Cafe Roux opened in the Noordhoek Farm Village a few months ago. I can tell you with confidence that I am not a regular at the Noordhoek Farm Village. In fact I have only been a couple of times when visiting my grandparents who live nearby.
Anyway, a couple of weeks ago, due to an elaborate surprise involving a friend from London I arranged to have breakfast there. It was a beautiful day, so that would have contributed heavily to the experience as we were sitting in the very large alfresco section. 3 of us had the breakfast ciabatta which was en enormous portion of eggs, bacon, sausage, etc. One person had Eggs Benedict or something like that. The food was very good. Service was fine.
I had such a nice time I went and collected my grandparents and took them there for lunch! Gramps had the linefish and Gran had the battered and fried calamari (why was the calamari battered? Because it just wouldn’t listen!!). The food was very good again. The service this time was excellent because my grandfather was struggling to eat the crunchy veggies so they brought him a little veggie bake they made for him with butternut and mash potato etc. They were happy to help and didn’t charge extra for the veggie bake. Well done team.
I would say, if you live in the area you should be having breakfast there whenever the sun is shining, and if you don’t live in the area it’s actually a great little jaunt.
