We had breakfast at this stunning coffee shop that was beautifully presented. The food is of the highest standard and the decor must be the talk of the Karoo. Do not pass this town but stop at this quaint place.

Great breakfast, best service. The best cup of coffee I had in a long time. If you drive through Willowmore, stopping at Sophies Choice is a must.

Going back in time reminiscing everything in sight. The Ladies running the restaurant... More

The Karoo hides some gems. This is one of them. In the main street you will find this restaurant. We were early, so we had breakfast. The food was good, excellent value and tasty. The homemade bread was special. The cutlery and cups take you back to another era. The decor is something to experience yourself. Willowmore do have a... More

They have one of the most interesting interior (you'll feel like thirty years back) and exterior in the Cape! Coupled with very good (cake and their salads) food and friendly staff it is a must in Willowmore! Not to be missed! Look at their courtyard! Sit on the stoep and watch the traffic in the Main Road!
