“Must try Pancakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Well after seeing the americans eat pancakes i was a little dubious getting in the que, but clearly it was a very busy place, and the other restaurants didn't have any cues at all. We sat down and looked the the menu. Diversity on a scale never imagined, savory, sweet, veg, fruit and meat.... And they all worked.... we had two each and couldn't fault them, price was reasonable, as to was drinks. Recommend this highly.

Seating and decor could improve a little, but so Busy!

“Great!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

A very enjoyable meal! My girlfriend has been raving about this place since her last visit to South Africa.

It was very busy at lunch and very popular, the pancakes are very good but the milkshakes are even better!

The portions are generous and filling, the service was a tad harried but it was very busy so is to be expected.

“the origin of the pancake legend!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Harrie's is the foodie destination of the area during the day. This is the place that created the pancake theme for so many other little outlets in mpumalanga. Excellent variety and quality. Not limited to pancakes either. Their carrot cake has just taken top honors on their menu in my humble opinion. Good coffee too. Also a nice spot to sit and watch the passing parade. BUT service is variable. You have either a sweet or sour service experience - no telling which. Still, not to be missed.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Our tour guide from African Safari took us to Harri's. a popular tourist stop. We had never experience so many pancake choices. Being adventurous we had a chili con carne with sour cream and cheese pancake, a chicken liver pancake, and a fresh fruit pancake. Homemade batter for pancake and generous serving. Worth a stop

“Very wide selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Whether you like sweet or harty pancakes, or even if some of your party do not really like pancakes but like ice, etc... you should pay his place a visit. Yet, don't count on it to be alone. There are always many people in the place, which on its own is already a very good sign. There are also some nice shops nearby.
