“New ownership and not the same place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

We used to love this place. The food was good and even though the service was slow we didn't mind the wait knowing what was coming out of the kitchen. The new owners are very pleasant and the portions are ample, pricing is also good. The missing ingrediant is that quantity does not replace quality and serving huge portions that are heavy and filling does not make up for losing the finess that used to be there. The pizzas are huge but thick and doughy. The breakfasts are served with vast quatities of ciabatta and it is all jsut a bit too much. The setting is still good and the service is fine.

“Lovely tasty Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2013 via mobile

Ordered the Cobblestone breakfast which gave us the feeling and taste that we where having a wholesome farmers meal. They went the extra mile, eg the tomatoes where roasted with a touch of herbs, the beans had been prepared with finely diced onions, and the boerewors was good not fatty. Homemade toasted pot bread accompanied the meal with honey on the side. We left feeling satisfied that this was a delicious, non greasy (which happens so often), breakfast, and we will definitely be going back.

“An enjoyable friendly atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2012

Great place to escape... a number of original items on their menu and daily they bake a variety of fresh breads from stoneground flour as well as other baked goodies including a good selection of gluten-free breads.

Their pizzas are excellent and I loved the smoked chicken pita! Good friendly service!
