Delightful setting, delicious food.

The breakfast here was complimentary as we had booked in at African Shades. A short morning walk to be spoilt with excellent service and delicious food was the highlight of our stay.

We were so glad we stumblef upon this cosy little eatery. It oozes chic, unpretentiousness. The food brought comfort, the waiters did it all with gusto and the owner is obviously proud of what's on the menu

My plan upon visiting Swellendam was to go to another restaurant, but when we realized it had moved we decided to stop here. And very glad we did, for a late light lunch. As This was our first trip to South Africa, and we had not tried bobotie yet, we gave it a go here. Sooo delicious! We ate outside... More

Great food - this is the place to try Bobotie! Very relaxed pub-like atmosphere. If you're lucky the local alcoholic will turn up and swear at you in Afrikaans (from the other side of the hedge - apparently she's a regular!).

We stopped for breakfast while passing through Swellendam as this was one of few places open. We enjoyed sitting outside under the beautiful trees and found the service friendly and efficient, the food pleasant and well-priced and the cappuccinos good.

This little restaurant offers light meals, freshly cooked, so allow some minutes. We enjoyed the Lamb Shank Pie and the Beef Lasagne very much, which both cam after 15 minutes. Very friendly and attentive service.

I was in Swellendam for a 2 hour break between busses, actually regretting to not have a day to spend in this quaint historic little town and stopped at the cafe for lunch. The service was extremely friendly and actually arranged a ride to the bus-stop for me, the food was good and quickly served and I really enjoyed the... More

This delightful little cafe is situated on the main road in Swellendam where we decided to pull over and stretch our legs on the long drive from Hermanus to Knysna. This is a very convenient cafe. We almost stumbled upon it. We were able to park right outside, so could keep an eye on our car which had all our... More
