My family and I traveled through Lydenburg and stopped for lunch at this charming place. It has a fabulous layout with tables and seating outside and what looks like a cool bar for the evening. Our food was wonderful and the service very attentive. Highly recommend!

Ive been here now multiple time and every time I had the best service. The menu here has great variety and they also sell amazing fresh bread and other products. The bar in the back is a perfect place to have special events. They also have live music some times.

The owner goes out of his way to make every client feel at home. His team are friendly and helpful and the baked bread are divine. It is a place where the whole family can enjoy themselves.

I have become one of Cafe Crust's regulars! This nook in a quiet part of town has become the gathering place for locals and foreigners alike - simply because of its good food and lovely ambience. And now that they have added more space and more umbrellas, I am sure we are in for more fun.

After a quick search on TripAdvisor, and looking for something other than the usual fanfare of Pancakes at Dullstroom, we decided on Cafe Crust due to the #1 of 13 rating for restaurants in Lydenburg.

Cafe Crust occupies interesting and innovative premises, being a converted old house, with the entire yard taken up by a network of interleading walkways linking ding 'pods' in the garden, so that groups of people can sit quite privately from each other. The concept works, and is complemented by totally dedicated and involved owners and really well traing staff. It... More

It was a good place to have rest from long day, to enjoy the food and live music. If in Lydenburg - worth a visit
