Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stopped off for a quick break en-route to Cap Town and ended up not wanting to leave. Had delicious roosterkoek ( home baked 'breadrolls" ) and scones in the courtyard where turkey, ducks, chickens and the ( very well mannered) dog vied for our attention ( and crumbs ). A delightful roadtrip find.

If you're travelling between Oudtshoorn and Calitzdorp, do yourself a favour and pop into this wonderful 'padstalletjie'. Fantastic coffee, friendly staff, delicious food and a vast range of homemade gifts and Klein Karoo treats to buy and take home.

The owners were lovely and off for the weekend and nobody else was staying so it was a really lovely experience just to sit and enjoy the beautiful quietness of the area. Really good idea about having breakfast in their own café just up the road - interesting gifts and tasty meals to be had either as a hot dish...

Lovely stop on Route 62. The veranda is cool on a hot Karoo day. The fresh roosterkoek with biltong and fig is recommended as well as the pancakes. Kids loved watching the chickens.Wines,preserves and crafts also on sale.

I always stop here for breakfast when I'm visiting the area. Love the setup and variety of items on sale. Met the owners before and very friendly etc. Sadly this time I was disappointed :( Staff friendly and helpful. Ordered roosterkoek, coffee and hot chocolate. After 20 min I stood up to ask where our drinks where. We sat inside...

Stopped for a quick bite to eat. The kudu steak pies are reasonably priced and packed with gamey meat - very tasty. Interesting bric-a-brac in the shop too. Prices seem reasonable in comparison to other local stops

We enjoyed the delicious platter for two washed down with their homemade lemonade on the lovely cool verandah in the Karoo heat - Bella Karoo is a little oasis and worth a stop. There's also a small shop.
