This pleasant little coffee shop has changed hands but still delivers the same pleasant basic food and a nice vibe in the tranquil suburb of Hoekwil. Service was pleasant and our breakfasts were very good. Recommended Visit the "Big Tree" when in the nearby area.

Nothing better after walking the delightful and peaceful "Big Tree" forest walk nearby than to stop off at the Hoekwil Country Cafe for coffee and cheesecake. Even if you miss the forest walk, do not miss the cheesecake!

Went to the Cafe after visiting the Big Tree in Hoekwil. It is one of the coziest Cafes ever - and the service is great. I had my 2nd tramezzini and it was lovely.

A delightful little coffee shop tucked away on the top of the hill called Hoekwil, near Wilderness. It is a locally hidden gem which most people never find or find by chance. It's only a 5 Minute drive from N2, near Wilderness. It is a mix between a little local convenience store and a Coffee shop cafe. They serve the best voted cheesecake in SA (voted by Eat In). Three delicious flavours to choose from, being Lemon, Belgian chocolate and the best selling Blueberry flavour. The carrot cake is also a local favourite. You should not be disappointed. What is a good cake without a good coffee? They also make great Coffees, cappuccino s, Lattes and Mocha's. Coffee beans are freshly ground. Also a wide selection of teas available including Rooibos cappuccino. On the menu is a selection of breakfasts, Omelettes and toasted sandwiches. Takeaway drinks and food available. Locally produced vegetables, honeys and farm stall type eats also for sale. On cold days there is a cosy fireplace inside. On hot days it's a must to relax on the deck and watch country life go by with great mountain views. Kids are entertained on the swings and see-saw. From here you can visit our local Big Tree (over 800 years old) or take a hike on the many walks available. The old 7 Passes road also runs past, which used to be the main route linking George and Knysna
