The perfect place for breakfast in Clarens. The food was excellent as were the owners and staff. We stayed for 2 nights in the boutique hotel accommodation upstairs. spotlessly clean, nicely furnished and good value.

Good day and thank you for your review. I am not sure how you would have purchased day old croissants … we bake over 200 croissants a week, all baked daily, and IF there are any left from the previous day, they are most certainly...More

We visited one morning as soon as they opened and are glad they did. They bring out their pastries piping hot from the oven. Their almond croissants are wonderful. There are also lots of local products - jams, candies, sauces, and the like. Their packages...of chocolate chip cookies were a hit with our son. They no longer do table service but you can collect your food and coffee and sit out one of the tables on their patio and watch the world go by. Given how much we enjoyed the experience the first time, we went again the next morning!More

We celebrated a family member's 40th birthday in Clarens over the weekend. The chocolate birthday cake, complete with sparkler thingy and candles, was delivered to the restaurant. The cake was delicious and the attention to detail very much appreciated, Thank you.

Although when we were here their cafe seemed to be closed, we however did buy their freshly baked bread and pastries. They bake the most amazing ciabatta bread and what’s great is you can order and pick up the next day at around 10:30am when...the bread has just come out the oven! They also have a huge selection of pastries as well which you just get their early to get otherwise it’s sold out.More
