Stopped here for coffee and cakes and sundowner drinks at different times during our stay in Franschhoek. As it is just off the road in a square it is good for sitting outside and people watch away from car fumes. The cakes we had were delicious and the gin and tonic very strong! Service was friendly and quick. Recommend for... More

After a day of wine and beer tasting in Franschhoek we were looking for a late lunch/early evening snack. The Sacred Ground offered us that opportunity - the food was of a good quality and the salads were on the large side. Additionally the menu offers a great selection of vegetable and fruit juices - the two that we drank... More

We held a birthday lunch for my 88 year old father-in-law and the staff went out of their way to make us comfortable. It was a hot day and this spot was in the shade. The food was interesting and tasty juding by the empty plates and the smiling faces. Do give it a try.

We've had coffees, light lunch, sundowners and bought take-away from Sacred Ground. Every time the service is friendly and prompt. It's a lovely place to people watch, the food is good and fairly priced.

Stopped for a light lunch here whilst touring the vineyards. Gorgeous spring day, sat outside and were promptly served. We picked up on vibes of disagreements between staff and witnessed what looked like an impromptu team meeting! Nit a nice thing to see whilst on holiday, you just want to relax and drink in the atmosphere! Wrong sort! However, there... More

While waiting for our wine tram experience we decided to try this restaurant for breakfast. Situated in a quaint off-street open courtyard, the breakfasts all round were good as was the coffee. Would happily recommend this spot for a light meal.
