“An amazing gem!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

We were traveling along the garden route & I was just thinking it would be great to have a cafe stop along the way. Just then we spotted Tredici. The exterior of the building is stylish & invites you in, the gourmet kitchen items for sale are enticing & inspiring and the range well thought out. The service is quick & friendly, the food is delicious and the hot chocolate is traditional & divine! We only stopped for coffee and a snack but it was well worth the time! A gem of a place in what seems like the middle of nowhere! Definitely recommend this to garden route travelers.

“A very good food stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

The design and interior decor has clearly been contemplated long and hard by the owner. Very enticing eats and great coffee. Definitely recommended.
Seeing as you have already broken your trip why not visit some of the local gifted artists including ceramicists and painters at their galleries. There are numerous local attractions and activities which can be enjoyed by young and old. Swellendam is a great place and if you can you should consider staying over.

“A fab stop during a long road trip but slightly pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

I had heard about Tredici and was looking forward to experiencing it. The owners won't be too happy to hear that it is very much like any other upmarket coffee shop/ bakery. South Africa does upmarket well. It is not a bad thing.

Our family enjoyed tea and baked goods. It was all lovely if overpriced. How else would an establishment survive in a small town if not to charge a little extra?

The bathrooms were immaculate. The service was great. We were greeted at the entrance, which is unusual but very nice. The views from the seating area is stunning. I wish them well.
