to eat & drink
Franschhoek is the Culinary Capital of South Africa. With 8 of South Africa’s Top 100 restaurants located here you are perfectly placed for a journey of tantalising tastes and haute cuisine delights.
At Akademie Street it is our legendary breakfast that puts us on the local culinary map. Served daily on our leafy, vine covered patio, indulge in home roasted granola, freshly prepared smoothies, 15 different local seasonal fruits and an extensive menu of hot dishes – and if it isn’t on the menu? We’ll make it for you.
Given the extensive range of restaurants within walking distance, formal dining at Akademie Street is breakfast-only. However, our home is your home, from the free fully stocked minibar and coffee machine in your room, to the complimentary pastries and courtesy wines for you to indulge on in our bar and lounge - all at no extra charge – you only have to ask.
Every evening at sunset, drinks are served in our private courtyard, a sociable celebration of the Franschhoek good life. If you love a nightcap by the fire when you return from dinner, you’ll always find a warming selection of digestif and spirits waiting for you – or hot chocolate it you prefer.
