For a city person, the food won’t blow you away. It’s a small menu and the presentation of the food isn’t fancy. Having said that, it is a farm kitchen and the breakfast was filling and tasty. I can see how this location is a...hit for families with young kids, however, having goats and chickens and ducks scurrying around the dining area isn’t appropriate. Friendly staff and smiles from the locals.More

I think the food is secondary at Groeneweide. However the view, the animals and the whole ambience spells relaxation. And what a wonderful venue for city kids to come and have fun. And by the way, the food is great too, especially the sheep curry

Lovely staff. Beautiful place. We were there on Sunday and they close at 15:00. We only got there at 14:45 and they still made an exception for us by making us beverages and some amazing food. Their prices are very good. Will definitely pay a...visit again to Groeneweide when we're close by. Would recommend this place to anyone. Views are amazing. Perfect place for a family outing😁More

I visited this restaurant during the week. In Gansbaai and Franskraal is was about the only restaurant open on a Tuesday. My mum is super fussy and she loved it. The whole farm atmosphere and friendly staff that makes you feel like family so adds...to the experience. Amazing great food and the best turmeric latte you will find.More

What is not to enjoy if you can shop for plants while enjoying a scrumptious breakfast or lunch or just coffee and yummy cakes. Service little slow but our waiter was so friendly that we decided to relax and take in the distant sea views,...watch the kids running around and the animals. Food is good, hearty local and prepared with love. Cakes looked yummy. We will have to return to try the selection! Always a great plus if the toilet facilities are neat and clean, .. indicates caring owners. Do try this lovely place.More

We visited this beautiful coffee shop and nursery in December. We had the fabulous Turmeric lattes. Amazing friendly service and staff. Extremely kid friendly. Love the sheep and chickens everywhere as well as the tortoise rehab at the back.

Excellent service and good and tasty traditional food. This is a farm setup so take the kids and roam the farm yard and nursery. Breakfast, lunch or a light meal - they are all very good.

What a surprise this little gem was. A restaurant with farm animals coming to say hello. A small Nursery to browse through. The food was good and the service excellent. Our Waitress was so friendly. The view of the Indian Ocean from the front stoep...was lovely and I recommend you take binoculars so you can watch the fishing boats go by in the distance.More

Couldn’t fault the breakfast and they use their own produce. Bought the apricot jam served with our meal as it was delicious. Looking forward to trying the chicken pie we bought for later.

Waited for ages for cold coffee, then ask to go because the main meal is being served shortly! The owner was unfriendly and rude.

We booked a table for the 1st of January, escaping of the post party kitchen with 4 kids and a full house. We sat next to the kids play area where we spent 4 hours, relaxing, eating and chatting about what the new year holds...in store while the kids had the most amazing time on the jungle gym and slippery slide. The food is simple, hearty and delicious. The service; relaxed and friendly. Well done! It is an awesome spot.More

We were made to feel so welcome by Lonnie and his wife. A perfect cup of tea and generous cake portions rounded off our visit with the goats, sheep, geese, ostriches and tortoises. Kiddies paradise and the grown ups had fun too.

Most unexpected! When you land on a doorstep after a not well thought through sper of the moment and total laps of judgment break away in high season and you are welcomed with so much warmth. All I can say is what a place. This...is my kind of people. They do everything themselves so yes you wait 15 min longer, but there are so many animals to entertain you. Kids can play, dogs play fetch, massive rescue tortoises, goats, geese and many more. Thank you for a 3 day break that we will NEVER forgetMore
