Came on a Sunday and booked ahead, so yes it was crowded but was disappointed how unfriendly and stressed out the staff were- food took more than an hour to arrive, and it was decent but the bad service was not worth the trip.

The last time we were in Franschhoek we wanted to have breakfast at this cafe only to find that they were closed for a function. We were luckily this weekend to find them open for lunch. The cafe is situated out of town on a farm. The setting is spectacular and the food is fantastic. We were impressed that they even catered for children so our 3 year old enjoyed a great pasta. The menus is small, but there is something for all tastes. There is also a great selection of wines for the region. The service was quick and efficient, and the meal was value for money. Will definitely be going back very soon

One of our favorite places for Sunday lunch and Farthers day no exception. Lovely fish cakes and pork belly with some really great wine. Who needs more.

The brief : 'A country lunch for 25 family & close friends who couldn't get to the wedding in Australia'.

Cafe BonBon stunned us all with elegant simplicity, from the welcome drinks laid out in Veruschka's Bar, to the 2 long tables down the main room, warmed by the fireplace at one end. Individually-printed menus offered a good selection, service was unobtrusive but attentive, and the beautifully-cooked & -presented dishes delighted everyone. Behind the scenes, I found management caring & eager to make our event really special, both in the negotiation stage as well as on the day. Well after 4pm, guests were still chatting out on the patio, reluctant to leave this glorious setting ! Well done & thank you, Cafe BonBon - it was perfect !
