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

Stopped at Kardoesie(small container made of paper) Restaurant on our way back home from Springbok. Kardoesie has such an easy laidback feeling as you enter the restaurant. Very helpful staff and quite eager to give you the best that their restaurant can offer in products...as well as service. We had some of their pies. The lamb pie was made inhouse and tasted really good. Their game/venison pie was also good and they served a most delicious chocolate cake which was heavenly. I think that if you journey to the Northern Cape, you should stop to enjoy the offerings of Kardoesie.More

On recommendation of friends we stopped for lunch at this great stopover along the N7. We had the homemade lamb pie, which was delicious. There is ample parking and even camping and chalets if you run out of day. Will stop here again when we're...around.More

Expected a bit less mainstream - fastfood approach and more laidback and farmstyle service. the breakfast was nothing more than average, though service was done with a smile. my suggestion, drive past to one of the many other venues just along the road..
