Her Majesteas Salon, Regal charm with a twist of humour



Whilst inarguably genteel and refined, Her Majesteas Salon in Heidelberg presents gracious hospitality, with a tongue firmly placed in the cheek.  I like that.  HMS has the feel of a smile not a stiff upper lip.  Royally wallpapered walls host Tretchikoff prints and wire chandeliers are adorned with tea cups , champagne corks and other bits and bobs.  Tannie Evita Bezuidenhout would be right at home here.

We haven’t been out for breakfast in years, I was delighted with Cliff’s choice in taking us to HMS for this treat.  The buffet breakfast (R55 for a small plate and R75 for large) went down well as did my cappuccino.  Being allergic to egg, Fjord ordered a toasted cheese and bacon.  Setting and ambiance always take a dining experience up a notch.  HMS is not just about food, it’s about a well-rounded experience.


We are already planning to return for coffee and cake, some afternoon in the not too distant future.

Note the following extract from the menu “N.B. Dear parents, we LOVE well-behaved kids who are raised old school style. Those are most welcome here ;). However, naughty, noisy kids who are left to run riot will really be much happier at Spur or elsewhere. Also note, our doggies are previously disadvantaged and not kiddy friendly. They wont maim, but may nip when approached”

  1. Wow Ursula What a beautiful place….once again a lovely blog well done……

  2. Looks like a charming place. Love the name and definitely the decor. Will keep it in mind when I’m in that neck of the woods. Thanks for sharing.

  3. The place looks lovely and I love the “well behaved children” welcome. I have become very intolerant when it comes to small children who are not disciplined and their parents think they are cute when they run wild and wreck everything
