“Best coffee in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

We usually sit in the garden and enjoy a light meal and great coffee. The prices are not too bad either. the kids can have a look at the farm animals close by and there is a small play area.

“Awesome pies”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

We had a lunch stop over and we struck gold. The pies are definitely worth the wait. Homemade and were wonderful. My daughters' toasted sandwiches were also good. Homemade bread with lots of filling. The service was good in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. At about 150km from Cape Town I would even consider a day trip to taste their pies once again.But as the restaurant is well know for their pies, they did tell us they do struggle to keep up with the demand especially during the December period, so perhaps a call to the restaurant would be a good idea to avoid disappointment.

“Delightful Rustic Ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

We enjoyed Fathers Day Brunch at this quaint restaurant in a lovely setting. The outside section was under large trees but as it was a little cool, we sat inside where a lovely log fire was burning. The breakfast that we ordered was very tasty and nicely presented and the ambience was delightful spoiled only by 3 somewhat noisy parrots. I guess on a nice day their cages would have been outside but they werent particularly clean and very close to the tables. A wee bit offputting. All in all though, we enjoyed our visit.

“An all-time favourite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

Oude Kombuis just has everything. A rustic-romantic feel, a nice fireplace in winter, a lovely tea garden in summer, good food and good service. Oh, and fantastic coffee. I could go there every day.
