We have been here a few times and have not been disappointed once. The eggs benedict is to die for, and the scones are delicious. The filter coffee comes in an actual plunger so you can choose when to pour your own coffee. It's also got a shop for the berry farm, so jams and all sorts of treats (like... More

This is a lovely spot with some incredible views unfortunately the staff are often complacent and a touch lazy. I have seen them drop cutlery on the floor only to pop it back on the table for a guest to later use. Hygiene really should be a priority when working with food. I have never been here when they haven't... More

We stopped their on our way to Franschhoek for some refreshments...we were fortunate to get a table as the place was busy busy busy...we got the only vacant seat which was inside. We ordered our teas and coffees with the freshest scones and muffins. The setting is most tranquil and the service impeccable....this is a "must do"if you are in... More

My husband and I love the Hillcrest Berry Orchard, especially in winter after we had a bit of snow on the mountains - great views of the mountains and setting. Visited again in July 2015 to have our regular favourite - scones with a selection of their famous jams and coffee. We were very disappointed because the scones were smaller... More

Just amazing surrounded by the orchards, birds chirping and eating off the ground around you. The service was great and the food brilliant. The deli has wonderful foods, sweets, biscuits and their fresh bread is a must. I have been there on numerous occasions it's a place you will never get tired of visiting.

This is one of the places with the best views for me. You have to sit outside to appreciate it. Nice collection of jams and goodies to buy. The scones and muffins are good. The rest of the menu is okay

Little place hidden in the bushes around a corner. A true hidden place. The vibe is inviting and deli is well stocked with a variety.

Wonderful location in a valley with nice views from a large terrace. Also inside it's cosy at the fireplace in winter. Large variety of delicious dishes, snacks and sweets, most with their own berries. Can not even say which one is the best, all devine... Bring some time, often the service is not that quick, but worth the wait. Good... More

Stopped at Hillcrest Berry Orchard while touring wine country on the recommendation of a Cape Town restauranteur. We were unbelievably disappointed with the service here. Despite a number of employees in the shop / restaurant area, we were not greeted, no one spoke to us, and we were not offered any help. While we like good service, we paid no... More
