This small place in the middle of Oudtshoorn is serving very tasty lunches to a good price. Chicken pie with a big salad is my favorite. There are many small dishes to chose from. The coffee is also very good to finish of with.

Cafe Brule provides a semi-enclosed street side European cafe setting with in-house bakery, light meals and coffee shop. Situated in the centre of the town, next to the old sandstone masterpiece of the Oudtshoorn Museum, the eatery has won a loyal following for its all-day fix of excellent coffee, food and internet.

Freshly baked artisan breads daily with a variety of local produce on sale, ranging from locally produced olive oil, jams and wine. Aldo on offer are scrumptious lunches either on a set menu or from our blackboard!
