“A Place to meet and eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Family driven by mother as manager and son as chef. Beautiful tranquil surroundings. They have two private areas ideal for bookclub meetings or birthday celebrations. Sit in the private courtyard or inside. If you visit the Garden Route, don't miss out on this one.

“The best Eggs Benedict”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

I am a fussy eggs Benedict addict, if it is not perfect or if i get a hint of a shortcut with the Hollandaise, Meade Cafe makes this time old classic smile - what a joy!

“nice but pricy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

kind of expensive for flowers on a plate - pretty and nice atmosphere but not a lot of food, lovely garden but service was not great, had to call back server to get parts of order that were omitted and by then the food had gone cold and my partner almost finished.

“Breakfast at Meade Cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

It was our daugther Une's 22 birthday, and a friend suggested Meade Cafe in George for breakfast! What an amazing experience!! The food, the service ... everything was just good, so good! If you are very hugry, try their full breakfast: bacon, eggs, 2 sausages, tomatoes, salad, chips, a bi...GG slice of bread, with butter and cheese .... but, ask for a doggy bag - you will have to take something home - IT IS JUST TO MUCH TO EAT!! Thanks to Meade Cafe. We will be back! SOON!
