Hillcrest Berry Orchard jams used to be THE highlight of any trip to Franschhoek from Stellenbosch but the last two times I have been there, I have left rather disappointed. This past summer, we went there for my birthday and were very taken aback when we were duly informed that we were too late to order breakfast and too early... More

I love to sit outside and look at the magnificent mountain view. Wonderful scones with a very large selection of their jams. The lunch is simple and very tasty a must is their Babotie. Very good value for money.

Go here for the tea and scones - you get a choice of two of their jams to go with it and they serve high quality leaf tea. The view/setting is also great.

We had an amazing breakfast at Hillcrest. The location is hard to beat in the winelands, quiet spot with a lovely view over the valley. We went early (got there around 9am on Easter Monday), it was quiet and beautiful. The scones with clotted cream were amazing, huge selection of berry jams to choose from. I have visited during berry... More

Friends suggested we pop in. Great for edible gifts.. Frozen Berries extremely well priced! Pity we not locals! Bought delicious looking mustards, preserves and jams. Had tea outside overlooking the beautiful view.

Amazing views, close to other wine farms. Great place to start a day in the Stellenbosch area. Great tea/coffee selection and waffles and scones are freshly made.

The view of the Stellenbosch mountains in the background, the yellow-brown leaves of the berry orchard and grape vines in a cool autumn afternoon. That was the perfect backdrop to an exquisite meal at the Hillcrest Berry Farm. The farm store sells farm-made jams, honey infused with different flavors. The baked cheese cake with berry coulis is a must-have!

View from this place is too good. Food is not bad, but fresh berries with cream or ice cream is the best thing to have here. Service is reasonably good. Best time to visit is around lunch time but not in a hurry.
