We stopped off on a Sunday morning and we were surprised at how busy they were. Stunning to sit under the vine outside where the breeze cooled you off on a hot day. We had the most amazing coffee and then the most amazing chocolate...croissant which was light and rich. My husband is eagerly awaiting the egg nest which they warn you takes a little while but it is so relaxing the wait is a pleasure. Judging by the amount of locals that seem to have favorite tables this is a gem.More
The presence of locals told us that this must be worth a visit and we were not disappointed. Service and food were both superb. Eating outdoors under the shelter of an old vine made the experience even more special.
I saw a review from "Ulrich S", and I am flabbergasted. I frequently visit this place and apart from outstanding coffee and good food, the service I receive every time is simply excellent. Last time I walked in at 13.58 exactly, and I could still...order a takeaway toast, which the staff prepared with great care and a big smile... Well after the for that time being imposed closing time by government. Even in this difficult Corona crisis time, both the owner and his staff go the extra mile. Hence my reaction as it would be unfair to judge a business on one comment...More
If the tourist industry is starting to go again (with local travellers for the forseeable future) then this restaurant is still in clutch out mode ...The owner must change attitude and personell.. How can you turn 5 persons away at 13h45 stating that you closing...at 14h00??? obviously not hurting enough from the Covid crisis. The new game is about good service and particularly South African travellers .
If you close permanently , Riebeek Kasteel would not notice as there are other places that would love to sell Coffee and some lunch or cakes... My company , Big Bay tours , will NEVER use this restaurant again . Let them close at 13h45.......More
