We always stop here for lunch when passing Humansdorp. They have a bakery & a shop with unusual & quaint items for sale - amongst other things - excellent artificial flowers. Also there is a great atmosphere, extensive menu & good food.

Humansdorp is really not much of a place but this is a little gem. Go there for breakfast, lunch or dinner and get ready to be surprised - nothing else to say :)

This has just got to be "THE" venue to visit here. An absolute "time-warp" of a place, combining a Victorian themed artifact shop (of note) with an eatery of awesome artifacts. You have just got to go visit! End of! AMAZING. ❤❤❤

I wasn't expecting anything special when i went to this little place but i had a great surprise. A delightful place - decorated in a victorian fashion. Lovely restaurant. Great choices on the menu and reasonably priced. A gift show displays some real little treasures.

This is a great daytime restaurant, serving breakfast and lunch. You walk through a funky antique and trinkets store to the restaurant. Service is great and the food is well presented at a reasonable price. (Rand 220 for two main courses and a bottle of wine)
