Delightful location and relaxed atmosphere. Good cakes. If you want to spend time having coffee then this is the place albeit not cheap.

We went to waterberry to have a lunch & cake. The quiche was average. Carrot cake nice. However, service was terrible and food took long. View very nice.

Having read mostly bad reviews about the service at this restaurant we decided not to go for breakfast but just go for cheesecake. I spoke to the owner and told her about all the bad reviews before we went and she was very surprised. I told her that everyone had complained about the poor and slow service to which she... More

Had breakfast here the other morning. Service was lacking, with a packed restaurant. In my opinion, service should always be top notch. Food was really good though. Definitely recommend it.

This restaurant is definitely worth visiting. However, don't go after 2:30pm as the most of the daily fresh stock will be sold and the kitchen close at 3:30pm. The cakes are fantastic.

Excellent but very busy tea room with shop attached. Home baking is mouth watering and shop stocks excellent range of local produce.

Ideal for breakfast or lunch, this restaurant has become famous for a large variety of freshly baked cakes, breads, jams and delicious breakfast served under large shady trees. A children's play area and the short "jungle walk" make this a favorite for the young ones. The setting, in a natural forest, and the full cream, no calories spared coffee, add... More
