Nice setting on the Main Street for the KKNK. I was served an extremely dry ostrich pie, which looked like it was a couple of days old. The waitress did apologize for the incident, I'm just appalled that such a pathetic-looking meal could have left the kitchen in the first place. Otherwise, a pretty mediocre experience :(

A lovely Local spot to meet for coffee. Service is always slow...Ordered toasted cheese, bacon and tomato. Arrived without the tomato, sent back and returned within a minute with badly butchered cold slices of tomato, not even trimming it! The cheese in all the years has sadly been yellow Gouda, tasteless and artificial! Try some genuine white cheese please!

We regularly visited Cafe Brûlée and were never disappointed. Lovely breakfasts with bread baked on site.. helpful and attentive staff and never rushed. Their prices are better than many less attractive venues.

Having visited Cafe Brul'e on most my visits to Oudtshoorn, it has never disappointed. Great brunch and lunch or simply a coffee, tea and cake venue. Salads are awesome averaging about R 60. The pies and salads are a favourite. Sit inside or on the terrace. I like the free lemon water and cucumber water on offer for free. Go... More

I was for many years a regular at Cafe Brule. After being away for 3 years I am on holiday in Oudtshoorn now and have visited this coffee shop a few times in the last 2 weeks. I am impressed that the menu is more or less the same and the quality of food on offer as good as it... More

It’s a lovely quiet place situate on the main rd in the same building as the Queens Hotel. Staff is excellent and I love their home made bread. It’s a place you can visit anytime an its in the centre of Oudtshoorn

We stopped off here for breakfast. Service was fast and friendly and the food was delicious. I highly recommend the croque brule sandwich (ham, cheese, mustard & spring onions). Yummy!
