Popped in along the way for cake and coffee. We were delayed at the door as a couple with a baby in a pram were refused entry. They have a no under 10 rule on weekends. Service was good, food was good. Will be back

Three of us arrived for lunch and seated ourselves...no problem. The staff were friendly and fairly efficient. The food however is whole different story. This is also not my first visit to Karoo Cafe, where the food was dismal. With a previous visit, it took...More
