We ordered eggs Benedict for three people and French toast with blueberries forbreakfast. Beautifully cooked and presented. This restaurant has fantastic views whilst sitting outside. Well worth visiting

Always a delight to visit. We stopped for coffee and cake. Service was very good and the staff come over more than once to check that everything was fine

We stopped over at Hillcrest on our way to Franschoek. Their scones are really nice and fresh. Their tea is also nice and with the spectacular view of the mountains ons just sits in awe of the beauty of creation.
