is located at the heart of La Petite Dauphine Guest Farm, a working farm with a variety of vineyards, olive groves and fruit orchards.
Set among magnificent ancient oaks, against the backdrop of the dramatic Franschhoek Mountains, the spacious café terrace offers a memorable glimpse into country life, with ponds, vineyards and orchards only a few steps away. Housed in a converted 200-year old wine cellar, the café’s interior combines terracotta tiles, earthen walls and exposed wood rafters creating a charming country feel.
With its friendly and informal service, Café BonBon is legendary for its breakfasts and renowned for its coffee and cake. Lunchtime patrons look forward to a menu that showcases the abundant regional produce, and commits to seasonal ingredients, while always including much-requested classics. The carefully considered wine list features local wines, as well as a select few vineyards from further afield.
Only a step away is The Studio at La Petite Dauphine, an extraordinary location renowned for intimate and romantic weddings. All the spaces are rich in heritage and offer the perfect setting for that truly special occasion. Café BonBon, in tandem with La Petite Dauphine’s luxurious accommodation, equally offers enchanting sites for outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions. A perfect day under a flowering gum tree overlooking the pond, or under the 200 year-old oak trees, will also allow breath-taking views of the Franschhoek Mountain as a sensational scenic backdrop.
Adding to the charm of Café BonBon is Veruska’s Wine Bar. Inspired by the sophisticated streets and rustic warmth of the Franschhoek Valley, this cosy wine bar showcases a relaxed ambience, with subdued lighting and exposed brick walls lined with shelves of wines.
