Good location, must be very pretty in summer, outside under the trees. Had good cappuccino and coffee/almond cake. Service was no problem. I can see it is popular with university staff, popping for a quick snack or coffee with colleagues. I hear the "harvest table"...More

This restaurant is the best one ever i tried in South Africa! If you didnt come to this place, you havent come to Stellenbosch! Must go! Not expensive at all but extreme high quality of food! Especially the burger and buffet!

I eat here at least a couple of times a month (it is a 2 min walk from campus). Dish up the best dishes and think you are at home....

Tastebud has of the best breakfasts in Stellenbosch, and their harvest table (where you dish up cooked food yourself) is absolutely to-die-for. I come here weekly!
