Our Story 

Situated at the entrance to the historic town of Franschhoek and recently taken over by Chef Nico Vorster and his fiancé Kelly, we are a down-to-earth eatery that focuses on quality before quantity, using only fresh ingredients sourced from local suppliers.  Be it freshly caught line fish, crunchy Vegan salads or lunchtime burgers, you can be sure that we know exactly where everything comes from.  

During the day you can spoil yourself at The Deli with delicious breakfasts and light lunches and in the evening at The Bistro.

Because our passion is sourcing from garden to table, our evening Bistro menu changes on a monthly basis: there will always be new seasonal dishes to delight alongside the perennial favourites.

Our Deli shop is open during operating hours where we stock prize winning Olive Oils, artisanal breads, local homemade jams and chutneys, gourmet heat ‘n eat meals and a selection of delicious cakes.  Or you can simply pick up a coffee-to-go and a croissant.

We want you to feel as you sit under one of our umbrellas, “Aah I’m home and I feel good!”.
