What a lovely discovery. This working berry farm has a very popular cafe-restaurant and shop offering everything berry and much more besides. We opted for lunch here and the meals we had - their gourmet pizza and the smoked mackerel salad were delicious. The views from the restaurant are lovely but service was quite slow - not that we minded too much as the fire was deliciously warm on a cold snowy day.
We bought some berry liqueurs, fynbos honey and jar of nougat spread. I will be going back to buy my berry plants from the farm.

We've been here so often, and yet I never get bored of coming back. Love the food and the gorgeous view, and the fact that all their berries are grown locally.
Also nice to combine a breakfast or lunch with a little fresh berries shopping.

Although i have never had a full meal here, i frequent Hillcrest berries at least evey 2-3 months.
Their scones and cream come with a variety of jams and are top class. An intersting drink, on which I am hooked, is the hot chocolate with chilli. This is like the expressos of chocolate and really is an incredible hot drink. The range of berry juices is endless and the deli is well stocked and good value.

The Hillcrest Beryr Orchard has a lovely (affordable) menu, perfect for a lunch or coffee date. The cheese platter is definitely worth it, and the view is just terrific.

Hillcrest is a great place to visit for breakfast, brunch or lunch. The options on their menu are ample. I recommend that you opt for any dish that includes berries since that is their speciality! The scones with a choice of two different jams is a classic and personal favourite. I tried the mixed berry smoothie and it was absolutely delicious! Their drinks menu has more options than many other coffee shops that I know. The hot chocolate section looks especially intriguing!

Sitting on the patio outside, a customer has a splendid view of farms and mountains. The staff is friendly and the shop/deli is great. It sells all of the jams that Hillcrest offers, as well as berries, chutneys, fresh bread, nougat, etc.

A visit to Hillcrest is well worth the short trip from Stellenbosch.
