Superb Breakfast in a wonderful setting

One of best breakfasts on offer anywhere in the world in a wonderful setting in the Stellenbosch Valley. A totally enjoyable experience, all marmalades and jams made with fruit grown in their own orchards. So relaxing after a exhaustive night in Cape Town.

To start off with, the weather was glorious and the view from the terrace was beautiful. The service was excellent: friendly and efficient. The food was good. The menu is quite extensive and the prices are acceptable.. There is also a small delicatessen where I purchased the most delicious fresh figs.

Love the view, the food, the berry smoothies and cheesecake with berry coulis. Can also buy frozen berries and coulis and all sorts of other delicious things here to take home!

A glorious summers day and what a great day to drive to Helshoogte and experience this amazing restaurant. I took family and friends with and everyone had a really great meal and we all planned to be back to try the high tea. The ingredients in all the meals were so fresh and everyone had fun tasting each others meals.

We visited Hillcrest Berry Farm on two occasions. The service wasn't bad, but the menu is way overpriced for what you get. I had a three egg omelette with tomato and cheese for R60! The omelette was definitely made with only two eggs and wasn't seasoned, there was about an eighth of a tomato on and about 10g of cheese.... More

Whenever in the Western Cape I try to make a point of lunching at this casual "different" venue! Set outside Stellenbosch and the road to Franschhoek, it's an easy scenic drive. The mountain view from this eatery (especially if you sit outside under the big market umbrellas) is quite spectacular and worth the trip alone! The menu caters for breakfasts;... More

3 months ago, I visited Hillcrest Berries with a visitor to Cape Town from overseas. I was absolutely appaled by the treatment of the manager towards us from at first refusing us a table to personally attending to our order in an abrupt and uncouth way. A waiter who had witnessed this entire incident then gave us an email address... More

From the homemade raspberry iced tea to the chicken pie to the Berry custard tart the food was incredible. Service good and the bill for four very fair. A place to visit again and again!

I recently went there with friends for lunch and the food was utterly amazing. Everyone at the table stated how much they enjoyed the meals. The scenery is lovely and the shop selling everything berry -related was a real treat. Well priced and great value for money. A real gem.

Our table on the terrace looked onto the mountains. The weather was unbeatable, a lovely day. Everyone was happy with their meal, varying from scones to eggs Benedict. My vegetable wrap was tasty and more than enough. I was quite disappointed that I could not fit in a slice of the baked cheesecake as it is delicious. The store that... More
