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.

This comes throguh... More

We stopped here for morning coffee and muffins on our way into Bergville on a slightly cool drizzly morning. My first reaction was "What a quaint little place". The setting and the views are very picturesque. We sat outside and had birds hopping around on the ground. Wow what a pleasant surprise! Great friendly and attentive service and really excellent...

I ... LOVED ... this place. It was the perfect break for us after a long day of hiking. The Biltong shop and the coffee shop, I guess, are owned by two different people. I think they work together cuz the wifi is in the biltong shop, but accessible to the area. I found the wifi to be hit or... More

On our way we saw this cute little place near the road. It has a fresh and welcoming look. We ordered a cappuccino and a carrot muffin. It was perfect! The cupcake was fresh and so tasty. The cappuccino was so good, it was warm and the coffee beans had a soft and nice taste. Also very friendly and polite... More

As I am from the area I can proudly say they make the best Cappucinno in the Berg. Ideal stop when travelling down Oliviershoek towards Bergville. Owner run with friendly staff. Safe childrens play area and pet friendly. Would definitely recommend a stop even to grab a cup of coffee to go.

The best coffee in the area, actually, one of the best coffee in SA! Very nicely decorated and very welcoming.
