Looking for somewhere to dine for lunch the signs for the Sleepers Restaraunt kept appearing so we decided to try it. A lovely find with a nice unhurried atmosphere which suits us to the ground. The food was excellent as was the service and an added bonus was the free wi-fi so we could check up on things back home.... More

Having a quick lunch at Sleepers did not work... the food was great, so was the WiFi. Waiting for more than 45 min is too long...

Excellent food, excellent service. We stumbled upon this gem and as tired traveller's we had an amazing experience. Can't wait to head back for our experience! Riana made sure that we were so well looked after and ensured that we will definitely return.

Situated in an old train station. Beautiful restaurant. Huge variety on menu. Good cappuccinos. Service a bit on the slow side but huge portions and tasty food worth the wait.

Our lunch stop here was a surprise! Friendly staff, excellent meals. Lovely to see that the old station has been revamped and buzzing with life and cooking. Chapeau!

We had lunch at Sleepers after a long day at the Blyde River Canyon. The frozen Margarita was sooo refreshing! They even have different flavours. The chicken and cornbread zarmie was also deliscious.
