Food
Laughter, it is said, is the best medicine for the soul. Afro-boer seems to have taken that saying to heart. From the quirky menu listings to the funny yet informative signs and notices all around, the owners have done an excellent job of infusing good-natured humour in everything about this establishment.

There’s a selection of baked and café goods available that’s excellent for breakfast or brunch – from soups (cauliflower, sweet potato and coconut, lamb shank) and salads (greens, roast duck breast, quinoa, smoked trout, leafy lamb, among others) to sandwiches and burgers. There are also well-crafted local dishes and a choice selection of tasty desserts.

The smoked chicken panini is designed to delightfully surprise your taste buds. The guava relish and rocket leaf mix is reminiscent of tropical tastes and delights, with a unique blend of sweetness, and remarkably enjoyable. The trimmed rib-eye on the bone is grilled to perfection. The Asian-style pork belly curry is another winner, with its zingy ginger and tamarind flavour. Presented with a surrounding stack of vegetables – including peas, baby corn and rocket – the blend of flavours and textures all make for a culinary delight.
Vegan and banting dishes are also available on the menu, as well as meals specifically designed for children.
There’s a selection of freshly made cakes on offer, with a different flavour as the cake of the day, every day. The chocolate cake is too decadent to pass up.

Drinks
As befits an establishment that only serves breakfasts and lunches, the alcohol options are limited. Nonetheless, there’s a fine but small selection of wines, bubbly and craft beers available. The gin and tonic is especially pleasing to the palate, with a nice blend of infusions and the refreshing zing of cucumber. A variety of teas and coffees is also available, as well as drinks for kids.

Service
The staff are very friendly and welcoming, in addition to being quite knowledgeable about the menu. The service borders on pampering.

Ambience
With a beautiful garden and well laid-out lawn as the main eating areas, this establishment is in love with summer, with décor to match. For days of inclement weather, or diners who want a cosier and intimate experience, there are well-designed and decorated indoor sitting areas to cater for that as well.

Best for…
This is the perfect restaurant for breakfast and lunch, be it alone, with a loved one, a group of friends, or with the entire family.

    My go to place. Love the Spaza shop, with friendly Thabo’s great coffee and of course the gorgeous roosters always coming to greet. A break away from the City
    Stunning garden, perfect for family and friends , and absolutely in love with their desserts! Would definitely recommend the White chocolate cheesecake .

    Afro-boer is in my neighborhood and is the best spot for mothers. It has been the best spot during the stressful lockdown... Their food is out of this world... It is my go to spot all the time. I love Afro-boer!
    We decided on Afro-Boer, for the desserts & cakes on display. We were delighted with the selection of delicious cakes on offer. The service was on par with the food. Thank you so much. A visit well to repeat.
    I dont know where to begin. I suppose I should begin from the beautiful carpark walking through well kept gardens, stuffed with flowering apricot clivias and other fragrant flowering plants, past garden benches scattered with cushions and a jimble gym for toddlers to play, to the welcome sounds of a ladies early luncheon and female chatter and laughter. Afroboer is a success story with small beginnings and a huge dream. And I absolutely applaud this owner for her vision and success. Professional and friendly staff welcome you instantly, as you search through the packed rooms filled with women sipping tea and scones, and as you walk past the cake counter and end up sitting across from a well decorated gin bar, you just know this is going to be good! Every plate is special, every cup, unique and detailed. I ordered a bunting naartjie cashew nut cheese cake, my husband the double chocolate cake, and our daughters, a biltong carpaccio, chicken and mayo flatbread and cheese and jam croissant. Such a stunning menu and each dish special. Different, perfect. This is a place you want to frequent with special friends. It's totally memorable and much like a spa treatment, an absolute treat!
