“Good location and good food and reasonable price !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Have taken a few of my guests there and not been dissapointed. Food good and service too. However they messed up my burger patty this week, asked for medium rare and received well done ??? No time to waste having the order redone, tight schedule when on tour.
Will return though !

“Terrible Experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

I have been to restaurants all over the world and have never experienced such rudeness from an owner. What should have been a pleasant family breakfast was spoilt by the bad food, and attitude of the owner. We complained about the food. Old stale muffins were used for the eggs benedict and the fried eggs which I ordered were not done easy over but the white of the egg was in fact still runny. When we complained the manager first refused to acknowledge that there was a problem with the food. I then over heard the owner telling her that 'they don't have to come back'. Upon challanging him on this, he then shouted at me. If that is the type of treatment that is given to paying customers then I would advise people not to go there. I would put this as the worst restaurant in Franschoek.

“Nice little restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012 via mobile

Apart from forgetting a side order the service was fine, though you need to be a little proactive in attracting the attention of the staff.

Food was tasty if a little over-oiled. Service was speedy. Good mocktail menu. Child-friendly with high chairs.

“Great Coffee & Cakes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

A cold and wet day, arriving from a meander this quaint Cafe was just what we were looking for! Warm and cosy! Crackling fireplace and brilliant service ! The coffee was perfect - had two cappuccinos - just could not resist! Their freshly baked caked selection is vast and do try the baked cheese cake and the Black Forest Cherry Cake!! Although we only had cake and coffee this Cafe has a lovely Lunch Menu as well. Absolutely delicious - Don't miss out ! Thank you for great service, food and warmth.
