Owner and manager, Justin, recommends the hottest foodie destinations, though in high season ask him to pre-book a table for the most desirable restaurants a few weeks in advance. Breakfasts are a pleasurable start to the day, served on the verandah or in the lounge, with excellent coffee, freshly made smoothies, muesli and breads and hot breakfasts cooked to order.
A great location, plenty of Franschhoek charm and a warm welcome is guaranteed at Avondrood.
