You need to be aware that this historic old bulding is oly open Saturdays and Sundays. That's it. Not even public holidays. Simple, clean good fare. Short menu, more café style it is a welcome pit stop for a cold drink, snack or coffee.

We we're utterly surprised with this awesome visit! Where will you get 4 cups of filter coffee for only R10.00! Food portions are big enough to share, VERY tasty, well presented and exceptional service. A MUST see!

Mike and Peter created an amazing little hideaway to have brunch at in the middle of nowhere. Such a charming setting with warm and friendly hosts. Not to be missed if you pass through Calitzdorp over a weekend.

Situated outside of Calitzdorp, but well worth the drive. A great selection of art, paired with a tranquil setting of beautiful natural surroundings and traditional karoo hospitality. Everything on the menu is freshly prepared, simple and unpretentious, yet absolutely delicious. The quiches are divine! Also,...More
