“Very nice food and coffee, a good stop off!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Lovely place to stop for drinks and snacks - we called in by chance and had a very nice late lunch, the quiche and cakes were really tasty. We had a good table on the verandah and they also have strong wifi which is good for catching up!

“Best Apple pie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Best apple pie with real fresh cream worth a stop every time passing Prince Albert. Seating inside or on the stoep and watch the passing trade. Also stock fresh figs in season.

“Breakfast at the Lazy Lizard”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

After trying other places in the town, we finally and luckily found ourselves at the Lazy Lizard where the coffee was authentic and good, the service brilliant and the food fab. Save yourself the trouble of trying other places and go there first!

“Legendary Apple Pie, Great For Family Meals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

All our meals were very good basic fare and Lazy Lizard is the best place to socialize for travelers. During our many visits we had the home pies, quiches, curry & rice finished with carrot cake & the legendary apple pie (best you will find anywhere). All these were very good. Breakfast omelette was also better than expected. Coffee we stayed with French press as the cappuccino was only served in micro cups. Service from wait staff needs to sharpen up as we found them slow and inattentive. All round we really enjoyed the extra friendliness of everyone and Lazy Lizard was definitely our fav place in Prince Albert

“Mixed feelings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Lamb curry and apple pie : fantastic! Hamburger: good. Bobotie: not bad, but vegetables on the side tasted like frozen, then microwaved and not seasoned (i.e. horrible!) Ambience... what ambience? Service - TERRIBLE! (Slow and clueless)
