We visited Darling on 8 January. The Chicory Cheese Hotel looked attractive. We felt like coffee. We were showed to a quaint tea garden outside. That is where service ended. We sat in the corner forever. We decided to leave. We were ushered out with guests leaving... nobody even noticed that we left. Locals told us it was under new management. We told the locals it was a 100 times better to visit the Marmelade Cat with excellent coffee and a delicious lunch and superior service.

This restaurant is not on the main road, but is easy to find. The food and service is super. We were here for tea and breakfast. The carrot cake was incredible! I highly recommend a visit if you're in the area.

A hidden gem in Darling. Skip the commercialised places. The food, the vibe, the owners, makes this hidden gem worth your while.

Driving through Darling on our way to Franshoek we happened upon this Cafe. Don't be fooled by their name, as I was... There is no cheese on the menu but all about healthy stuffs.
My husband and I had the Vietnamese Spring Rolls and they were fresh and delicious! Venue has a lovely atmosphere and the staff were super.
Only downside, the flies outside! As the waitress said "Darling flies are Very rude!" and indeed they were.
