I chose the apple pie because that's their specialty, but I would love to have sampled more sweet treats. Nice shady outdoor seating. A must if you're anywhere near Solitaire!

We visited solitaire on our trip from Sossusvlei to Swakopmund as many people do. We had read the book Solitaire written by a Dutchman in 2002 about the time he owned a part of this place. You have to read it. The place is quite nice with some places to stay and all the old memories. The Bakery lookes very... More

My partner and I stopped in en route from Walvis Bay to Sossusvlei for the obligatory apple pie. Yes, it's delicious! I questioned the lack of cream and felt like a proper w@nker- I mean, we are in the middle of the Namibian desert. But don't worry: there is a layer of creamy goodness inside the pie that makes it...

I did not have the world famous apple pie because I don't like apple pie but everyone I was with did and loved it. I purchased a sandwich along with some other baked goods; muffins and cheese biscuits. Delicious.

Food portions were huge. European type apple pie. Lovely large undercover outside area to eat. Watched the birds and ground squirrels. Large and clean bathroom.

Checked in there on the 21st of December round 11:30. What a disappointment... had 2 tyres to replace due to shocking roads in Namibia. Got to Solitaire to have world recommended apple strudel (not anything near a strudel or cake ... more like a terrible crumble). Bought a slice with horrendous chuncks of pink apples in it ... really terrible.... More

Well, after driving hours in the Namib, it is a surprise to find a good backery in the middle of nowhere. Solitaire is mythic, anyway!

A quick flight from Windhoek to Solitaire for a portion of Moose's Famous Apple pie and a cup of coffee is a great way to start a Saturday. If you ever pass through this 1 horse town, you have to stop at the bakery and enjoy a slice. It is part of Solitaire's history and the recipe has not changed... More

Hot , stuffy and expensive. The pieces we buy are not consistent in size ... the men get huge pieces, the women small ones ... funny?

Quaint little place in the middle of nowhere. It sort of looks like movie set. Its clean, and neat. Its got a fuel station, a bakery and little general dealer. The bakery is famous for its apple pie, which was pretty good. Give it a try.
