This was the best restaurant and food we had in our 3 week road-trip through the Eastern Cape. Nice outside seating area under the trees, and great service. Highly recommended!

Lovely coffee and burger had in the garden of this charming little cafe. The owner is lovely and tries her best to make you feel welcome and well fed. Coffee was excellent, as well as our food. Very impressed overall. Just call in advance, in...my experiences they are not always open.More

Cool decor, 3. Food, 4. Homemade ciabatta bread with all breakfast, yum! Well done guys.More

We popped in here on a cold rainy morning. We were well received and everyone at the table enjoyed their meals. The bread (Ciabatta) in particular was fabulous and the toppings for our sandwiches were super. Well done!

The food was great and service! We were there for breakfast and loved the food. Not a sea view restaurant but we sat outside in a lovely garden.

What a great find.. had a delicious lunch and returned the next day for breakfast. The restaurant is tastefully decorated with some quirky nice little touches which adds to the atmosphere. The food was excellent, nicely presented with some personal touches. Could spend hours here...taking it all in. If only I can keep this secret to myself and no one else finds out about it !More
