We had lunch here while road tripping Route 62. I have eaten here once before back in 2011 and back then it was good value. Now not so much. I don't understand or agree with the Trip advisor certificate of excellence at all. There was nothing excellent about it. The table was dirty and the garden area seemed rather unkempt.... More

My husband and I stumbled into here on a long car trip and we're glad we did - Terri and her staff are super friendly. She gave us lots of tips for our next desitnation. The best part was I got to watch my delicious wood-fired oven pizza being cooked. Nice outdoor are lets you stretch your legs on a... More

We were only there for light meal, but the service was good, as was the food. The restaurant is very colorfully decorated, and the shop includes intriguing locally made items. It was a good, although brief, visit.

We stopped off at the Jam Tarts on our epic journey from Plettenberg to Gansbaai and had a quick bite to eat. We had delicious toasties and coffee. There are a few places to eat in Barrydale, but are quite sure we picked the right one! We sat outside in the garden area which was very rustic.

We had lunch here en route to Cape Town. Staff were friendly and the cafe itself quirky and unusual. The food was OK, but very well priced. The coffee was a bit rubbish. Worth a stop just for the experience.

We made a quick stop here for some coffee and ended up having some of the jam tarts on offer as well. They were truly delish and the service was great. The pizzas and fresh pies also looked amazing!

Near the start of the main road when entering from Ladysmith, this quaint restaurant has an outside gazebo area where one is made to feel at home. Our choice of meal was brought quickly and the owner came out to make sure we were happy despite the fact that the restaurant was busy. Yummy crispy toasted sandwiches served with a... More
