Description: A delightful little coffee shop tucked away on the top of the hill called Hoekwil, near Wilderness. It is a locally hidden gem which most people never find or find by chance. It's only a 5 Minute drive from N2, near Wilderness. It is a mix between a little local convenience store and a Coffee shop cafe. They serve the best voted cheesecake in SA (voted by Eat In). Three delicious flavours to choose from, being Lemon, Belgian chocolate and the best selling Blueberry flavour. The carrot cake is also a local favourite. You should not be disappointed. What is a good cake without a good coffee? They also make great Coffees, cappuccino s, Lattes and Mocha's. Coffee beans are freshly ground. Also a wide selection of teas available including Rooibos cappuccino. On the menu is a selection of breakfasts, Omelettes and toasted sandwiches. Takeaway drinks and food available. Locally produced vegetables, honeys and farm stall type eats also for sale. On cold days there is a cosy fireplace inside. On hot days it's a must to relax on the deck and watch country life go by with great mountain views. Kids are entertained on the swings and see-saw. From here you can visit our local Big Tree (over 800 years old) or take a hike on the many walks available. The old 7 Passes road also runs past, which used to be the main route linking George and Knysna

This sells legendary cheesecake, coffee and excellent Calitzdorp honey (if you are not going to the Karoo).

My husband and I took a scenic drive there and we were so impressed with the location. Delicious cappucinnos, great french toast made with sourdough bread and my husband really enjoyed his breakfast bun. I also order a piece of carrotcake and Aidan's worldfamous cheescake for takeaway. The prices are so reasonable. A definite new favorite!

This cafe is in a small village 5 minutes from the N2 with only 3 tables inside and more seating outside with a see saw and swings for kids. Our breakfast was as good as can be expected, coffee was good and service friendly and fast. The cookies we bought there was devoured by the family. We didn't try their famous cheese cake, but saw how vast amounts quickly disappeared from the ample fridges.

A quaint little country cafe, serving good filter coffee, cheese cake, carrot cake and milk tart, baked in the old fashioned way. Wonderful if you wish to just enjoy the drive for the scenery and to experience a little bit of "plaas".

Lovely spot for lunch or breakfast. Went there for cheesecake and coffee which did not disappoint. Bought home made sourdough bread which was delicious. Also took some home made curry vetkoek home, very good. They have the most delicious cakes.
