Between the atmosphere, friendliness of the staff and the food this is my favourite restaurant. My boyfriend and I always order the De Stomme Jonge platter and it is to die for. Can't go wrong if you have a big appetite. That together with a glass of red wine or a Stellenbreau is just the perfect meal.

We ordered platters with an assortment of sweet and savoury toppings for the rooster koek to share betweem four of us. All the food was wonderful and fresh- great cuts of cold meats and wonderfully gooey and mature cheeses.

I would highly recommend De Stomme Jonge for a lunch stop for any adventure out in Stellenbosch. The communal casual dinner is an absolute pleasure and allows for more of a social interaction than many of the formal fine dining experiences that can be had in Stellenbosch.

Our main course came to R198 for both the Stomme Jonge Platter and the Simon van der Stel platter and the extra roosterkoek at R8. As we shared the platters between four, the amazing meal only set us back R50- an absolute bargain!! Especially considering the high quality of food we received.

This is a cafe rather than a restaurant, serving light meals rather than fine cuisine. That said, the food is very tasty -- mainly cheese and/or meat platters arranged around the house speciality, 'roosterkoek' -- that translates roughly as griddlecakes, I suppose -- freshly-baked minature loaves of bread. There are quite a few variations on the basic pattern, offering variety and value. Excellent coffee, too. The place is tiny, but in fine weatehr there are tables outside overlooking the lively Ryneveld Sreet area. A great addition to the restaurants and cafes of Stellenbosch.

Lunch in Stellenbosch is always difficult - because you are spoilt for choice. One Saturday, on our way to another favourite (Cognito in Dorp Street), we stumbled past this small eatery, had a brief look at the menu, and decided to drop by...

So glad we did - the menu, while not extensive, offers a well-balanced selection centred mostly around 'roosterkoek' with various toppings and / or sides. ('Roosterkoek' is a bread cooked on a barbecue grill - their version was rather like a ciabatta).

Opting for one of the 'cheese platters', and a biltong roosterkoek, we were pleasantly surprised by the plain yet tasteful display that arrived - the experience was almost a bit tapas-ish, with having a little bit of various things to go with the roosterkoek.

With a fresh meal for two, including a glass of wine each, coming in at under R150, we will definitly be visiting again...

Doe zo voort!
