This is definitely thee best cheesecake on the midlands, not to mention natal and South Africa as a whole – utterly creamy with a beautiful fresh blueberry topping, not too sweet and not too rich. This bad boy will keep you coming back for more, with so much cream in it, it must get Tim Noakes’ approval (forget the sugar content). Their coffee is home roasted so clearly they take their coffee making quite seriously. This cuppa coffee gets our stamp of approval as it is wonderfully strong and smooth.
