Looking for a new Sunday breakfast spot, we came across Gisters. Their breakfast menu had a large range and caters for all including kiddies menu. Great service & food.

At Gisters you can taste real local dishes. I have never tasted a better "afval potjie" as the one at Gisters. Also the snoeksoup (Weskus sop?) is delicious!
