Sophia van der Merwe created a wonderful eatery in the middle of Willowmore, serving scrumptious meals in an unique personally created space. The lamb disk of the day is a recommendation, as well as her famous carrot cake!

We had breakfast at this stunning coffee shop that was beautifully presented. The food is of the highest standard and the decor must be the talk of the Karoo. Do not pass this town but stop at this quaint place.
