We stopped off at Claire's for a coffee and ended up getting the most delicious Apple Pie to share, it was so big that it was enough for the 2 of us! And absolutely delicious. Definitley a place to go for delicious cakes and good coffee as well as savourys to take home. A book for the self catering traveler.

Looks very good. A hell of a selecton of cookies and cakes and muffins. Anything to sin and abuse your body. But nothing for diabetics. What a shame.

Had the pleasure of visiting this cute little coffee and cake shop. There are not many independent coffee shops around anymore, so it was a pleasant surprise to find this one. A slice of carrot cake and their cappuccino is what I opted for and it was the best piece of carrot cake I've ever had. The cappuccino was also... More

My wife and I go to Clares whenever we're in Plett. The coffee is good, the food very average and the service sucks completely. This coffee shop is not service oriented and unfortunately neither is Clare. The waiters lack training and one gets the impression that they are doing you a favour.

The service was a bit slow, but the coffee was hot and they had skim milk, regular milk and cream! The cheesecake was the best I've had in a very long time.

Cake and coffee, while the wind is blowing you away outside. Clare's is busy and often a tight squeeze to fit in, but definitely worth it. I can recommend the carrot cake and the cheese cake. If you cannot make up your mind, the Best of Both Cake which is a combination of both! Great milkshakes for the kids.
