River Cafe is one of the newest additions to the beautiful village of Franschhoek. With a focus on keeping it real and bringing back to the village, a little bit of light heartedness. River Cafe serves sumptuous full plate dishes made with fresh local ingredients & is all about real food, paired with relaxed easy eating, delivered in a beautiful setting.
We serve early morning breakfasts with Big Dog coffee, freshly baked pastries & seasonal juices, our late lunches can be perfectly paired with a local Franschhoek wine or one of our original cocktails, alternatively, linger longer & spend time sharing our South African inspired platters or a platter of fresh oysters and watch the village change it’s colours as the sun sets. River Cafe is also the home of the largest selection of genuine Italian inspired gelato in the village. Experience Franschhoek like a local, no fuss, no frills just really good food, hunger busting portions & real value prepared & presented with love.
