We go there regularly when visiting the Pretoria Botanical Gardens. The ambience is pleasant among the trees and shrubs... The service is always friendly and prompt. The food is ample and very tasty and some of the cakes are to die for!

Just spent a beautiful afternoon in the botanical gardens; rounded the day off with a visit to The Milk Plum Cafe. What a bitter end to an otherwise sweet day: ordered a cold non-dairy smoothie and received a smoothie containing white hot chocolate from a...More
