We stopped for lunch on our way through Cradock and found True Living to be rated nr1.

Good food in a really different setting. Friendly service.

Definitely worth your while to stop at True Living.

Stopped in for coffee and breakfast while waiting for our car to be repaired. Always on the lookout for decent non-instant coffee, and we weren't disappointed. Found the surroundings very cool (as in far-out, not cold) and refreshing, and the staff pleasant. If you want regular, go to Wimpy.

Second visit in past week and both times excellent. Kidney & liver breakfast dish I had today was something different and very good, and loved the big pot of tea. Service friendly and efficient.

You simply cannot pass through Cradock without stopping in at this restaurant/shop/deli. The delicious piece of crunchie served with our cappuccino was a treat in itself. There is a retail section with quality hand crafted goods, home baked goods and preserves. Karoo fare at its best.
The restaurant serves the most amazing food and thanks to the lovely warm weather, we got to enjoy it outdoors. Highly recommended.
