“Wow, it's great to be back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2011

We come to Prince Albert at least twice a year and no visit is complete without a visit to Cafe' Albert. Whether it is breakfast, brunch, lunch or afternoon tea or simply some coffee and cake, we have have never been disappointed. The food is always freshly made, William is very welcoming, helpful, encouraging and always have some interesting snippet for us. It is great to be back; breakfast was great....

“Not very inspired, but good basic cooking”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2011

Not many choices for vegetarians. But adequate for a quick, basic meal. They unfortunately do not accept credit cards.

“Nice place with honest home made food; not fancy at all, just good food and lovely service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2011

With only a couples of places to go to for dinner this is a really nice place to pick. Though it's a proper restaurant it's more like joining for a home cooked meal. i.e. No hardcore kitchen professionals at work here but good and honest food.

“A TRUE KAROO GEM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2010

This small, beautifully situated Cafe - on the main street and blessed with a shaded 'stoop' or verandah - is a Karoo Gem worth the detour and perfect for a hearty breakfast or leisurely delicious lunch. The menu is original, fresh and always prepared to order. Steaming chicken pot-pie in its own ramekin is a speciality. A lovely range of coffees and heavenly chocolate cake!
