Looking for an amazing eggs Benedict then look no further. Let me describe this delicious meal. Three crispy freshly baked slices of ciabatta, topped with perfectly cooked soft poached eggs (you can choose how you want your eggs poached), gorgeous bacon topped with a lekker hollandaise sauce. Their coffee was also really good. My partner had the chicken burger. Apparently... More

The Eggs Benedict were a hit and some of the best sampled. I was informed that our party would be back for the Benedict because it was perfect - to the hollandaise and bread. I had the chicken burger which was tasty but for some reason I expected chips and not crisps. The coffees were good too. Only complaint is... More

WE had late lunch and we enjoyed a lot the food. The terrace outdoors in very good for a sunny day. Very well located in the middle of Franschoek. The cheese platter was much more than expected as they served it with some home made pates that are delicious!

This is a popular place and fills up quickly. The food and hot drinks are a great way to start your day. Fresh baking bread smells wafts through as you sit and relax while eating.

This is a great place to chill out for an afternoon tea, coffee or drink. They offer really awesome cakes (the bar one cake is to due for) and other small meals. I'd definitely visit here again.

This is a very popular place from early in the morning till late afternoon. The breakfasts are beautiful and so are the freshly baked breads. The soup in winter a real winner. Well done, I keep coming back....

All the food looked excellent and our large lunch table raved about it. The blankets were a great touch for the cold Franschhoek winter months

When going through Franschhoek, we always pop in at our favourite, tucked away spot for great cappuccino's and cake! Staff are friendly and an efficient barista. Well worth for sit down or take away!

We returned for another Sunday morning quick-ish breakfast. The shop gets pretty busy, so never really a quick breakfast. When we sat down, we wondered why we came back, perhaps because it felt like a safe choice. This in a town where you will struggle to find a bad meal. Anyhooo... the service and food was average, the coffee was... More
