    Tea Garden

    Hidden behind this recently renovated old colonial home is a lovely spacious herb garden, dwarfed by a beautiful large Jacaranda tree, which provides shade for guests while enjoying the delicious home-baked cuisine. We have planted a wide variety of culinary herbs and vegetables to be used in the simple but delectable menu. Salads and open sandwiches are the main items on the menu and on Saturdays a special hot buffet breakfast from 09h00 to 12h00. Home-made scones, muffins, cakes and tarts are prepared in an airy, open and spacious kitchen. Stepping through the doors and into the garden at the back of the house, there is an amazingly tranquil setting with water features, tables, chairs and umbrellas.

    Opening times

    Mondays to Saturdays – 08.30 – 15.30


    The Tea Garden is also available for hire for functions e.g. weddings, kitchen tea’s, baby showers, children’s parties in the garden and various office functions. The dining room table can seat 14 people for small meetings. Seating outside for 30. The Tea Garden can cater for up to 40 people.
