“Cute cafe, great cappuccinos!”
We stopped by this little gem for breakfast and it was such a treat to drink cappuccinos and eat delicious homemade bread overlooking a lovely field of sunflowers. The service and the decor are both excellent. Definitely recommended.
“A lovely surprise in the middle of nowhere!”
We were staying up the road and craving some good sweet treats and on passing the sign for the Outspan on the main road through the Drakensberg decided to give it a go. The place was lovely and quaint, the staff very welcoming and the food delicious! We had a milkshake each, a lemon meringue and a muffin and then tried out the biltong in the separate house. The chilli biltong is still the best we have tried in the country and we just wish we had bought more! All for a great price as well.

The signs leading to the cafe are quirky and make you want to pop in. The chocolate muffins were scrumptious with good coffee. A great place to get off the road and out the car for a break.
**********“Excellent coffee stop”
We stopped here for morning coffee and muffins on our way into Bergville on a slightly cool drizzly morning. My first reaction was "What a quaint little place". The setting and the views are very picturesque. We sat outside and had birds hopping around on the ground.
Wow what a pleasant surprise! Great friendly and attentive service and really excellent coffee. Both the black forest muffin as well as the carrot cake muffin were also amazing. I'm not really a muffin fan but these were probably some of the best muffins we've ever had. I don't know what the baker puts into them, and whatever it is, don't change it as they were yummy.
“COFFEE GEM HIDDEN IN THE BERG"
January 17, 2017
Wow, we drove right past this place and decided to turn around and give them a try. Were we glad as this small gem in the berg offers the nicest coffee in the area and home baked pastries etc to die for...
The owner and barista know what they are doing and have a passion for it. This comes through in the coffee and food. The ambiance is good and very tastfully and colourfully decorated.
DO NOT PASS THIS SHOP WITHOUT STOPPING - You will be missing a true gem!
Depresso Life Without Coffee - is an awesome coffee shop found on the premises of the Cameeldraai Farm situated about 20km (17 minutes) from Bergville when travelling west on the R74 towards the Sterkfontein Dam. The same premises is also home to the The Outspan biltong shop.
What an awesome find! Excellent coffee (and other refreshments) together with some mighty fine accompaniments.
The buildings and surrounding garden area is very neat and clean. Approaching coffee shop one can smell the aroma of freshly made coffee which, invites you in for a real treat.
Well worth a visit every time one travels this route.

I ... LOVED ... this place. It was the perfect break for us after a long day of hiking. The Biltong shop and the coffee shop, I guess, are owned by two different people. I think they work together cuz the wifi is in the biltong shop, but accessible to the area. I found the wifi to be hit or miss, but when it hit, it was the fastest wifi I had in my month in South Africa. Americano's were FANTASTIC and the barista (I think his name is Lucky,) was amazing. Very friendly and accommodating. I'm not reviewing any other restaurants or coffee shops in South Africa, but this one deserves it.
