The "padstal" offers ample, secure parking outside, although caution is advised when navigating the flow of traffic. Its strategically positioned location along the N2 between Bot River and Caledon makes it an ideal stop for travellers seeking respite from the road. Our journey from Franschhoek...to Struisbaai was punctuated by a delightful pause here. The staff exhibited exceptional friendliness and attentiveness. The quality of the coffee surpassed expectations, and the curio shopping experience was unparalleled, offering a diverse array of rugs, ornaments, and postcards. A visit to this establishment is highly recommended. We've made a note to return in the future, eager to indulge in another round of exceptional coffee and to peruse the unique curios on offer. Especially the "Nastergal" jam we discovered.More

We visited this amazing stall a while ago. This is probably one of the best "farm stalls" in the country because of the huge stock variety and amazing "boerekos" . You could easily get lost for hours in the space... Thousands of bits and pieces...that remind you of yesteryear...More

The food is proper South African and their portions are fit for a hearty appetite! They have a nice selection of wines. The restaurant is also surrounded by interesting shopping items. It is always a pleasure visiting this farm stall.

I've been going to Dassisfontein for years now and always thoroughly looked forward to our trips there. Myself and my Mom love going through the masses of stuff from the cheese shop, gifts, leather section, clothes etc and always used to buy a few items,...we love the variety. The last few times we've walked out shocked at the prices of everything ! Most things are terribly overpriced now and it just feels like a tourist trap. I also agree with a previous comment made by someone, the place could also use a good dusting and clean. Sad, I miss the old Dassies.More

This farmstall looks interesting from the outside but looks can be deceiving. Do not stop! If you stop then you will experience terrible service and terrible food. If you have ever been in a school hostel then the food here will look and taste familiar....Carrots and peas cooked in water. Cheap rice and whatever else you get will be equally tasteless.More

The whole family wants to stop here, from the youngest teenagers to the oldest Oupa and Ouma. Always very good food and very cozy and warm around the fireplace. The meat pie is also a must together with the soups. Take you time and enjoy...the place and go searching for things you didn’t know you neededMore

Ordered their 1 plate with 5 Boerekos dishes(Bobotie, Lamb curry, Beef curry, Afval, and Tomato stew). Absolutely fantastic... just like Ouma made it. Full of flavour, large portions, and all elements cooked to perfection. Would really recommend them, and will frequent again often.

We took our Canadian family and my daughter in law was in awe. Spent aged digging through the metal handles and door nobs. The highlight however, was my grand daughters (6 & 9 ) feeding the donkeys with carrots that are available in the shop....I find the prices rather expensive, but with dollars, the foreigners do not seem to mindMore
