We were driving from Stellenbosch towards Franschoek and were looking for spot with a view of the valleys.. Saw the sign for the orchard, a road going up the hill, so we turned left and tto our surprise we came across a very popular looking restaurant/shop. They were full full full, but within 20 mins (which you need anyway to browse all the possible produce on the shelf, jams, honey,fresh berries, etc..) they organized us probably the best table on the terrace.. with a wonderful view.. We had lunch, fruit shake, and coffee there, read our books, and relaxed.. Service was good, even in the midday rush, and so was the food.. For sure worth a stop..

Lovely setting on top of a hill. Sit outside for the scenic views while you enjoy your coffee with the scones. Amazing tasting scones. They also sell a lot of jams, etc. farm produce.

Stopped in for a light lunch, the food was local and very tasty.
I ate the chicken wrap and my wife had the quiche.
We followed this with the cheesecake and chocolate cake. Both were very tasty.

The meals were light and the coffee needs some refining, the cappuccino was not made traditionally and was quite weak.

Overall, the meal was good and worth the visit. There are fruity choices from the farm stall to take away with you after you meal.

We arrived here just before closing time, but they were still willing to help us. For the s ones we were to late though. The cheesecake was delicious and the scenery breathtaking.
They got a shop with all kind of jams and other fruit related products which we loved, since one of us is a blueberry farmer himself. Amazing what you can make with Berries.

We had lunch at the Hillcrest Berry Orchards. This is a place well worth visiting for casual lunch with a view! They also have a shop which offers a variety of home made jams, spices etc. The scenery is breathtaking and the food and service excellent!
