Nice find, this busy little Cafe. Lovely garden setting with picnic tables outside and more tables inside and on the deck. Great service and enjoyable food.

We have gone to The Grape Escape for several years in a row and it has never disappointed. The menu is extensive and I would have been very happy with most of it. Excellent cakes/slices/gateaux/flans for dessert. You can sit inside, on a verandah or at tables outside either under trees or not. Children can roam around and the outside... More

Lovely spot for a light lunch maybe but the service is sub standard. The place needs a good scrub and freshen up . No water offered when seated and the girls outback prepping food are also running in and out to tables.. their black clothing looks grubby most times and they look unkempt due to the kitchen work they are...

We arrived to the Grape Escape and it is set up in a beautiful setting, just off of the main bike route and vineyards. The grounds are stunning, ornaments and flowers and lots of indoor and outdoor options. The food menu was good, not overly extensive but a reasonable variety of foods. We did however struggle when we asked a... More

Lovely place to stop for coffee. Had a Black Forrest Gateaux that was good. Nice seething both inside and out. What out for falling apples when sitting under the trees.

Located outside of town but worth finding and remember a reservation if a busy period as limited seating inside. The menu is very varied and offers plenty of different types of food a great children's menu also. If the weather is good plenty of seating outside, coffee and cake selection is also excellent.

We stopped at grape escape for coffee and let the kids running around. Our two and four year olds loved it. Had a good area to run, play ground and also some bunnies to look at. The coffee was lovely and cake was amazing. We also enjoyed visiting the cheese shop next door. Sooo yummy.
