would try them again after the 3rd culinary disappointment. Epic fail. I am a local and never had a good meal here. The venison pie is dry, not enough filling in their rooster brood and the toasted sarmies are not very tasty....More
