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.

We shared the pub platter and it was great! Lots of different things to eat and everything was homemade. A very nice surprise!

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.

A lot of the restaurants in Prince Albert were closed after breakfast, or only served meals that seemed fit for dinner- not the coffee shop. The service staff was attentive and the burger with cheese sauce was excellent!

We had breakfast there and the food and service was really excellent and very well priced. A very good place if like me you need a decent cup of cofee to get the day started.The owner and his wife came to see if everything was all right. We felt like locals. Has a nice shaded outside area that you can... More
