Stopped over for lunch whilst travelling from port Elizabeth to cape town. Sat in the winter sun eating delicious home made soup. Staff are very friendly. Will definitely make it a regular stopover.

I will keep returning for their milk-shakes. It is a nice atmosphere outside under the umbrellas. This morning however it was raining and we were seated inside for breakfast. Friendly staff and quick service. Manager keeps his eye on things to run smoothly.
