A word from Lars


“Here we go again, Summer Holidays (yes, for those of you in the Northern Hemisphere – it’s summer time in the Cape), Christmas and New Year. Another interesting year gone by and I am grateful that all our 2012 projects were successful. New plantings, new coffee shop, new coffee roastery, changed court yard and wine tasting, plus a more condensed and focused restaurant menu.
The unrest in the wine industry has also drawn more attention and appreciation to our vineyard team – most probably the only section of Buitenverwachting that never stands still and just functions so perfectly and efficiently. I would like to thank all our staff at Buitenverwachting and our guests and followers for the support we have received.
Wishing you all a blessed season and a happy New Year”.

Coffee BloC


The new and trendy Coffee BloC supplies the most delicious of coffees and cakes! Baked daily by Edgar’s Kitchen the pastries are quite the best around.
As for the coffee… freshly ground by expert Warren in the newly built House of Coffees a stone’s throw from Coffee BloC there is probably not a better blend around.
Coffee Connoisseur Lars has put his stamp on the selection and he really knows his coffees.
The welcome from the two charming hostesses is hospitable and knowledgeable and the array of tasty deli items on view is tempting and so easy to take home.
An experience to delight awaits!
