Always a crowd pleaser and worth a visit if you can sit outside, just to appreciate the view. Always some debate about whether the cream is true clotted cream from our English friends & guests (especially when they're from Devon), but either way, it works with the scones. Probably worth sharing unless you are ravenous or keen to ingest lots... More

I have just returned from a visit to hillcrestberry farm. We had tea and scones with jam and cream. They were delicious. It's about two years since my last visit and I was surprised and disappointed that the place still looks so drab and old fashioned. The furniture inside and out needs major attention. Inside should be replaced, it is... More

e were in a small tour group and our guide suggested we go to Hillcrest for lunch. I am so glad that we went. What a view from the café over the beautiful mountains. We would have loved to sit outside near the fruiting mulberries but unfortunately it was just starting to rain. I had the vegetarian quiche with salad... More

I was pleasently surprised by some changes made to the menu and service style since my last visit a year or so ago. The menu had so many sumptuous sounding options it made it difficult to choose just one option for breakfast. In the end I had the french toast and enjoyed in thoroughly. The staff were extremely friendly and... More

A lovely setting, lovely views great jams but the service is very slow and the staff not very enthusiastic to help. You wait a very long time for assistance and this on a quiet day ! I always stop here when visiting the western cape but honestly I only stop to buy the jam as the rest is nothing to... More

I've been to Hillcrest Berry Orchard twice for breakfast, after hearing that it was a regular outing for others. While the setting (and the drive there via the Helshoogte Pass) is picturesque, I was underwhelmed after the first visit. We gave it another go this weekend, but my first impressions were just confirmed. The coffee was very good. The breakfast... More

The assiette of pork must have been the smallest,tasteless main meal I have ever had at R 140. All three of us agreed on that. The cheesecake was delicious but could not erase the lunch disappointment.

A not to be missed spot when visiting the Western Cape. The menu has changed, the staff are still very efficient and the food still good. Coffee is great as always.The best part is the retail therapy after the meal in the farm shop.
