We visited last year this time and had a stunning brunch and vowed to return for another visit to stay over this time and explore Willowmore. Sophie's Choice is owner managed and it was great to be met by the owner and once again served...More

On a recent motor cycle trip, we found Sophie's Choice in Willowmore. To say that they served the best Cheesecake I have ever tasted, is an understatement! The ambience of the restaurant is very arty & we thoroughly enjoyed our mid-afternoon break.

Stopped here several times to break the journey and relax with a good cup of coffee. Selective menu and on this occasion ordered a chicken and mushroom pie + salad. Delicious and more filling than pastry. Excellent also for cakes.

We called in on the way up the N9 from Plett to Graaf-Reinet. A few restaurants in town and this looked quite quirky. Part of the premises are a sort of grubby antique shop, the restaurant part was quite dark and clientele looked to be...More

Friends had insisted that we stop off at Sophie's Choice in Willowmore. It is an interesting place - unfortunately the people watching street side veranda was full so we ventured in & found a delightfully quirky courtyard to relax in. The cakes - well, what...More

One would never think to stop at a little town in the middle of the Karoo and find an amazing spot like Sophie's Choice. I have been hearing about Sophie's Choice from my cycling team who cycles 1800kms from Johannesburg to Cape Town. The most...More
