Lemon meringue tart - Delicious , an absolute must on your way to Kruger park. My son is 7 and he fell hopelessly in love the " Millies " and the trout. What a beautiful peace full stop on the way.

Nice to sit under the trees and watching people come and go, with a pie and coffee to fill the empty spot in my stomach.

On the way to anywhere in the East of SA, a detour to Milly's just sets the tone for a great vacation. MAke sure you indulge in anything "troutish" - they are the experts.
