Having read about the amazing apple pie we stopped on route from Windhoek to Sossusvlei and the apple pie was excellent, probably my best ever. Had anyone behind the counter managed to break a smile my rating would have been higher! On our return journey...More

Choice clearly varies according to time of day, so pot luck as to what's there when you arrive. Had the apple pie, very good and nice pastry. Service was efficient without being enthusiastic, but it is a road stop after all.

Moose is no more (RIP), but the apple pie (a cross between apple pie and apple crumble) lives on. Such is the fame of Solitaire and its apple pie that a new bakery with a thatched eating area has been built to cater for the...More
