Absolutely devine. Chicken curry was so tasty and full of flavour. Chicken Schnitzel extremely tender and full of flavour. Well done to the kitchen staff and waitresses that were so friendly and full of smiles. Will definitely visit again.

Service is terrible! I stand at the counter to pay and the manager just stand there and talk to a waitress. I wait for almost 10 minutes! Worst experience in my life!

We have passed this bakery many times while staying in Franschhoek and cycling in the area - it always seemed busy. We had coffee and toasted banana bread, both of which were good and the service was very friendly. We bought some excellent ciabatta for...our picnic lunch and two delicious little pies. We are hoping to return to try the breakfast.More

Nice selection of fresh bread, just a pity that you could not buy cold cured meats. Friendly service was a boon.

Stopped for lunch en route to Franschoek. Excellent sandwiches and salads, reasonable prices. Great carrot juice. Rustic ambience in keeping with the rural surrounds. Excellent outdoor seating in the shade. Lots of produce to buy in the bakery/ deli. A visit to the adjoining antiques...barn well worth it. Lingered longer than intended.More

Service all over the place, manager more interested in his computer than waiting customer. No cream with scons at a farm stall, right next one of the largest dairy farms?

Nothing is marked with a price. My husband asked for gluten free options. They only had 1 - some kind of dense, stodgy, bitter citrus cake. He requested a piece, not knowing that it would taste so disgusting. They charged him R55 for it!! I...wouldn’t pay R5 for it. It’s a very small slice. Will NEVER return there. Would much rather get a delicious gluten free chocolate brownie at La Paris for R15.More

We had breakfast on our way to Struisbaai at Ou Meul (mainly to compare to our experience last year at the Touwsrivier branch - NOT the same. Service was a bit slow (apparently some staff had german measles and could not get to work), we...had flies all over and waiter just laughed it off... As in title of this, the food is good, but some improvements needed, especially being associated (nearby) to Franschoek. We will skip this joint in future.More

We were leaving Franschoek yesterday morning when we came across Ou Meul Bakkery. I have a weakness for apple turnovers and was not disappointed. Fresh and delicious. We decided to have a quick breakfast before continuing with our journey. From the friendly smiles and quick...service to the delicious fresh food, all this made our stop so enjoyable.More

I regularly visit Ou Meul as it is quite close to my work. I am a big fan of their sourdough bread and coffee. Many of my colleagues also visit them for a quick pie or tasty treat. I have not had a sit down...meal there, but the place is always busy, so that must be a good sign.More
