We read about Stormsvlei on tripadvisor and thought it was worth a try. When we arrived outside at 845 on Sunday morning (opening @ 9) we were a bit dubious. But were we pleasantly surprised once the doors opened and we were lead to the beautiful garden at the back. How tranquil! The breakfast was truly delicious! Fresh bread, farm butter homemade preserves! Great cuppacino! A definite must if you're in the area!

This farm stall and restaurant are a true little gem- we happened upon it quite by accident and will be forever grateful that we chose to have our lunch there! Beautiful garden , lovely home-made food cooked with great care and a divine chocolate cheesecake - just beautiful. Our traditional stop at the Wimpy at Riviersonderend has just been cancelled forever!!!! Do yourself a biiiig favour - have a meal there and chat to friendly Jeanne - you will keep going back!

Don't be put off by the dismal, dark wood paneling and ghastly chandeliers of this restaurant/ bars' interior, the snowy white linen tablecloths and napkins show that this is no run of the mill wayside stop. A short blackboard menu has most of the basics. A well griddled beef rump without a hint of glutonous basting served with once fried skin on chips were surprisingly tasty. Excellent battered fish and chips the same. Beautiful laid out and manicured gardens past the terrace at the rear. 200 meters off the N2 on the Stormsvlei turn off, by far the best wayside stop we've encountered between Knysna and Capetown to date.

Excellence in food and service. My second stop for breakfast at Stormsvlei Artisan Jams and preserves with farm style butter. Homemade bread. Perfectly cooked. The best breakfast I can remember.Thanks

We had heard about the great food and service provided by Jeanne and Steven well before we turned off the N2 on our way to Swellendam and made sure we arrived well before closing time. Literally just a few hundred metres off the N2, Stormsvlei Farm Stall and Restaurant is an oasis of calm, and an ideal spot in the sun for brunch, lunch or afternoon tea. We headed out the back to enjoy the garden and ordered an Overberg Ale to accompany the Springbok Burger (not always on the menu but if you see it then you have to order it!) which was cooked just perfectly. The hand cut chips and the red onion marmalade (also for sale in the Farm Stall) were nice touches. Not wanting to leave, we ordered dessert and coffees, which was roasted locally in Robertson and delivered at just the right temperature and texture. After lingering as long as we could we took a look through the Farm Stall and purchased a lovely bottle of wine and some of the Steven's Kitchen Red Onion Marmalade for a gift before heading towards Swellendam along the scenic route (recommended by Jeanne). We're glad we took her advice as the wildlife nearby was abundant and made the slight detour worthwhile. Next time we're in the area we will be stopping by and have already recommended friends of ours visit when they travel to South Africa later in the year.
