Hillcrest Berry Orchards

Situated just outside Stellenbosch lies this berry orchard gem - especially so for the magnificent views, contemplative environment and delicious gluten-free deserts.

Their crustless cheesecake is a must, topped with your fresh berry coulis of choice (I love the cherry topping) and served with cream or ice-cream (the cream is decadently thick). I dream of this cheesecake - if I close my eyes I can imagine the melt-in-your-mouth smoothness and accompanying berry tartness to balance the sweetness.

If you're craving something chocolatey, their gluten-free torte is rich, heavy and comforting.

Their menu is well-stocked for a variety of options, service is good (and friendly) if you go when it isn't packed and the shop is full of tempting treats such as jams, honeys, frozen berries, etc.

I highly recommend this for an outing the next time you are in Cape Town. It's lovely.
