“Lovely pancakes and host”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2012

Gideon makes lovely pancakes, both the healthier and the dessert type. Don't miss the Belgian hot chocolate, or a chance to chat with Gideon, an entertaining host with lots of stories to tell! He's also somewhat of a language genious and a famous Franschhoek local.
Staff is also warm and welcoming.
Looking forward to come back and have pancakes next time!

“Excellent hosts and the Best Pankakes from Franschhoek”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2012

Unfortunately found this place almost at the end of my trip.
The hosts are wonderful and I'm sure they have the best pankakes in franschhoek because I've tried them all :)

Take time to have a meal there if you pass by Franschhoek. It's a no miss place!

“Enchanting host and tantalizing food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2012

Gideon and his team makes you feel warm and welcome, long before you indulge in their decadent creations.

If you love tasty, flavourfull, delights then this is the cosy stop you must make when in Franschoek.

“The best EVER!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2012

Thank you to Gideon and the team for an amazing experience. Did not know that pancake can brighten up a dull and rainy day in such an amazing way! First time to have a chicken curry pancake... but not my last!
