We were welcomed by the owner of the pancake house with an Ipad of wonderfull pictures of the pancakes. We were wondering if the pancakes on our plates would be equally as fine. And they were! Very nice and original pancakes, one with lamb and one with cream cheese and spinach. Luckaly the pancakes are served in half portions because the full portions are quite big.

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.
