“Haus Hans ?? Name does not live up to German excellence”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

We are regular visitors to the Grand cafe and it always was a pleasure to visit when Wendy was in charge. Now, the only light point is the welcoming and true service nature of Freddy our gracious host and waiter. We 'd also seen him running around, all by himself, trying to please all his clients during busy periods. The food however, lacks the finesse that we'd grown accustomed to and as per the review below, we were disappointed that something as simple as clotted cream was not available with the scones. The fact that it was unavailable was only announced by the kitchen, after it was prepared and served. It is important for the new owners to understand that word of mouth in a small town can make or break a business.

“Friendly but...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014 via mobile

I stopped for the breakfast, Everything is on "extra", even one toast for your omelette is 3 rands ! The yogourt was out dated of one month ! And don't talk to me about portion. .. Maybe a bad day.

Nice little eatery, usual coffee shop food, nothing special. It was very quiet when we were there so no ambience.
