Cafe brulé serves fresh food that is very well prepared. The buffet on a Sunday is simple yet each item on the plate is cooked to make it no ordinary meal.

When it comes to cafes in different cities, I find a really good one and remain a loyal customer. Why go some place else? I'm a creature of habit! For some years now, whenever I have visited with family in Oudtshoorn, this is my favourite place to go. Since the first time back in the nineties (or was it the... More

Breakfast at the Cafe Brule is a delightful experience. I have never been disappointed on the quality of food served there. They have excellent pies, scones, cakes etc. You have a choice of inside or on there delightful terrace.

We were fortunate to grab some lunch. Have always only been there for breakfast, which was very nice. We had ostrich salad and chicken pie.. the most tasty by far.. salad was just balanced right and the chicken pie had the most chicken in it that I have every seen.. great experience and super staff.

The service is always friendly and quick, the food always excellent. The coffee is also the best in town! If I have time I always pop in for lunch or coffee when in O'hoorn for shopping!

This is a famous landmark in Oudtshoorn and almost everyone stops at the Queens hotel to visit Cafe Brulee. They did not have any pies left at 3pm, so we ordered cake and coffee, I had the desperate housewives sandwich. Not bad and the coffee was ok too.

We ate two times here, once for a coffee break and once for a quick lunch. Quality of the lunch food (we had ostrich salads) as excellent, good value for money. The cakes were okay, but nothing special. At both occasions, staff was friendly, but slow in serving food and preparing the bill. Location is nice, you can sit on... More
