Super little coffee bar/ restaurant on the main road through Swellendam serving excellent coffee and with a very attractive choice of food.
Originally established as an "empowerment" project for locals the restaurant has a warm and friendly atmosphere. Only downside is that it does not open in the evening.
Well worth dropping by.

Great atmosphere and friendly staff - lovely to sit under the oak trees! The roosterkoek was delicious and the meringue to die for! Will definitely recommend to others and can't wait to go back.

The restaurant suggests some unique food, but overall it is nothing out of the ordinary. There is a playground next to the restaurant which is a nice add on when you travel with kids. Service like many other places, was slow...

Try the cakes here. They are great and the best thing is that you can have half portions, so we had, between the two of us, 4 half portions. It was like a feast! Thanks Helga
