Grahamstown is a small rural town which happens to have a Cathedral and University. During a winter midweek evening it is pretty quiet and we were pleased to find this excellent restaurant. The place was recommended by our guesthouse, A White House, and we were pleased with the choice. During the day it functions as tea rooms and a full... More

Love this restuarant. Friendly staff. Good and varied menu at a reasoable price for what is offered. At Festival time busy but still maintained good service. Went there about five times during the Festival and consistently good.

The green (cilantro and avo?) dressing is absolutely amazing, but haven't had a bad experience yet. Great location near the University and other local favorites. Staff is welcoming and helpful, will definitely have them cater my next event!

We dropped in at Haricots (after being dissapointed that the Observatory Museum was closed on a Saturday morning!) for coffee and something sweet. The filter coffee was great. Black and strong! However the fresh bakes stole the show. The flour-less chocolate cake was scrumptious and the apple and fruit pie with fresh cream was delicious. The lady next to us... More

After a less than satisfactory experience at Picnic in Grahamstown, I booked at a restaurant called Haricot’s. We were coming there after a theatre show and so we had arranged a table for later in the evening. We arrived and were seated promptly. The menu’s were presented to us and we were told what had been sold out. As we... More

The place was recommended to us, so we invited friends to join us there for breakfast. The coffee mugs were big and the coffee was good. I ordered the eggs Benedict. The menu said ham, but we were served bacon, which was more to my liking. Breakfast was great, done to perfection. Service was good and the venue beautiful. Highly... More

The friendly welcome we received at the Grab and Go window led us to decide to rather sit down for an early morning treat of delicious straight out-of-the-oven croissants, breakfast baskets and of the best cappuccinos, where the enthusiastic service from our waitrons continued! The prices are also very reasonable. Definitely deserves a return visit to sample the promising lunch... More
