A place you must stop!
Jan 2021 • Family
What a treat! Homemade quiches and cakes to die for - kids asked for more! Penny’s iced-tea in both lemon and berry highly recommended to counter the 35 degree heat. Such a lovely, creative space.
A have-to stop when in Calitzdorp.

Thanks so much for that lovely review. I am happy you enjoyed your meal and especially the salad. For me the salad is an intergral part of the meal with as many interesting additions that I can add in order to do that.

I am sorry to only reply to your review now. It somehow got lost in the airwaves. It was a pleasure and glad you had the opportunity to wonder around our little town.

Best Cake I’ve Ever Had!
Aug 2019 • Friends
Had 2 lovely home baked lunches at Penny’s Place and was seriously impressed. Here is a lady who can really cook and bake. And I can honestly say the date cake with coconut layer was the best cake I have ever eaten, and I have eaten a lot of cake in my time! Penny was as lovely as her food too. Well worth a visit.

Excellent food and great art on sale
Feb 2019 • Couples
We stopped on the long drive from Swellendam to Oudtshoorn for a light lunch, we had plum & almond cake and a savoury scone which were both very good. We left with beautiful painted cushion covers and a woven wire bowl as memories of our stop in Calitzdorp. Penny has curated a high quality selection of art and decorative pieces; recommended.

A 'Quality' spot
Jan 2019 • Couples
Clean, neat, stylish and fresh

Muffins that are muffins, not scones or cakes.
Quiche without being too 'eggy'. Quality simple ingredients, knowledgeable cook and quality coffee shop products.

The displayed art was affordable and i did see something I liked. Maybe I'll buy next time I stop there and there will be a next time.

Small, cool and kind of off the main routes. Situated on route to de Kranz winery as well as close to Boplaas.
Exceptional service, small but excellent menu - Iced Coffee the absolute best. Out of the norm pastries and cakes, tasty lunches - Penny will be hard to beat - well worth the effort

Wow, what a lovely review and helpful directions. The iced coffee is often a suprise as many of my visitors think of iced coffee as a milk shake. This way is far more interesting - and delicious. Thank you for stopping by and for taking the time to give a review.

The Best Option in Calitzdorp
Dec 2018 • Couples
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.
The owner is friendly and charming. Don't miss this place for a delicious lunch or indulgent tea.

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.
