Best chocolate mousse and carrot cake in the business

Harrie's has become an institution, but be sure not to keep to the conventional options only. I have not had better chocolate mousse or carrot vake anywhere else.

Over the years we have noticed the decline. Harries rely on their reputation and setting but sadly, the 'weight' is swinging towards not visiting Harries again. The pancakes are not that exceptional whilst the price and service is really bad. You wait forever for service and R15 for an espresso cup size optional extra ice cream is just too much!... More

"July 5 breakfast: One group of friends had gone to Pilgrim's Rest and were raving about the Harries Pan cakes. So, one fine Sunday morning, we drove down to Pretoria to have breakfast at Harries. We had booked a table the day before - do your reservations as the place tends to get full. The place is nicely done and... More

All bikers doing their breakfast run, or anyone else visiting Cullinan, should not miss out enjoying a pancake at Harrie's pancake. Wide variety to choose from, both sweet and savoury. The pancakes are light and fluffy and the fillings are generous portions. For the Bikers, this is the place to see and be seen as the restaurant is conveniently located... More

This restaurant is in a busy, strip-type shopping center, so don't expect a lot of ambience. But do expect to experience great food! This isn't your typical house of pancakes. You choose the filling you'd like and it comes wrapped in a pancake. There Re both sweet and savory options. The "bobotie" - a curried meat filling - was excellent.... More

I have always wanted to pay Harry's a visit. A pancake hut simply cannot be that good to survive for so long. And it is! The pancakes are so good. Light and fluffy. The fillings are very specil.

We were taken here by our guide after a wonderful panorama tour. We had been told about the pancakes by friends and we were not disappointed. They were delicious. We had a savoury chilli one and my husband and I shared a fruit and ice cream one. They are huge and very tasty. Highly recommend.

Harry's pancakes are really tasty, possibly the best in town today however I was really disappointed with the manager there. A black dad and is daughter ,she's wheelchair bound came to the restuarant and tried to sit on an open table near the entrance, it was easier for the the wheelchair to move at the edge of the restuarant,the lady...
