We were attracted from the N2 by the quirky Sculptures that surround the Cafe. We were further drawn in by the beautifully set out Gardens , the unusual selection of garden Pots and the unique Cathedral gardens. The Cafe is rustic/basic but full of character. Service is warm, friendly and attentive. Menu is limited but the food was delicious. Not at all what we expected but well worth the detour.

The N2 on a Sunday at month end is somewhat similar to the movie Rollerball , stick your arm out the car window and you could lose it! Desperate for something to eat we stopped off at this roadside landmark just outside Albertina. The decor is a time stopped 60's wood chip farm yard and a welcoming open air seating area. All the food on the menu is home cooked so be prepared to wait for it , it's worth it. I had the cheese burger , classic recipe including the pickle and toothpick and probably the best I have had this millennium!! Everything including the bun is produced on-site. My wife had the Lasagne and salad served with a homemade roll and preserves ! It was also delicious and filling. The coffee was classic "Americano" style and strong enough to get you to the end of the journey. The staff are friendly and efficient and very knowledgeable about the area , this classic road house Oasis is highly recommended!

Do yourself a favor and stop at Tuinplaas next time you visit Albertinia. Ask for Jeff and let him take you through ROAR (Royal Ostrich Ancestral Republic) with tongue in the cheek commentary on current world affairs! The miniature car display which is around 8000 is also amazing!
