A very chic light bite cafe. Just wish they were open for longer hours. Rocked up several times only to find they were closed. Well worth a visit but check on ours of opening.

We have been coming to Franschhoek for years and have always enjoyed our breakfasts at Smitten. Sadly, after the abrupt and contemptuous attitude of the owner today we will not be returning. Fortunately there are many other wonderful places where guests are made to feel...welcome. Ironically, Get Lost Cafe just around the corner, not only does a fabulous breakfast but is always welcoming. We also love Le Motte Bakery & MotherdoughMore

Breakfast followed by the runs! I had the ostrich mince with poached eggs, and my wife ate eggs benedict. We enjoyed the food, but within 4 hours, we were both confined to barracks with galloping diarreah. One might not be surprised about this in India,...but it’s unacceptable in Franschhoek.More

The decor intrigued us and we were meaning to pop around for breakfast. Such a beautiful menu and set up - unfortunately the staff let this establishment down, quite rude and impatient. We asked to be seated at an open table, only to be denied...and a few minutes later another table be seated there. Waitress Musa was extremely impatient with us deciding on what we would like to order. Unacceptable - the Cappuccino was great, I cancelled the order and left - not so smitten by servers being outright disrespectful.More

Smitten is beautifully decorated in soft colors. The tables are not on top of each other which creates a lovely vibe of space and openness. We had a delicious healthy breakfast which was a work of art and cappuccino was excellent. We returned later for...coffee and the most delicious cake. Chocolate cake was moist and decadent and cheesecake out of this world. We planned to try their lunch menu the next day but unfortunately the deluge happened with 300mm of rain pummeling down overnight - and just like that, Franschhoek closed down.More

Very nice place in the town center. Nice and attentive service. Option of coffee, tea drinks but also lunch options. Tried the lamb, salad bowl and indian chicken curry, all fresh prepared and good. We recommend this place for afternoon drinks, coffee or lunch.
