Myself and a group of friends recently visited the Hillcrest with the intention on having a late morning brunch. Booking a table was fairly straight forward, and we were informed that breakfast was only served untill 11am (we made our booking for the same time), which is fairly standard practise. As we were not really there to specifically have breakfast,... More

Dropped by for a light meal and incredible view, which we certainly got. Being a gluten free eater I was wonderfully surprised by all the clearly marked gluten - free options available for me! I had the butternut and lentil salad which had just the right amount of bite for a sunny winter morning in the Cape. One of my... More

This restaurant has always been a must on any of our tours through the Cape. The view of the valley is breathtaking during summer and different in the winter, although still special. The food and pastries always good. The scones and tea are the way they should be. The staff were not under pressure but seemed a little quiet for... More

The Hillcrest Berry farmstall and restaurant is amazing where their own products from their farm are made /and or processed using handmade, old-school labour intensive methods, thus maximising local employment (which I believe is fabulous). The menu is great; with lots of choice - made to order using fresh produce (as far as I know). I loved the hazelnut hot... More

We invited a friend to lunch at Hillcrest Berry Orchard recently. The fire in the quaint stove made the place even more inviting. We ordered hamburgers and were served high towers topped with crisp onion rings and fries, all accompanied by their signature condiments in little jars. (Another patron passed by and remarked that she should have ordered it too!)... More

Went here for lunch with my wife and one of her primary school mates. Lovely venue with beautiful views and an outdoor terrace. Book ahead for the best seats.

We had lunch here on Sunday. It was a cold afternoon and the restaurant was warm and cosy. We wanted to order brie cheese and asked if it was ripe. The waitress had no idea what we were talking about. In the end we had bread and pate as well as some of the antipasti options on their menu. The... More

Drove to this beautiful spot for breakfast. The food was great except the variety for vegetarians is very limited. Pleasant, friendly staff and a wonderful shop make this a definite return visit venue.

Stunning views, great coffee and some of the best scones I've had in a long time, with the biggest selection of jams I've ever seen, to go with them. And they serve coffee in a generous plunger tht keeps the coffee nice and hot. Friendly staff and good value for money.
