Stopped over for an early morning breakfast. Terribly weak coffee which had to be send back to receive something which did not taste much better....not everybody know how to make/prepare plunger coffee! But worst was still to come with the eggs and bacon swimming in oil....and that at a rip off price of R50 where a similar breakfast will cost... More

Dear Mam Sorry to hear about your disappointment. We use one of the best coffees in the world Douwe Egberts. If you like strong coffee you should ask for espresso or Americano. We used top brand bacon and our cut is back bacon which has nearly no fat on. Unfortunately we have not got a breakfast pricing at R50.00 Next... More

We stopped in as a family for breakfast and found the service and variety on the menu excellent. Probably one of the better places for breakfast.

This restaurant has been in Dullstroom for a long time and one thing that stands out is it's consistency. You will always receive good food and good service. A pleasant enough setup but can be very busy sometimes (weekends especially) and whilst the service then slows down the food quality remains at it's usual standard.

I traveled through here on my way from Johannesburg to Kruger and it was well worth the stop. I rarely get proper South African food overseas and it was wonderful to see chutneys, pies, milk tart, and various other traditional foods done well. Stop here and then go further down the road to the Dullstroom Bird of Prey and Rehabilitation... More

We stopped by for lunch and sat outside on the patio by the beautiful garden area. The restaurant is pet-friendly and my Labrador enjoyed walking in the garden. We had the savory pancakes which were delicious and very filling.

We had Sunday morning breakfast and was really nice. Food well priced and presented. Like the idea of sitting outside in the sun and watched all the bikers passing by.
