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.

    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!
    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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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!

    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.
