An exciting newcomer to the village restaurant row brings paddock to plate to town in the country kitchen of farmer owners Alex and baker/chef Tabby.
The blackboard menu is built around the homegrown organic farm produce of the café owners as well as artisanal growers in the Overberg. The free-range fare tempts with hen or duck egg omelettes (if the ducks are laying), signature farm rabbit and farm pork – all reared on natural, organic grains, grasses and vegetables. For one of the best brekkers in the Overberg, you can’t go wrong with trout gravadlax and golden Graze eggs Benedict served with home-cured bacon on sweet potato or marrow rosti – or the signature vegetarian “zodwa” of halloumi, poached farm eggs, wild mushrooms, avo, tomato salsa and tzatziki. Where else in the Cape can you get tender homegrown rabbit ravioli with bok choi and red peppers? Or succulent homegrown pork belly flavoured with wild amaranth. Vegetarians will love the wild mushroom and roast garlic gnocchi. The natural, fresh flavours of organic farm meats, homegrown vegetables, herbs, salads are preserved in delicious country fare plated simply in creative combinations. Make sure to try the prawn toast and baked Cambrie with coppa ham. Leave room for a decadent chocolate lava cake or granadilla meringue.
A good selection of craft beers, Overberg wines and great coffee.
Warm and welcoming, from start to finish, with good advice on styling of dishes.
Casual and comfy, the place to catch up on local gossip and happenings.
A lazy family brunch on the stoep, watching life pass by on main street in a Cape country village on Saturday morning. Don’t miss the artisanal market on Wednesday mornings at the café.

This is a tiny restaurant with a big heart! Always book ahead of time particularly since it's only open over the weekend. Everything is delicious - don't forget the desserts. Do remember that they serve breakfast (the best scramble eggs) and amazing coffee.
