I had very tasty salmon pancake lunch during my visit to Franschhoek. The owner and staff were very friendly and chatting, food was fantastic and the price was very reasonable. Highly recommended this eating-place.

The best place to be! On arrival you're greeted with warm smiles from both Gideon and the super friendly wait staff. The soufle-type pancakes are superb, with filling that both tantalise and enrich the soul. I love coming back whenever we are in Franschhoek and I can gladly recommend "Gideon's The Famous Franschhoek Pancake House"!!

We went here because we got a free coffee voucher with our tickets for the wine team tour the day before. But it turned out to be a quaint cozy spot for a coffee and pancake on a rainy day in town. Yummy crepes - options for both savoury and sweet. Also came in full and half portions. Coffee was great and so was the atmosphere. The prices were very good too.

We had sweet and savoury pancakes which were beautifully made and served with all required extras.
We have no hesitation in recommending this establishment for its quality of food and service.
A must place to visit in Franschoek.

My wife and I visited here several times during our stay in Franschhoek and was never disappointed with either the quality of the food and drinks or the service provided. Always well greeted by staff who I think got to know us quite well. The banana flambé a must try, as is the iced coffee drink. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner Gideon, who by admission is a self professed obnoxious restauranteur, however we found him friendly, and prepared to spend time telling us about the area, his business as well as recommending other restaurants in the area to try, which did not disappoint.
