Excellent pancakes! I especially like the bobotie pancake and the dutch bacon. The sweet pancakes are also brilliant. Simple cafe-ish setting which is ideal for something quick. You can't go wrong with the pancakes here.

Best pancakes I have had, however the fillings can be a bit too much. The cinnamon and sugar pancakes were loaded with alot of sugar - will maybe tell them to go easy on my fillings the next time we there. Prices of savoury and sweet pancakes are very reasonable and they are open from 8am to 7pm everyday. Definately... More

My hubby takes myself and the kids here every now and then whenever we feel like treating ourselves to a sunday brunch. The serving sizes are huge and quite filling, the pancakes are awesome, and the scones are heaven. We have tried a few things from the menu and we have not had a bad meal yet. There is also... More

Wonderful place for a light meal and the BEST pancakes in a stylish intimate restaurant with verandah seating. We also love their beef and bean soup and baked cheese cake which we had last time we visited.

Interesting twist on pancakes. I never had anything quite like it in the U.S. loved the pork with apricot stuffed pancake. Fond memories here. Heading back to East Africa in May, hope there is a harries in Burundi.

Group of us went here as part of a Friendly Planet tour. The savory pancake was tasty, but the star of the show was the banana pancake with ice cream. This is a must try dish!

A real gem in this small town. I had heard the reviews and I have to agree these are the "best pancakes I've ever tasted". So very light and fluffy that you just can't resist having both the savoury and sweet yum yum. Four of us dined there at lunchtime and the firm favourites were the traditional bobotie filling and...

I always enjoy Harrie's. Have been to the Pretoria one many times over the years and the one that used to be at Cape Town's V&A Waterfront as well. When I find something I enjoy at a particular place, that is what I tend to re-order. I enjoy the Bobotie pancake. I agree with another reviewer that it could be... More

Went for a quick pancake and coffee on a coldish, rainy day. Good quality South African pancakes, but expensive and considering the smallish pancake and filling. Loved the traditional boboti filling, although it could have been more spicy to South African boboti standards (was almost bland).

Harries Pancakes is very good both with pricing and with quality!! A pancake with meat inside and a sweet one only costed me like 80rand, not even 6euros; I can tell the quality is very good! The service is a little bit slow due to the fact it's so good that it's always very crowded, but it's really worthed the... More
