Delicious lunch buffet, freshly prepared with seasonal food. Desserts are excellent too! Very friendly staff and nice atmosphere - especially if the weather allows you to sit outside! I eat at Taste Bud regularly and will continue to do so in the future.

One of our favourite spots whether it be for a coffee and cake break or a delicious lunch. Excellent cake selection and always something new to choose from. What a treat.

This restaurant is the best one ever i tried in South Africa! If you didnt come to this place, you havent come to Stellenbosch! Must go! Not expensive at all but extreme high quality of food! Especially the burger and buffet!

Lunch buffet is good (R18.5/100g) and this dish costs only R89. Good environment and friendly staff.

The place where locals go; well one of the places at least. The Harvest Table offers a lovely selection of traditional and healthy options to choose from. It is ready so this means a quick in and out - when you sit there or when...More

It is a wonderful setting - outside under the Oak trees - and inside more small tables and a long communal table that feels like sitting in a farm kitchen :) Setting alone is unfortunately not enough to get customers to go back! Outside table...More

The friendly interaction between staff and patrons (mainly students) indicate that everyone is very much at home here. There are interesting dishes, wraps, hamburgers and sandwiches on the menu, but the harvest table (daily at 12) is a real winner. Help yourself to some real...More
