Their roast lamb with roast potatoes and vegetables and a glass of wine for R120 is excellent value. The lamb was tender and tasty and the roast potatoes some of the best ever, crisp and crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Strategic positioning! Perfect spot for a cup of coffee or breakfast before tackling the wine tram tour. We had coffees, a smoothie and a kale toasty thing that was awesome (and I don't normally even like kale in its raw state!) Everything was very good...More

Me and my wife shared the Nibble platter. Good variety of spreads, cheeses and cold meats. Best bread I have EVER tasted.

We had a lovely coffee frappé and "African Sunset" smoothie here in the middle of our morning stroll. The drinks and service were perfect, the shade was even better!

Visited before and pleased we went back. Food lovely and service friendly. Always busy. It opens at night sometimes but seems a bit hit and miss!!!

After a stroll through the village on a hot summers day we elected to stop here for a cold drink. We ordered coffee milkshakes and they certainly hit you spot. Outdoor seating means you can do some people watching whilst eating and drinking here.

This restaurant is open for lunch right in the centre of Franchhoek and they have the most amazing choice of pastries, cakes etc. They also serve specialist coffees and soft drinks. The service is also very good. A good place to have lunch.
