Shaded under large oak trees and overlooking the Langeberg mountains, African Shades Restaurant is the ideal place to stop over for a meal. With plenty of garden & outside stoep seating on offer for those long hot summer afternoons and a roaring fireplace inside for those chilli winter days. Using the freshest available ingredients, we ensure that every plate of food looks and tastes great. We serve Italian ?Illy Espresso?, an absolute delight for the coffee lover! Our bar is always well stocked with ice cold beers and local wines. We also serve the uniquely South African Red Espresso ? - the rooibos alternative to espresso coffee with a funky range of tasty, yet extremely healthy hot and cold drinks.
