The heavens opened unexpected and everyone in the street was running for cover. We chose well! We went to Fynbos and were greeted most warmly and sincerely. We enjoyed delicious and very large slices of cake and wonderful coffee. Magazines for those on their own or wanting solitude. Beautiful decor to look at. Exceptional staff. We watched as one gentleman... More

Fynbos is a special place to sit down and relax and take your time. Excellent coffee available, Hazz from Stellenbosch. A must try is the Tomato bredie!! Absolutely finger licking great!! Great selection of desserts too. Dont expect fast food. If you are in a hurry a Wimpy or similar fast food establishment would probably suit your needs better. I... More

We visited fynbos as a family of 5. Lovely setting, beautiful surroundings. The food was nice. However, the service was terrible. We waited very long for our drinks (coffee, tea, shakes). When our food arrived, one dish (a chicken salad) did not arrive with the rest of the food. We only received the chicken salad about 30 mins after the... More

We have been coming to Fynbos for many years, but today the service was really bad. Cold tea, wrong drinks, cake comes after two cups of tea have been drank, slow overall. Can unfortunately not recommend anymore.

Was there for breakfast which was very nice, but the service wasn't that good. Pay attention to your customers.

Stopped in for coffee and a snack, first up an interesting sign on the gate and it was locked so you needed to be buzzed in. Inside it looks like an old house that has been redesigned into little alcoves for shopping and the restaurant off to one side. I sat in the comfortable back patio area and enjoyed a... More

Lovely restaurant, good variety on menu, good for lunch, brunch or n between. Gifts can be bought and there is a variety of goods to purchase. Service is sometimes slow, don't be in a hurry. Worth a visit

An excellent coffee shop with good wholesome food. Very clean with friendly well trained staff. The mince on toast for breakfast, the apple crumble for dessert, the mutton curry/bobotie for lunch- try them all! Can't wait to go back again and again!
