Popular artisan eatery SCHOON has relaunched in Somerset West, with a return to its core values and first loyal customers. The move comes after a strategic restructuring by husband and wife team Fritz and Chanelle Schoon, who recently closed doors at their central Stellenbosch address, after seven successful years of serving an expanding range of real food products.
Hard boiled scotched egg.. Ice cold! Really? Besides that nice place.
This place has a seriously stinky attitude to service. Visited as a family (only two of us had been before) and the waiter couldn't wait to rush through our orders even though none of us had a chance to read the menu (no doubt the rain outside and the long queue contributed to his demeanour). In the bathroom I was greeted by a very unpleasant smell and a waitress who looked me up and down while I washed my hands. At one point during our meal a waitress swooped past and leaned over us to pull a cup of sugar/sweeteners off the middle of our table, without saying a word. The best part was when we paid our bill, dawdled for 2 minutes and were asked to leave by a waitress (apparently on behalf of the manager). He/she obviously didn't have the guts to ask us personally. Will never return. Pity because the coffee was nice. The owner needs to go back to Ile de Pain in Knysna to remember what service is about.
