Meade Cafe certainly has a HUGE menu of teas, frozen take away meals, breakfasts, etc etc, but we were not brought all the menus on our visit. It can be a bit confusing, as there is just so (too) much to choose from. Also, is it a cafe or a print shop/office?? My baked cheesecake was dry, not creamy and... More

Lunch is a must here, its a quiet and tucked away spot great for meetings or simply a bite to eat. Service is prompt and the food is great. Highly recommend the mocha

We frequent this restaurant for an array of gorgeous teas - Sencha Champagne (green tea), Falling in Love Again (fruit tea) and Crispy Dream (fruit tea) being our favourites. The inside seating is cozy for cooler days or you can sit outside in a beautiful garden setting which is our personal choice if the weather permits. The food looks lovely... More

Go here often for breakfast, and their cake and coffee special. Tranquil setting, with friendly service. Food is always good, and cakes are more often than not freshly baked!! Highly recommended!

Meade Cafe is a lovely place to relax and enjoy afternoon tea and cake. They serve a verity of different teas or you can enjoy a cappuccino. The interior is very tastefully done, however I enjoy the beautiful courtyard when having lunch or afternoon tea.

This cute little place has the most wonderful ambiance. I was not expecting the selection of tee to be so impressive and was pleasantly surprised by the desserts on offer. Perfect place for tea and cake on a lazy afternoon.

Meade Cafe had been on my list to visit for many months, in December we finally headed to SA and to George. My main interest was the Meade Shop, this turned out to be a huge disappointment and due to the limitation of the stock (their website paints such a different picture) we did not place the cafe on the...

Really like the different types of teas they have and the way its done. If you want something different to the normal rooibos or five roses go have a drink here. Very interesting flavours and the cake is also good
