Beautiful atmosphere. Very generous portions. Out of this world roosterkoek ( a traditional bread ) baked on an open fire. Do not miss this place. It would be a travesty. Ps: best cheese cake and milk tart.More

A group of us decided to do a road trip, and stopped at Kobus for a late breakfast, with high expectations. The roosterkoek were awful, and my milk tart was inedible. Service awful. I guess people stop there because of the name
