Lovely to sit here on the deck on a good day & watch the passing parade while sipping a glass of wine or coffee. The menu is exciting & quite broad .

Hubby and I stopped here for a few drinks and spent a lovely 2 hours just watching the world go by. It faces the main road of Prince Albert but it isn't a busy village so the little traffic there was didn't bother us. We sat facing the majestic Swartberg Mountains. Although we didn't eat, the menu was well priced... More

Loved their milkshake! If you are looking for a place to have lunch in town, the restaurant will do. Friendly staff and vintage feel.

Their Coffee Shake is the best. A definite must for those enjoying a strong and very tasty shake. Their lunches are also great. Try a home made pie with salad and chips.

We stopped here during the morning and I had a delicious piece of lemon tart with an iced coffee. The atmosphere is relaxed a cooled with a fine spray. A very nice tea break after a long walk in the heat.

We wanted to do lunch and only ended up having drinks. It was not busy and waited at least 30min for water and the rest of our drink. The staff seemed a bit grumpy when asked when our drinks where coming. Not a good experience at all.
