We have been coming to Fynbos for many years, but today the service was really bad. Cold tea, wrong drinks, cake comes after two cups of tea have been drank, slow overall. Can unfortunately not recommend anymore.

Lovely restaurant, good variety on menu, good for lunch, brunch or n between. Gifts can be bought and there is a variety of goods to purchase. Service is sometimes slow, don't be in a hurry. Worth a visit

An excellent coffee shop with good wholesome food. Very clean with friendly well trained staff. The mince on toast for breakfast, the apple crumble for dessert, the mutton curry/bobotie for lunch- try them all! Can't wait to go back again and again!
