The Birdcage is a beautiful little shop nestled in the De Wet Square in Stellenbosch. Join them for scrumptuous breakfasts, light lunches and a wide selection of cakes, cupcakes, bars, slices and homemade sweets. They also offer a small but exclusive selection of beautiful homeware and gift items as well as a gift wrapping service.
Their venue is small, therefore they cater for groups of 8 to 10 people maximum. Booking is essential for tables of 6 or more guests. They also specialise in baking delicious wedding cakes. Email them with your details and they will schedule a consultation and decadent cake tasting with you.
Owners Adele, Beate and Shanel are hands on and chances are at least one of them will always be there to say hello.
Came to sit down alone for a light lunch in the streets of beautiful stellenbosch on the veranda of the birdcage
A sweet little place at first glance
The menu abrubt but intriguing looked perfect with light salads breads pitas and wraps alike
The pita with hummus roast tomato and chicken came to my table and i took the first bite of what was a great disappointment.
Soggy underseasoned hummus with no hint of lemon or salt or pepper just watery bland chick peas grinded to a wet pulp which also made the pita bread soggy.
The so called roast tomatoes had no sugar or salt or garlic or olive oil or even a raost of any kind.
The brilliant hot chocolate with a shot espresso however saved the day.
