Love the intimate atmosphere in the little square. Friendly staff and breakfast was delicious. One of our favourite breakfast restaurants as one of the best bookstores and gift shop is around the corner. Perfect for long catch-up conversations with good friends!!

This is my favorite place to enjoy breakfast in Plett. They have tables in the courtyard under some trees and its the perfect setting for a relaxed and tasty meal. As with all good places in Plett, it gets very crowded in the Peak season...More

Lovely quiet courtyard off the main road in Plett. The food we had was great (avocado/salmon sourdough) + (chicken liver/bacon with toast) and the tea was excellent. Best bit was getting a loaf of sourdough and rye for the Garden Route!
