At No. 16 Queen Street you will find Penny's Place. A unique combination of coffee shop and gallery. The diverse art on display is representative of many local artists and those from neighbouring towns. The coffee shop offers delicious home baked...more
An excellent spot for an interesting display of paintings, drawings, ceramics and crafts.
The food is fabulous, not a "sniff" of Boerenkos !
Fresh, crisp salads, tasty quiches and luscious cakes. The homemade cordials and iced teas are very refreshing on a hot Karoo day....More

Thank you for such a lovely, heartwarming review. I had decided that I had to offer something not normally available and as I am vegetarian and love baking my menu has developed into what it is.
We were on our way to Matjiesfontein and stopped for coffee. It is a small art gallery where one can also purchase small snacks, generally made by Penny herself, a very friendly person. The quiches were lovely and a nice surprise to be served cafetièrs...More

Thank you so much for taking the time to send the lovely review. The iced coffee is a firm favourite in summer and for some die hards in winter too. If you are passing by in winter you could try my hot chocolate.
We were looking for a quick lunch and stumbled on Penny's Place purely by luck. It was just perfect and the freshly baked quiches with salad truly delicious. There is some beautiful art, pottery and glass on display (and for sale) and it was just...More

Wow, thank you. I am so glad you enjoyed the cakes and the art pieces by many of the Calitzdorps artists. I am very fortunate to have such a lovely space within which I can have the gallery and coffee shop.

My wife and I were doing the Route 62 alternative to the N2 Garden Route and fancied a cup of tea. By accident we found Penny's. It's a lovely back street place. We had lemonade, hot tea and a frangipani tart - delicious. It was...More

Thank you for the lovely review. Queen Street in fact used to be the main road into town but love the fact that it's off the main road now and so has a lovely peaceful atmosphere. I am glad you enjoyed your visit and hope...More
