The pies and salads are a favourite. Sit inside or on the terrace. I like the free lemon water and cucumber water on offer for free. Go... More

It’s a lovely quiet place situate on the main rd in the same building as the Queens Hotel. Staff is excellent and I love their home made bread. It’s a place you can visit anytime an its in the centre of Oudtshoorn

We stopped off here for breakfast. Service was fast and friendly and the food was delicious. I highly recommend the croque brule sandwich (ham, cheese, mustard & spring onions). Yummy!

Cafe brulé serves fresh food that is very well prepared. The buffet on a Sunday is simple yet each item on the plate is cooked to make it no ordinary meal.

When it comes to cafes in different cities, I find a really good one and remain a loyal customer. Why go some place else? I'm a creature of habit! For some years now, whenever I have visited with family in Oudtshoorn, this is my favourite place to go. Since the first time back in the nineties (or was it the... More

We were fortunate to grab some lunch. Have always only been there for breakfast, which was very nice. We had ostrich salad and chicken pie.. the most tasty by far.. salad was just balanced right and the chicken pie had the most chicken in it that I have every seen.. great experience and super staff.

Thank Recardo C

I think this restaurant might be in a hotel, although it fronts on the street and has outdoor seating.
