“Very wide selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Whether you like sweet or harty pancakes, or even if some of your party do not really like pancakes but like ice, etc... you should pay his place a visit. Yet, don't count on it to be alone. There are always many people in the place, which on its own is already a very good sign. There are also some nice shops nearby.

“Pancakes good but service slow”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

There is a huge selection of pancakes with various selections - the food is always fresh and of a high quality. The same cannot be said of the service staff. Drinks orders took a long time - I eventually got up to go and collect it at the service station as it was just standing there for 5 minutes. The service is also not very friendly and slow.

“Chocolate mousse pancakes! OMG”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

We were passing through Graskop en route to Kruger and had breakfast at Harrie's. I chose the chocolate mousse pancakes with whipped cream. This was SO rich for breakfast, but absolutely delicious. My son had plain pancakes with just a sprinkle of sugar and the cream and enjoyed it also. The pancakes are something between what North Americans call pancakes (5-6 inch fluffy griddle cakes, usually eaten with syrup and/or fruit) and crepes (larger, very thin, plain wraps for a variety of fillings, sweet or savory). These pancakes are similar to what my German mother used to make: dinner-plate sized, thicker than crepes, but thinner than griddle cakes, not fluffy, more dense, typically served rolled up with sugar or any kind of filling inside.
Who cares? They are so good that when we left Kruger nine days later, we made a detour to have brunch at Harrie's again.

“Our worst service experience in 20 days in South Africa. Big disappointment”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

On a busy sunday (august 26, 2012), we got the most unpleasant and unfriendly service of all our south african trip. No welcome, barely a hello, refused to move us to a table which was duly available and less exposed to sunlight. Pancakes served almost cold, and an unbelievable absence of thank you when we paid. The icing on the (pan)cake was the look on the face of the manager that day to all people who were queuing to pay: unbelievable. The quality of the food is in line with the reputation of the place, but do they really deserve the massive arrivals of tourists they get ? I'm not sure. It makes me feel complacent about the experience that tourists experience in some restaurant in my home country ... France. Which says a lot, doesn't it ?
