“Moose got game”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

The apple pie is world famous. The bear claws as we say in the states, or pigs ears, as Moose calls it, are divine. This place would be famous in hipster Brooklyn, too :)

“A bakery where?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Middle of Namibian desert and you come across a bakery. Its a good one too. You can choose from a large range, from stodge to light pastries, all freshly baked.
Coffee is from a machine that you serve yourself, so you are left to the vagaries of the machine and milk cartons.
That said, its a great place to stop for an hour or so after all that driving and eat an extravagance. The pastries last at least two days so you can save a bit or buy some more for later :-)

“Best Apple pie in the middle of nowhere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Moose and his staff whip up some tasty treats for dessert in the desert! The apple pie is very good- share unless you are very hungry! This is a great place to gas up, stretch your legs, take photos and enjoy the pastries.

“Yummmmm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

This bakery has an impressive choice of HUGE treats to choose from, at an impressively reasonable price. I enjoyed a pizza croissant roll and my other half had a portion of apple pie. Delicious!! This filled us up for the day, and along with 2 drinks cost us less than $5USD.
I liked that you can choose whichever exact item you like, therefore picking the size you like (there's a big variation!).
It's a nice place to sit out and feed the birds with the final crumbs of apple pie.
