“Steer clear of the 'light lunches', and rather give the cakes a try.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012 via mobile

We stopped for a 'light lunch'. The Chicken Schnitzel and Spinach and feta options were a disaster. In essence the meals were frozen meals popped into the oven or skillet when we ordered. I have never had such a tough chicken schnitzel before. Thankfully the salad was fresh and diverse. IF you have no other option, stick to the cakes and hot drinks instead, and try some of the other resturants for lunch.

“Celebrating pinkness”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

Oppi Stoep is a good stop for a light lunch and will particularly appeal to those who share the delightful owner's love of all things pink. The salads we had - chicken and Greek - were absolutely fine although slightly let down by the supermarket bread and dressings out of a bottle that accompanied them. Lunch ended on another pink note with the bill in a pink box.

“Delicious cafe stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

We stopped here for a delicious lunch on our way to Stellenbosch. We could sit outside and take in the lovely atmosphere of the town. Very highly recommended food and ambiance.

“Best cake in Swellendam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012 via mobile

If it's baked goods you want, look no further!
The waffles are too crisp & thin so I ordered the lemon meringue thereafter. It was perfect and so was my husbands' apple pie.
They do amazing & fresh light lunches too. A definite worth while stop with its refreshing outdoor seating area.

“Wafalicious waffels!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2011

Our family had wonderful waffels- beautifully presented and a chocolate muffin- very tasty under the trees. Quiet setting. Good service.
