My wife and visited this restaurant on our last trip to Franschhoek and were delighted with our lunch. The meal is served in a very relaxed atmosphere and the friendly waitrons are efficient and helpful.

Stopped here for lunch - great salmon sandwich and an excellent glass of wine - perfect for people watching. Burger - great range of options on the burger front - went down very well with our teenager. Friendly service in a great central location.

Stopped here for morning frappe before going out n the wine team. Well placed very near to the tram booking office. Frappe was excellent but the service was rather slow.

This is a little gem,which offers quite a varied menu at reasonable prices,to sit outside with a good coffee and smoothie ( wife's favourite) and just watch the comings and goings is quite relaxing. The eggs benedict are very nice and quite filling so give it a try, also go inside to look at what's on offer,a deli with lots... More

We ate here for lunch. The salmon trout sounded delicious, as did the chili lime noodles and salmon - which we duly ordered. Very disappointing. We didn't think the trout was fresh and the noodles were rather stuck together and very stodgy. Pleasant staff but better to stick to burgers and fries here I think.

A very hot day to walk around and a lot of the restaurants in Franschhoek close at 15:00 after serving lunch. We didn't want anything too big as we were dining out in the evening. We had two spring rolls with a dipping sauce. Nice portion and the best I have had for a long time very reasonably priced too.

Just off the high street in Franschhoek this is a great cafe to head for. Loads of choice from very good coffee to bottled beers and soft drinks. Also noticed some good looking food being served. Great place to sit and watch the world go by.
