This is one of my favourite spots for a sit-down snack or a juice to catch-up with a friend and to pick-up some good bread for the household. It is a perfect spot to come with children, there is space to explore, loads of roosters cock-a-doodling around, chameleons to spot in the hedge and such a lot of lovely horses... More

Really well priced and a rustic feel, probably not for everyone though, smells horsey and has livestock wondering next to the tables. With some love and care it could become a delight for the little ones.

Very rustic coffee shop. Serves good coffee and bakes excellent bread and sweet goodies. Also, serves good sandwiches. If you want to take a 30 to 60-minute break during your day, this place is perfect.

Our GP recommended this outdoor cafe at the Eco Village near Pinelands. The Millstone Cafe is behind the stables and there is parking which was full at 11:00 on Saturday. No handicapped parking. There is a sign saying you can't bring dogs, but you can which makes sense since the cafe is outdoors and the ground is strewn with hay... More

We have been frequenting this venue for many years since the original owners opened it. It has changed ownership a number of times and now things are being left to run themselves seemingly without adequate management or training of staff. This is sad as it has a large following and great potential. Orders were incorrectly taken, wrongly delivered, or not... More

We popped in on a Sunday morning for a coffee. It was moderately busy. We ordered 2 cappuccinos and waited. 5 minutes later somebody asked if we'd ordered. We confirmed the coffee order. 5 minutes after that somebody checked and we confirmed the order. After 15 minutes we complained and we were told it would be with us directly. After... More

This is a great place to unwind and have some breakfast or even just a couple of coffees and fresh juice while the kiddies play. There is a nice outdoor play area for kids - all wooden - including a treehouse. There are horse rides available too. Food is all very organic and tasty but don't go there expecting to... More

Millstone at the Oude Molen Eco Village is a farmstall and café in an eco village. The wholesome food may take a bit long to prepare but it is individually made and when it arrives it is well worth the wait. I like it because of its relaxed ambiance. It is set in a natural setting. Dogs and pets are... More
