Stellenbosch Bistro restaurant
This one-of-a-kind, beautifully decorated country-style cum chic restaurant can be found in the middle of bustling Stellenbosch, but offers a cool and tranquil respite from the happenings outside. Here you can simply put your feet up, relax and take in the myriad of little details and touches that provide a feast for the eyes, ears and tastebuds.
Dipped Confections is owner-run and -managed and the passion and love that is put into everything, from the interior to the service to the food, is clearly evident.
A breakfast, lunch and 'sweet' menu is offered. Start your day with a decadent flapjack stack with bacon, caramelized banana and maple syrup, or a delightful omelette with roasted tomatoes, mushroom, cheddar and bacon bits.
Lunch offers traditional South African meals cooked the 'homemade' way. The bobotie and lamb pie are just two examples. The Dipped Homemade Burger proves to be popular and comprises a 100% beef patty, onion marmelade, fresh tomatoes and lettuce and is served with baked potato wedges.
A person can go on and on about the food, but there is also a great beverage list on offer. Wines, sparkling wines, beers, ciders and the old favourite, the Dom Pedro, are available.
The name implies sweetness and freshly baked cakes, scones, muffins and pastries are specialities. Baked by order cakes can also be arranged and promises to deliver a special flair to that wedding, birthday party or in fact any special occasion. Add homemade nougat, marshmallows, jams, spreads, biscuits, rusks, and chocolate and you will mimic a kid in a candy store.
This little gem is worth a visit. The restaurant is open from Monday to Friday from 8:30 am until 5 pm and on Saturdays from 8:30 am until 3 pm.
