The staff were friendly - smiles and laughter accompanied the service. As a vegetarian I found several dishes to choose from which was a welcome change. All meals served were delicious.

We stopped by for lunch. I had the red pasta and my husband had the croque poulet sandwich - both delicious! For dessert we shared the baked cheese cake. This is definitely a worthwhile lunch stop.

We had a very nice lunch at the Cafe. The sandwiches and dessert were fresh and tasty, and the owners and server made us feel at home. We chatted about the area and current events in SA and the US. And the Cafe is right...More

We stopped off here for a coffee and fell for the cheesecake, absolutely delicious! As it was mid-afternoon we were the only people there and so the service was good and the atmosphere relaxed.
