This is our favourite 'go to' place to have a bite to eat when passing on our travels. The service is excellent, and with a smile. Although the restaurant was extremely busy, we were seated and served immediately, and our meal arrived within 15 min.

You do not have to always go to the expensive, fancy restaurants as I went to Wimpy to have a hamburger and it was great. Price was good and the food was delicious. Can recommend them for a quick bite. The service was good and the food good.

My son is in Olyfkrans College in Swellendam. The town is far behind a modern city but visiting the wimpy is always a familiar experience. They even had free wifi in a town that barely has 3G. Friendly staff too
