The family stopped here for a quick snack. Coffee was excellent as were the french fries. Service was good and prices very reasonable. Menu is not very large. Portions are huge - prepare to share.

Cafe Brule provides a semi-enclosed street side European cafe setting with in-house bakery, light meals and coffee shop. Situated in the centre of the town, next to the old sandstone masterpiece of the Oudtshoorn Museum, the eatery has won a loyal following for its all-day fix of excellent coffee, food and internet.

Freshly baked artisan breads daily with a variety of local produce on sale, ranging from locally produced olive oil, jams and wine. Aldo on offer are scrumptious lunches either on a set menu or from our blackboard!
