Along with having a not to miss garden covering more then 500 hectares this place is huge! So take a break and enjoy the Tea Room it is a refuge of relaxation.
The gift shop is also the best, save time, do not miss. Several unique items I have not seen any where else and lots of great souvenirs to choose from

Of course the food isn’t why you go to Kirstenbosch, but after sampling this place it really should be!

We had a late breakfast at this great spot. The table outside was lovely and the service impeccable. The menu is extensive but fantastic quality and reasonably priced as well!

The full English was fantastic, as was the French Toast. We also tried the bran and raisin, and cinnamon and cranberry muffins (also delicious).

The banana milkshake was to die for and all in all I think we could’ve tried everything on the menu and struggled to find anything but fantastic quality food!

When one works so hard to make every aspect of the restaurant so good it is wonderful to get a review like this.
Thank you so much

We visited on 30 Dec 2017 after strolling through the gardens. It's obviously a lovely setting being within the gardens. The service was good & all the food was great from full breakfast to waffles ordered in our family of 4. The breakfast was really great value for money worthwhile if you have a good appetite. Most items on the menu was fairly well priced & worth a stop during your walk in the gardens.

Disappointed to hear no scones available at 11:15 in the morning. Charged for the missing scones. Surly waiters. As a Capetownian we are saddened that tourists might experience the same. Definitely not a true reflection of our beautiful city!!!

Tea Room With Fresh Scones.
Our scones are baked throughout the day as we need them. As a Capetonian I am happy that this is appreciated by the vast majority of our customers both local and international.

Fab little café in beautiful Kirstenbosch gardens, with the most amazing quality/price ratio...we had eggs shakshuka for lunch after a hike up table mountains and they were just perfect. Highly recommended.
