About 42 On Church

In the heart of the inland Western Cape town of Tulbagh, where the warm air settles at the foot of the surrounding mountains and the sunshine infuses every petal and bloom, is the rustic restaurant of 42 on Church. This has fast become a veritable institution amongst coffee lovers, who cannot get enough of the comforting roasted aromas, as well as those who are simply lusting after some delicious flavours.

42 on Church describes their food style as “grandma’s cooking that has been kicked up a notch.” This makes for a varied menu that is made up of simple ingredients, tasty twists and decadent treats to twist even the most disciplined of eater’s arms. Whether you just want a delicious cup of coffee or a hearty meal, 42 on Church is the perfect stop-over for moms on the go, families, friends and travellers.

Simplicity is the trick to the success of this restaurant. While the flavour combinations can be complex and intriguing, the ingredients are simple, devoid of junk and additives. The passion of the owners is infused into every dish, translating to meals that are created with liberal lashings of TLC, an unadulterated love for food and cooking. Many of the vegetables and herbs come directly out of the 42 on Church garden; which yields tomatoes, organic salad leaves, and plenty of other little veggies. In fact, the menu is flexible to accommodate what is growing in the garden at that particular time. So, salads, soups, garnishes and other items will change to include as much of the delicious fresh produce as possible.

The delicious sweets are baked daily to ensure that they are moreish and irresistible.

With this winning formula, 42 on Church remains one of Tulbagh’s treasures; a favourite amongst local caffeine-lovers and visitors from all over the world.
