Lovely stop on Route 62. The veranda is cool on a hot Karoo day. The fresh roosterkoek with biltong and fig is recommended as well as the pancakes. Kids loved watching the chickens.Wines,preserves and crafts also on sale.

Met the owners before and very friendly etc. Sadly this time I was disappointed :( Staff friendly and helpful. Ordered roosterkoek, coffee and hot chocolate. After 20 min I stood up to ask where our drinks where. We sat inside...

Stopped for a quick bite to eat. The kudu steak pies are reasonably priced and packed with gamey meat - very tasty. Interesting bric-a-brac in the shop too. Prices seem reasonable in comparison to other local stops

We enjoyed the delicious platter for two washed down with their homemade lemonade on the lovely cool verandah in the Karoo heat - Bella Karoo is a little oasis and worth a stop. There's also a small shop.
