With only 55 classic buttery French croissants made daily, you can guarantee the freshest-possible, best-quality pastry with minimal waste for the café.
A Cozy Space to Linger
John Hamman and Marius Uys, the proprietors of Slippery Spoon Kitchen, operate the café and have made it an enticing place to loiter. The front sun-dappled stoep is ideal for appreciating country life, or you can choose from the cozy vestibule or stunning mezzanine, which features a ceiling-flower arrangement by The Wild Bunch Flower Farm. If you’re in a hurry, pick up your takeout at the curb. The freshly produced coffee from the Baard & Co microbrewery is also a delight.
