Bloemendal (Durbanville)

This Durbanville wine farm is an idyllic choice for a baby shower. They have a range of event spaces, making it almost too hard to choose! If you’re looking to book an intimate table or even the entire restaurant, Bon Amis is a perfect spot for both summer and winter.

There’s also a great play area if any guests bring along their kids. For more intimate gatherings, there’s the Rosé Garden, which is situated under a tent, or the Viewing Deck with its sweeping, sunny views. Smaller parties can be held in one of the picnic-style gazebos nestled in the small forest. The choice is yours!

Café Roux (Noordhoek)

They also offer a range of home-made cakes, which you can preorder for your party. The venue also has an in-house projector and sound system should you want to make any speeches for the parents-to-be.

The Lawns (Camps Bay)

The Lawns is a beautiful summer venue with sweeping sea views. It has become a favourite with locals and tourists for its large menu and ample seating, which can play host to multiple special occasions at once.

For your baby shower, you can choose between a lazy, sunny picnic with soft picnic-style seating, an intimate setting on one of the sun-dappled decks, one of the three lawn seating areas (with Lawn 3 catering to kiddies with a jumping castle), or the Oak Terrace with lounge-style seats and views of the 12 Apostles.

The menu is vast and can cater to many different tastes, so it’s best to get in touch with them should you want to arrange a set menu. If your party is 20 or more people, get in touch via

The Table at De Meye (Stellenbosch)

This is definitely one for the foodies – but be sure you book way in advance if you want a larger table. For an intimate, lazy outdoor party, this winelands spot is ideal.

The food is served family-style, which means whatever is on the menu that day (think Welsh rarebit with roast beetroot and 15-hour braised lamb) will be brought to the table on beautiful platters for guests to enjoy.

If you’re wanting to book the entire space, The Table at De Meye will happily offer private functions on their closed days (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday). Get in touch to enquire about different options.

Email or call 0726960530.

Take a trip to wine country and set up an intimate baby shower at Tokara’s deli. This relaxed wine farm eatery is beautiful in both summer and winter and they happily host baby showers when booked in advance (they can even bake a bespoke cake for the event).

There’s a gorgeous outdoor play area for any little ones attending. Their breakfast set menu costs R250 per person with MCC, or R220 with juice.

The menu includes a granola and seasonal fruit bowl followed by eggs  Benedict of your choice.
