If you have never had a roosterkoek, or you have had a roosterkoek....this spot has THE best roosterkoek I have ever eaten. Always top quality, fast service, friendly staff and never a disappointment. My favourite the plain cheese and tomato roosterkoek. My mouth is watering.

At the petrol station you can buy the famous typical Roosterkoek. These are baked outside and filled inside with different fillings.

Our fabulous guide, Rochelle, from Earthstompers, made our stop at Oude Post for Roosterkoeks. it’s a rest station on the Garden Route with gas and food. The most popular Roosterkoek is cheese and jam, but I selected the mince curry. AMAZING! The best thing I...at on our whole trip (and we ate a lot of great food).More

Fresh tatsty almost to the point of chewy which is great....We had plain cheese filling but thqt was really good. Will definitely recommend coffee and roosterkoek. Well worth a visit.More

The Eats: Coffees Sloppy Joe roosterkoek Cheese Roosterkoek The Pros: The roosterkoek was delicious Good value for money Plenty of filling The Cons: One coffee was served with milk. It tasted a bit watered-down. Was fat free milk used? The cheese in the roosterkoek should...be melted more The mince in the sloppy joe was okay, but in need of some love. Has De Oude Bistro become more commercial and less country yummy?More

We stopped at the oude post bistro for coffee. We ordered two lattes and one hot chocolate. Looks like they r still stuck in the apartheid era. After almost 27 yrs od democracy πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ Not very friendly staff. Ask if we could have it in...our travel mugs and we were abruptly told no. They still need to learn a lot about customer service.

The order time for a garage pie or quick sandwich is very long, more than 20min, where other petrol station shops are 2min. There are 4 shelves and the selection of products for shop is extremely limited. The management of the shop seem overworked and...are not helpful. The goats are cute, but skip the shop to avoid dissapointment.More

I recently visited oude post bistro with my family, to cut a long story short my 89 year old aunt fell down a step and broke her left femur. The mentioned step had railings but no warning signs. The biggest disappointment was that not one...staff member assisted us, only a friendly couple having lunch. When confronting the Manager, I was told that he would note it down. I contacted the owner, he was apologetic but also defended his business by suggesting I was responsible for her safety and did not indicate any safety improvements to prevent a recurrence, will never go backMore
