This establishment has now reverted to its original name of The Courtyard. It is a special place to meet friends for breakfast or lunch. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food nicely presented. There is a varied menu to chose from and the salads are especially delicious. Their iced coffee is a dessert in itself!

We went there for a quick lunch on our way to Nelspruit and really enjoyed the surrounding of this café. There was seating inside & outside. There were several shady trees and parasols and the front of café was covered with grape wine which added to the beauty. The café seemed to be a popular place. The menu had very... More

We have been there quite often lately and we have always had really nice food and good service. It makes such a big difference when a place is "owner managed" - it just seems to make things run so smoothly. It is in a lovely setting - very peaceful under the trees.

It is set under big avocado trees. On a Thursday, Friday and sat evenings it's also open. Other days it closes at 4.30. Very overpriced food. Not much wow.

Whilst exploring Casterbridge Farm we had lunch at Ganache Café. We sat outside. It has a lovely atmosphere. I had a rye and chicken liver pate sandwich with grated cucumber topping. It was a well balanced sandwich. My husband had the chicken cous cous. Colourful presentation,flavours were great, chicken was unfortunately very dry, but the rest was great. Lovely atmosphere...

We have visited Ganache twice now, both times in the afternoon for cake and coffee. The service is lovely, and the atmosphere for the seating, both indoors and outside is absolutely perfect for a relaxed charming afternoon. We've tried four different kinds of their cakes and they are all absolutely exquisite!
