Very nice spot, good coffee and after 4 days in the mountains WIFI (yes) connected with the world. And by the way; the view is amazing. So when you are on your way to drakensbergen or coming back this is a perfect stop.

This restaurant and its roadsigns are easy to miss. It is also not in Bergville but in between on the road to the Royal Natal Nature Reserve. So the best advice is to follow the unmissable "Bintong and wifi" signs on the road. The open sandwich and the red cappuccino were great, the burger definitely above average, and the cheesecake...

Definitely worth a stop. Generous portions of good homemade food. The coffee is amazing served in either large or small le creuset cups. There is a play place for the children and funky decorated outside tables to sit and enjoy the view.

Quaint coffee shop with excellent coffee, great toasted sandwiches on homemade bread, lovely garden setting and friendly, efficient service. Signage on road not so clear - also says Outspan - so don't miss this stop when near Bergville.

We stopped over for light meal. They only cater for breakfast. However my wife had a toasted ham, cheese and tomato. Very tasty. I had a piece of boerewors and toast. Quality is good. Nice setting. They shoild add more variety and selection of meals. Hence my average rating.

We stopped by this little gem for breakfast and it was such a treat to drink cappuccinos and eat delicious homemade bread overlooking a lovely field of sunflowers. The service and the decor are both excellent. Definitely recommended.

We were staying up the road and craving some good sweet treats and on passing the sign for the Outspan on the main road through the Drakensberg decided to give it a go. The place was lovely and quaint, the staff very welcoming and the food delicious! We had a milkshake each, a lemon meringue and a muffin and then... More

The signs leading to the cafe are quirky and make you want to pop in. The chocolate muffins were scrumptious with good coffee. A great place to get off the road and out the car for a break.

Wow, we drove right past this place and decided to turn around and give them a try. Were we glad as this small gem in the berg offers the nicest coffee in the area and home baked pastries etc to die for... The owner and barista know what they are doing and have a passion for it. This comes throguh... More
