    What a great surprise! We stopped for a coffee and then we saw the menu. I must admit that the roosterkoeke was even better as the famous Nanaga-roosterkoeke! The filling was absolutely delicious and this is true value for money. We could not finish these gigantic roosterkoeke and we could share it with children begging for something to eat. Do yourself a favor and stop at this restaurant on your way to Cape Town, they will definitely have your favourite filling!

    Delicious roosterkoek and a wonderful stop to stretch legs on the N2 bound for Cape Town/George. Their toasties and tjippies are delicious too. A great place to get little one’s free in a safe kids play area, with some goats too. Well equipped shop with many snacks and fresh fruits.

    To be honest I had a wonderful experience. My food was ready extremely fast and the queue was helped fast. I absolutely loved the bacon and egg roosterkoek for my breakfast on the road and the staff is extremely nice. There is a vast option of what type if roosterkoek to eat so don't worry if someone in the family won't want to eat something I bet there is something for them. Coffee was good and warm, going great with the roosterkoek.

    I always stop here for roosterkoek but this time I was rather disappointed. There was enough bacon but it was tasteless (not salty enough) and the roosterkoek was a little raw inside still. I enjoy their Chai latte

    This is a must stop when traveling on the N2 past Buffelsjags. Food is always amazing with my steak, cheese and mushroom roosterkoek made exactly how I liked it. On the way back on our road trip we will stop there again.

    Awesome stop! Full service gas station. It was a wonderful restaurant, gift shop, little “farm”, and playground. The sandwiches and roosterkoeke! Highly recommend the steak and eggs with pepper sauce and ham and cheese sandwich.

    One of the prettiest toilets in SA. Well done to the cleaners who decorate the ladies with beautiful flowers every day. Take away section is very efficient. Food is good. Staff very friendly. Picnic area is clean, child and dog friendly. Lovely big trees for shade. We'll done everyone.

    The roosterkoeken from Oude Post are definitly one of the main things that I miss from my trip to South Africa. 🤤😋😍

    Lovely stop by the BP. They’re known for their roostekoek. You can see the ladies braaing them fresh just outside. Lovely seating area outside.

    My favourite food stop on the road. Roosterkoek heaven. Portions are huge and loads of fillings to choose from. Padkos!

  • 3/5 Nelis V. 1 year ago on Google
    While it is a really lovely and welcome stop, especially if you have dogs (there is ample place for them to rùn around, and kids too for that matter), I was really annoyed with 2 things - first, there is not enough people to service your orders. The queues are so long that I have never been able to buy their famous roosterkoek, been there 3 times before and always just turned around when seeing the queues. Secondly, and this is my main gripe - the convenience store is utterly ridiculous with their prices - it borders on daylight robbery to say the least! R31 for a big packets of chips? No thank you, next time I will just drive past.

    31 October 2022 The Eats (overall several days, as we were in the area twice): Americano Latte Plain Roosterkoeke Cheese and Tomato Roosterkoek Egg and Bacon Roosterkoek Sloppy Joe Roosterkoek (savoury mince and cheese) Cheese Toastie Pros: Loads of options Good prices The roosterkoeke are huge and delicious. They are good the day after buying as well. We took them on hikes the next day Suggestion: Can do with a couple more veggie options, like curry lentil, roasted veggies and/or spinach and feta

    What a lovely stop over on our way to Oudtshoorn. Surely the best roosterkoek I've tasted in a long time. Friendly staff and a relaxing atmosphere. Will definitely visit again

    Best takeaway roosterbrood I've ever had, and the Milk&Sugar coffee & cinammon milkshake is exellent.

    We always stop somewhere else when traveling through the area but based on Google Maps images posted by other visitors, decided to stop here for a change. OMW, not sure when the new bistro opened but should have stopped here a long time ago already. They had the Beef burger roosterkoek on special and decided to try that since we just finished a hike. Added some extra cheese and had the best damn lunch money could buy. This is authentic food made by authentic people. I’m sorry to the ‘other’ place but I’m already planning my next trip back to the bistro.
