This was our first, yet most certainly not our last, stop @ Kardoesie...and what an absolute gem of a discovery! Have been travelling this route for many years now, but for some or other reason we've always been too "pressed for time" to stop and/or...browse here. In fact, were it not for our daughter's request to get some home made jam & marmalade from our most recent trip to the Cederberg district, we'd most likely again just mosey on by and not be bothered to drop in. All I'll say is "we struggled to leave after discovering the little gems on sale here" Do yourself a huge favour when next in the area and/or enroute somewhere past Kardoesie. Lets hope you'd come out faster, and less heavy than we managed to do :-) The Bedfords.More

Ridiculously long wait for bland tasteless food. Salad served on a very hot plate.side order of chips was forgotten. Attention focused on mass production rather than quality. Go anywhere else.

Such a wonderful homely atmosphere, staff was friendly and the setting both inside and outside so relaxing. The food is well prepared and very well presented. Was too impressed and hungr, forgot to take a pic🤦‍♀️. The on site cafe has the most amazing variety...of teas to purchase, very difficult to choose just 1 box. All in all a must stop on N7 route.More

We popped in for a quick snack on our way to the Cederberg mountains. We both ordered their homemade pies, lamb and pepper steak with a side salad. The view from our table was spectacular with a few paragliders riding the warm wind currents. Their...Rooibos milkshake was very tasteful and is highly recommended. Good food and smiling waitresses.More
