The Von Brakel Stoor is an authentic, historical farm stall, on a lone stand, along the Caledon / Napier route. With its original antique wooden shelving and floors, vintage tins and collectables lining the length of the 'Boere kitsch' interior, the space immediately transports one to the early 1900’s.
Stocked with products reminiscent of yesteryear, such as sousboontjies, slaphakskeentjies, tamatiesmoor, homemade ginger beer, rusks, preserves and owner Ounooi van Straaten’s legendary twice-proved white and brown breads, this is an experience of the ‘olde worlde’ Cape that we can truly recommend.
The Von Brakel Stoor offers delicious farm stall fare, including piping hot coffee and a selection of delicious breakfast and lunch dishes. Expect the unexpected! We’ve enjoyed their full English breakfasts (with the Von Brakel difference) and their delicious French toast with bacon. Remember to take a basket with you when you visit because all the lovely ‘tuisegbakte goed’ is too good to leave behind.
The Von Brakel Stoor also boasts a huge entertainment and functions area, beautifully decorated with antiques, so be sure to pop in there to grab an eyeful of the stunning pieces and collectables.
