The hosts are Jadri and Nita who own the farm Vrede and have now opened Die Plaaskombuis. The food is great with many well known Afrikaans dishes as well as the normal stuff

We called in Die Plaaskombuis for breakfast on our day visiting Hermanus, primarily because of the reviews I had read about the "breakfast bunny chow". Well it was okay but not as special as the reviews make out - the bread case lacked flavour and...More

Having passed through Hermanus for many years, we decided to take the route to Caledon and came across the Plaaskombuis. On the day they were quite busy. My wife opted for the chicken breasts with veggies and was very impressed. They served pumpkin pie, cauliflower,...More

Sunday brunch here and not disappointed. I had the venison pie. Lovely. I recommend this venue for a nice meal but don't expect fancy.

We were desperate for a coffee so the coffee sign outside seemed like an invitation to an oasis. You enter through a shop filled with interesting bric-a-brac and emerge into a large cafe. Not a particularly friendly welcome. We felt that we were interrupting something...More

What a disappointment! A few years ago, we had lunch at this interesting restaurant/shop filled with bric-a-brac and Afrikaans memorabelia, where the food was reasonable and very tasty. Even the coffee was different - where Moer coffee using filter bags and metal cups kept the...More
