The main restaurant is a well-known fine-dining spot for lunch and dinner, while the Delicatessen at the top of the estate is where the morning magic happens.

      Hi Chris,

      Michelle here from The Inside Guide. Thanks for your comment! We agree, Boschendal is one of the best wine farms in the Cape (see who else we rate, here: https://insideguide.co.za/cape-town/wine-farms/), just a pity that they don’t serve breakfast, which is why they’re not on this list.

Jams, fruit compote and granola as well as cold meats are also made on the farm. There is a huge play area for kids and on weekends there are horse rides. The deli stocks fantastic local produce and beautiful gifts. There is also a brewery, Stellies beer, as well as Acrobranching adventures and Ludwigs roses. You won’t be disappointed!
