DiningNIMROD: Craving some spicy hummus, shrimp dumplings or a chicken pesto baguette? Those choices are not what’s currently found on menus in local restaurants.
It’s been years since locals and visitors alike had a wide choice of where to go out for dinner. Restaurants like Albert’s Lodge, the Log Cabin Inn and Holiday Farm are now just memories.
“Every day someone has asked where they could go,” recalls Bert de Klerk, owner of the McKenzie River Inn resort in Nimrod. We could see there was a need and we decided to offer something at the highest level possible.
His answer, the Crescent Moon Cafe, is set to open to the public on July 21st.

A successful stockman, he had, over the previous 20 years, forged a reputation for himself as an honest, trustworthy man — and kind and generous to boot. He was especially effective at taking hotheaded young lads under his wing, helping them out of bad situations and inspiring them to turn their lives around.
