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.

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.

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

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.

    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!
    The place is beautiful, a jewel hidden in the dust of Lynnwood road. They are always creating new dishes. The vegan quiche was amazing! I see for every opportunity to come here with friends or alone! relaxing and delicious experience.
    Lovely place to spend a morning or afternoon outside! Our whole family loves it there!!
    Great food, stunning garden, excellent service. They always ensure you have a great experience.
    I love going back to Afroboer again and again and again. Yesterday with the coldest weather we went there and was received with the warmest atmosphere, best moerkoffie and lovely food.
    Best breakfast and lunch that I have enjoyed in quite a while! Delicious, freshly made food with unique dishes. Love the chicken livers! Highly recommended!
    Whole menu is awesome, but the scones are to DIE for! Best I've ever tasted in all of Pretoria
    The restaurant is amazing has an awesome warm fireplace in winter. The food is outstanding and the best is the moerkoffie. The cakes are to die for. Amazing
    Just love Afro-Boer.
    Afro Boer is my happy place. A place I can go to have a few hours of peace and quiet. Away from all the hustle and bustle of daily life. A place wish is warm and welcoming. With a sweet treat. Xxx
    Great restaurant with lovely atmosphere. Delicious, innovative menu with great variety! Always a pleasure to dine at with the whole family.
    I simply love the style. The food is beautiful and delicious and on another level. As a mom and parents we love the kiddies play area and the little one's nice menu. Also having a braaibroodjie on your menu makes you a winner i my eyes. Its a lovely place to relax and know you will get good service and even better food.
    Love Afroboer. Their food is healthy and they cater for people with dietary restrictions. One of my top places go to in Pretoria.
    Afro Boer is definitely one of my favorite coffee shops in Pretoria. I love the atmosphere and the staff is always friendly. They have an amazing variety of food and drinks it makes it hard to choose what to have.
    The most beautiful and coziest restaurant in South Africa!! Delicious food and excellent service!!!
    Always my first choice if me and my friends wants to unwind & relax. Absolutely love the menu, great service & quality food. Great relaxed and chic vibe.
    Such an amazing restaurant! Love the atmosphere and ability to relax there. The food has such a traditional South African taste with a modern twist. The menu has a wide variety of options and portions are very well sized, and the bakery is filled with lovely fresh produce. They are also often engaged in community outreach endeavors and give the public an opportunity to do good. The staff are also always friendly and genuine. My favorite spot to eat, study and treat myself in Pretoria!
    Afroboer home away from home. As a mommy of two busy boys there is a place where I can go for good coffee, delicious eats and some quiet time, I can find all that and more at Afro Boer. You always feel welcomed as you enter the doors until you leave. Xxx

    Lovely menu variety with food that reminds you of days forgotten! Everything is beautifully prepared and presented. The banting and health options are a bonus. The service and location is great.
    Absolutly love this place!!! Best chicken livers in world!!!!'
    First we eat and then we do everything else. No better place to relax, to drink wine and eat good food. The banting cheese cake, is the best I've ever tried.
    Lovely place to visit. You can just sit and unwind in the beautiful garden. Great coffee, delicious food (the eggs benedict are delicious), lovely freshly baked treats, excellent service! A real gem!
    Love everything on the menu! The selection of baked goods are to die for and super friendly staff. It is also child and pet friendly, which makes it super convenient. This place is always a good idea:)

    Excellent experience!!
    Definitely the place you want to go and enjoy excellent food and service. Love the lush green garden and there is a playarea for the kids, bonus!! See you there!
    Afro boer is a delightful gem in Pretoria east. We have celebrated countless occasions here and we have always been met with a smile and amazing service. The food is incredible and the drinks menu is really something different. I would recommend them for any function or even just a lazy Saturday lunch. I recommend you try the cauliflower soup and the kiddies Mac and cheese is amazing!

    Afroboer is my favorite restaurant. They never disappoint. Their gluten free bread and baked goods are to die for! Would recommend them to anyone.

    You will NEVER be disappointed! They so good and popular that it's a good idea to book. My favorite place to go and I'm never hesitant to recommend them, I know for sure they will deliver amazing food, great service and a wonderful fuzzy feeling inside.
    Food prepared with natural ingredients. An honest menu for everyone to love!
    We Love going to Afroboer, sitting in the garden where the kids can run around and play while the mommies catch up. Waiters and service both excellent, not even to begin with how great the food is. What I truly love about Afroboer is how they always find a way to pay it forward, mothers mothersday month we got free lunch and wine for bringing items for those less fortunate, for father's day they found a way to give back to the rhino while letting dads and family have a great time over a bottle of wine on the house. Even me writing this review gives back to those hungry and needy. Afroboer is so much more than just a fabulous cafè,its a loving, giving place where memories are made with friends and good times all around. Thanks Afroboer.
    The moment you walk through the doors, it feels like walking into your mothers kitchen with the smell of freshly baked goods and brewed coffee waiting to be enjoyed at the kitchen table with endless conversation... This is my home away from home. My escape when life gets overwhelming. The food not only tickles every tastebud but also touches the heart as it’s prepared with so much love and attention to detail. This is my definition of comfort food! They serve favorites, but with a special twist or two to put a signature on every dish. highly recommended and most definitely worth it!
    Was lucky to get a table without a reservation, the kids loved it and the food was great
    Delicious food with a unique variety!
    This place is the bomb!!! Had my babyshower here and the food as usual was out of this world. The owner and all the staff always goes out of their way to make you feel welcome. The cakes are to die for yummmm!!!!
    We never really celebrated Valentines Day untill we went for breakfast at Afro Boer this year. What was supposed to be just a quick brekkie, turned out te be something very special - amazingly fresh farm breakfast in a beautiful farm setting, with the smell of freshly baked goods in the air, the sound of chickens running around in the background, beautiful surroundings and superb service. With my husband being a real boertjie and me being a city girl - this is the perfect place for us and definitely stole our hearts. I guess we are celebrating Valentines Day now, at Afro-Boer, every year.
    Afroboer is one of the BEST places to visit! We eat there regularly. We do early morning walks with our dogs as this is a pet friendly venue, or we cycle past and stop for a breakfast and coffee! We always say Afroboer makes the BEST coffee in Pretoria! I'm also a banter, so their menu is great with loads of variety catering for almost ANY diet! I LOVE their banting cheese cake! Keep it up Afroboer!!
    Its' just perfect on every level! The venue, the gardens, the service, the menu, the attention to detail - it is simply perfect! The menu is so diverse and interesting one is tempted to try everything making it essential to return for another visit. Being a bakery you naturally focus on the fresh delights popping out of the ovens at regular intervals - another temptation. The owners/managers run a tight ship with their fingers firmly on the pulse - something that is evident in the plates of perfection that emanate from the kitchen. Will I return? - for sure!!!
    One of my favourite places to go lunch with my mom and my small boys food is always so delicious and the best friendly staff.
    Afro Boer is an amazing place to go! The food is fantastic and it is a great place to go with kids. We had a lovely picnic on the lawn with our baby who devoured his Mac and cheese. The only thing I
    One can escape the city at this wonderful little gem. Beautiful gardens, play area for kids and a relaxing atmosphere with funky food. Mens voel tuis, asof jy by ouma se plaas huis en stoep kuier. Baie lekker
    This is the place to be on a Saterday morning with the family. The coffee is great! The breakfast is scrumptious. I just love the beautiful gardens there, lets you just forget for a moment that you actually live in the city. PS: Dont forget their delectable Milkshakes and Rainbow cake!
    There are not many places that deserve an all round 5-star rating. This place felt like a little piece of heaven hidden away within a busy city. The atmosphere was so relaxed! Catering for young couples, families, pensioners or even singles looking for a good coffee breakaway. And the food could not be faulted. Delicious! I told my whole family about Afro-Boer after my hubby surprised me with a brunch date here. Best choice; will now be our first choice!
    One of the best in the country! Constantly trying to better the menu if that is even possible. You can taste the love, best ingredients and passion in each bite!!! Best of all just 2km from my house.....
    Afroboer is a little bit of heaven in Pretoria. The atmosphere and service is superb, the food is the best quality and super tasty. The cakes are just the best in Pretoria!! And they cater for gluten and dairy free - amazing!
    Patrons are always welcomed by friendly staff and an incredible hostess. I've frequented Afro Boer now for two years, and have only ever experienced impeccable service. A dynamic menu with local delights, freshly baked treats and a hidden gem in their Moer Koffie, something I have found to be a new found delight. I love your atmosphere, and attention to detail, and you have a wonderful garden for the children to enjoy. An absolute treasure, well done on establishing and maintaining a truly fabulous restaurant.
    I love this place so much and people know that, so even my son treated his mother for coffee and cake at Afroboer when he had to come to Pretoria a few days ago. A special memory made at a special place!
    There are a few places in Pretoria that make you feel like you're on a mini vacation. Sitting on the stoep with a generous cup of yumminess, soaking up the winter sun, is enough to make anyone breathe a little easier. I constantly have to remind myself not to put my feet up... I love everything about this place. Surrounded by the most beautiful, lush garden, Afro-Boer is my go-to for long afternoon catch-up sessions with dear friends, lunch with the family and much needed introvert blogging times. Friendly staff, scrumptious meals and can I also just say, I'll live off the banana bread... Just saying. High five!
    My wife recently celebrated a special birthday and AfroBoer was our choice for a special high tea. From the planning of the party to the big day, nothing was ever too much trouble for management and staff. Add the special ambience of AfroBoer to the quality of the food served and we were it once that we got much more than what we have paid for. Michelle, Maria and staff you rock!
    What a delightful experience. Mother and I had a late lunch after shopping so we were starving when we arrived. It was a sunny autumn afternoon and we opted to sit outside. It is really lovely as the garden is beautiful with huge trees and a lot of laughter and people. They were extremely busy but what I really appreciated is the moment we sat down our waitress brought us a glass of water with lemon and ice without us asking. The drinks selection are very large and I had one of the best g&t ever, the pink lady. I ordered the burger without buns and it was a very nice big portion. It was tasty and the salsa is very good. I would've liked fries but they only offer lays chips or salad. The salad would have been nice with a little cheese in. The bathrooms are clean and tidy and I really enjoyed our afternoon lunch at this little teagarden.
    Love ❤️ love ❤️ love ❤️ I love this place, such a wonderful atmosphere and the food is divine at very good prices. Yummy coffee and always friendly service. Thank you and keep up the good work!
    If you are looking for something different with an amazing atmosphere and vibe, this is the place for you! Friendly staff, amazing venue and the food is out of this world! A must try! I promise you will be back again and again!
    Afro Boer is a unique and exceptional restaurant. It caters for everyone and is very family friendly. We spent a Sunday afternoon on their lashes lawn under the big trees where they have picnic benches and anklets. Our toddler could run around while we sampled their fantastic menu. I can't wait to go back and make more memories.
    I have been going to Afroboer for the past 4 years. I travel 30+ kms to experience their great food and service. So worth it! Michelle and her team are truelly remarkable at what they do. The menu is amazing - I always struggle to decide what to order. But if I had to single out something it has to be their mosbolletjie french toast! Oh my goodness...its life changing! Whats even more amazing is that they are now open on Sundays! Love taking my family there or catching up with friends over a good cuppa and delicious bakes. From the creative menu to the relaxed setting...its memorable every time! Definitely a must visit spot in Pretoria!
    Great ambience and defintely a favourite to visit with friends and family on a Saturday morning. The food is delicious and the service received from staff is excellent. Highly recommended.
    A absolute must visit, at least once a week!!! The hole 9 yards, plus the extra! Thank you for being a part of the hospitality, well done and keep it up!!!!
    Afroboer is my favourite venue when in the area. The menu is very innovative, and the food is excellent. The decor is great. Well done Afroboer team.
    One of my favourite spots which I visit often for visits with friends. Had my birthday there(they bake amazing cakes) and took my brother there when he came to visit from Australia for a nice SA vibe. The food is always fresh and my fav brekkie is the mosbrood french toast with koeksister syrup-YUM. They have something on the menu for everyone from-super healthy to next level indulgance. Staff are always friendly and helpful and they don't mind having littlies around too. Too excited for the new drinks menu! Def worth a visit-you'll def be back again!
    I love how relaxing the atmosphere is... feels like you want to spend the whole day there.. especially surrounded by the beautifull gardens.. and the kids love it because they can run and play! The food is always fantastic and fresh with some interesting choices on both the food and drinks menu! not to mention the yummy baked goodies...!! Definitely a favourite meeting place for the girlfriends with kids!
    Afroboer is an awesome place with an amazing atmosphere and great service. With amazing food.
    I love this place! The moerkoffie and Kooktee are two of my fave beverages and the Braaibroodjies are to die for. Afro Boer truly caters to all ages and tastes. It is the best place for a catch up with friends, to do a bit of creative work or study.
    Love that I can take my children there where they can play outside. Food is always great!!
    Delicious, delightful, delectable. Afroboer is one of my favourite foodie places. With huge cups of excellently brewed coffee and all the favourite dishes with a twist. Did I mention the mouthwatering cheesecake? There is a lovely garden and a playarea for the kids, so it caters for young and old.I would recommend this place to everyone......
    Heerlike sonskyn én snoesige oggende saam met my vriendinne. Afroboer is altyd ons eerste keuse waar ons kwaliteit tyd kan saam deur bring om ñ lekker bord kos en heerlike drinkgoed. Dankie vir julle (altyd) warm en vriendelike diens!
    I always say to my friends and family: "No place in this world makes better coffee than Afroboer!" That is the truth. We go there often on a morning walk with our Beagles (YES, they are Pet Friendly) and have a coffee and/or breakfast. They cater for almost any diet - which I love as I am a keen banter. My husband enjoys the 'Moer koffie' with condensed milk as well as the Salted Caramel Coffee! They also have a selection of cakes and bake the BEST Choc Macadamia Banting cake one can hope for! Sometimes I just stop there for a quick take-away slice! This is one of our favourite spots even when stopping there on our way back from a long distance cycle! The atmosphere is great and you can even have a beer in the beautiful garden! The staff are friendly and even offer to bring your pets water!! Keep going Afroboer!!
    One of my favorite places in Pretoria!! I just love this little Gem in Equestria and the “to die” for amazing cakes!!! A must visit!!!
    A great venue in which to enjoy any meal of the day, or simply coffee and dessert! I have yet to have a bad meal at this restaurant; everything is always delicious and worth the wait. If you are looking for dishes both traditional (“like Ouma used to make”) and with a new flair the menu will have something for you. I recommend a visit to everyone when they are in the area!
    Great service, fantastic food complimented by a tranquil atmosphere. Loving it more and more every time! Keep up the good work Afro-Boer team
    What a great place. Very warm and friendly staff. Your drinks and food are excellent. Will go there again and again
    Afroboer is a strong favourite with my friends and myself. A cosy huddle place in the sun in einter and cool breezy fresh air visits in summer. The service is always friendly and attentive and the food and drink exceptional and I find very innovative.
    Beautiful tea garden which is suitable for any occasion. I love to start off my Saturday morning with their Shredded lamb sandwich and a Chai Latte. Best in Pretoria!
