Cute, so cute, but also generous. They've taken an old shed, spruced it up, slapped some slick paint onto the existing shell and added a little timber mezzanine, perfect for a intimate dates (or just people watching). So it offers a variety of different seating options, from open to cost to outside The coffee is really great, no wonder it's the local coffee run destination for cyclists. If you're into gin check out the variety, wow, food is very lekker, my fruit salad was huuuge and yummy. Staff is very friendly and hospitable. Apparently they even cater... Big thumbs up team FGS.

The breakfast and service was amazing and very reasonably priced. They can do with a bit of an outside area with small playground for kids in summer, and have a few more heaters on in winter as it was a little bit cold inside. But we will definitely be back and excited to see this little gem gem grow from strength to strength More...

It is just obvious when people’s heart and soul are invested in their business! Only one thing is more important to this restaurant than the wonderful food they serve and that is their patrons! We will definitely be back!
They even sent our left-overs home with us in their own crockery (not a take-away container)!

Has to be my favourite place for Chai Latte and of course all the other delicious fare served by their new young and innovative chef, Ali. I popped in on a Saturday morning and found it buzzing and busy while pottery classes were going on next door. I found a quiet couch and ordered my latte which arrived in true Ali style.. A huge biscuit not the tiny ones found at other places, accompanied my glass of hot steaming latte. In the past I had the most delicious smashed avo on toast and the pancakes... Well when I'm not on diet... I love them. More...

Our lunch club had brunch here yesterday. My Mom and I enjoyed the coffee and we had the Eggs Benedict with ham. It was served on a rosti and was really nice. The hollandaise sauce was delicious. My only gripe was that the dish needed something crunchie. Others had the chicken livers, gourmet mushrooms and the big v. All was beautifully presented, as far as I know everybody enjoyed their meals. After my meal I wanted a juice and had the zesty homemade lemonade which was very good. Appearance wise the garden could do with some attention but inside is lovely. More...

My daughter had a "Breakfast Buffet" High-Tea Style at For Goodness Sake on Sunday 18th February..... The food was displayed so so so beautifully. ... It looked like something out of a foodie magazine.... Each morsel was absolutely divine!!!!! The staff were extremely efficient and professional! I would definitely recommend anyone having a special event to have this at For Goodness Sake! Highly highly recommended!!! There is a really good vibe and we will be returning to try out the rest of their menu! More...

It is truly an amazing place to chill and unwind. Delicious food, delightful delicious drinks with ginger, desserts to die for. For the chocoholics- you gotta try the chocolate cake and ice cream combo. If you are looking for something different, this is the place! Even my three year old enjoyed every ounce. Thanks Helen and the kitchen team for an amazing experience. More...

In the quiet landscape of muldersdrift this little gem of a restaurant is located. This restaurant is like non other with FRESHLY prepared meal (although it might take a little longer) the food is definitely worth the wait. The breakfast livers with rosemary toast is a personal favorite with extremely soft liver, beautifully poached eggs and crisp rye rosemary toast. What's not to love? As a food enthusiast and chef I have found that some major restaurants have lost the passion of waht cooking is really about. This restaurant combines healthy and fresh ingredients with amazing flavor and flare! I have never really been a fan of offal such as chicken livers but this restaurant has me smitten with every dish that they create. Thank you for an amazing breakfast and good service, will definitely come again! More...

What a little gem, hidden away in the middle of nowhere. Breakfast was delicious, but the portions a little small. Over the counter orders, staff very friendly and helpful. Best coffee I had in a long time. Will definitely be back to try the lunch More...

I give my hat off towards For Goodness Sake as even though my first experience was not the best of one's for the owner to call and find out what was wrong has meant allot towards me and shows that this business is serious for customer care so thank you very much and am looking forward to coming to you more often

Finally made our way to this little gem for breakfast and it was worth the wait. They have amazing condensed milk plunger coffee that I will definitely order again. And breakfast was very well prepared and delicious. Service was a bit slow, but as this was a lazy breakfast date we appreciated the time to catch up. And the owner had a little chat to confirm we enjoyed ourselves, and also mentions the staffing issues they had that day, so we were happy with what we got :) Ambiance is chilled and layed back with amazing food and good seating.

New discovery on the outskirts of Muldersdrift. Restaurant has a nice settling in the building with ample secure parking. Open patio and large indoor seating area . Decent selection of breakfast and lunch dishes. Quality is good, presentation can be improved. Service is good. Double ceiling height causes a bit of atmosphere to be lost. I presume difficult to keep warm in winter, therefore seating by the fireplace is a winner. Definitely a place to try. More...

Was really excited to visit. Had a rocky start - don't have Decaf coffee and the waiter seems a little flustered. But, it is a beautiful space and we had a great time after that. The food is great and the prices makes it absolute value for money. Will visit again for other meals. More...
