Celebrate The Good Life at the Bubbly and Oyster Bar at De Warenmarkt

Celebrate The Good Life at the Bubbly and Oyster Bar at De Warenmarkt

Introducing the Kaapse Vonkel MCC and Oyster Bar, where bubbly flows and fresh oysters abound.

If you haven’t yet been to De Warenmarkt on Stellenbosch’s Plein Street, allow us to be paint an ever-so-quick picture. Situated in a cherished 18th-century building, in the cultural heart of this winelands town, this artisanal food market is home to a collective of diverse and passionate purveyors of gourmet street food and drinks. Its latest addition – the Kaapse Vonkel MCC and Oyster Bar – had us bubbling with joy…

The world is your oyster… and so is the MCC

The newest member of De Warenmarkt’s family is the Kaapse Vonkel MCC and Oyster Bar, a collaboration between the market and Stellenbosch wine estate, Simonsig.

This bubbly bar finds itself in good company, as it joins the likes of Ryan Boon Meats, Deluxe Coffeworks, Juice, Mano’s Bakery, The Restaurant, Olive or Twist, and For the Love of Yummyness.

Parlez-Vous Francais?

Quaffers can expect barrel-loads of Simonsig Kaapse Vonkel, as well as Billecart-Salmon French Champagne. And there’ll also be a Strictly Stellenbosch winelist for those who prefer something less bubbly.

Foodie feast

The freshest Saldanha Bay oysters (cultivated the traditional way) come courtesy of The Mussel Monger. Served with a sliver of lemon and a dash of Tabasco, the oysters cost R15 (for one) or R90 (for six).

Black mussels, in a deliciously saucy leek, white wine, cream and lemon combo, are also on the menu, served with a mini vetkoek, a truly SA (tr)eat.

There’s no such thing as too much champagne (or too many oysters)!

Opening times Monday – Saturday, 11am – 12pm

    Went there this past weekend, it was a lovely experience. Had delicious mussles and bubby. Definitely worth trying. Even if you don’t eat oysters or mussles there are more options that are also just as great.
