We only had a light lunch but the staff were friendly and the place is lovely and old worldly.
Everybody around us seemed to be enjoying their food.
A good place to stop on the way through Montague.

Our family stopped by Die Boord for a quick coffee on a gloomy morning in Montagu and were thoroughly impressed by their friendly service and stellar outdoor seating area. A few paces from our table was the entrance to the orchards, where one is free to explore. We all enjoyed our drinks and a had a quick browse through the farm stall before moving on down Long Street. I can't think of any reason why we won't be back soon!

We had been driving from Cape Town and my folks were super keen to have some breakfast. We had already stopped at a restaurant outside Robertson and Worcester and been told by both that their kitchens had closed for breakfast and that only lunch was available... this was before 11:30am.

By the time we arrived at Die Boord it was 12:40 and although they close for breakfast at 12:30, the chef happily made some breakfast for Mom and Dad. The service was quick and efficient while still being warm and friendly. The breakfasts were both delicious and the food arrived hot and in a short space of time. I ordered a chicken salad that was absolutely ridiculously delicious. Normally, with a chicken salad you have to scratch around for the good bits but this salad had so many good bits, every bite was simply yummy! The coffee was excellent and the outdoor seating was cool and quirky.

A perfect stop to break a long day on the road!

As this review is written on opening day, I grant some things down to teething problems. However, some things should be right from the get-go, and lack of preparation, is no excuse for a poor dining experience.

The dining facility is brand new, and stark. Some nice artwork adorns the walls and there is plenty of viewing over the orchard and country side outside. When we arrived, the place was about 40% capacity, and yet we were told "I will see if we can find a table for you".. OK, maybe first day nerves for the maitre'd.
We were shown to our table, and immediately were taken aback by the plastic molded chairs. Not what we were expecting from a restaurant which is trying to position itself as being country and natural.
On the table, was some paper printed menus, which really could have been, at the very least, laminated, or even in some sort of holder. The small things matter.
After five minutes, we were attended to by a waiter, who was polite in taking our orders, and our drinks soon arrived as we waited for our breakfast.
My wife, a coffee snob, was immediately put off by the milky weak coffee, and other drinks were merely placed on the table, bottled, un-opened, and un-decanted. The small things matter.
Seventeen minutes after ordering, our breakfast on the table and looked well presented. The poached eggs were over-cooked, a real rookie mistake for any chef. Salt and pepper were not part of the table dressing, so we needed to flag down a waiter, which took a few minutes, to get some. Salt and pepper were supplied, not pepper corns to crack, or sea salt, but simple powedered salt and powdered pepper. The small things matter.
My wife asked for some plain water, and a carafe and a stack of glasses were put on the table and the waiter disappeared quickly, leaving us to sort it out..
The ambiance in the room was akin to an half filled football stadium, and the feel is that of a hall, perhaps more suited to wedding receptions, or other functions, than that of a cafe/restaurant.
I am giving this two stars, as I feel much of the teething problems should never have been apparent, especially as this is not a cheap-eats place, and priced a little over other cafes in the area.
I will certainly go back, and hope for improvement.
