Dine amongst the trees with a glorious view of Swellendam's breathtaking Langeberg mountains at Old Gaol on Church Square.

The Old Gaol Coffee shop has gained an ever-widening reputation for its traditional foods (originally ‘Melktert’ baked in a copper pan and ’Roosterkoek’ baked over the coals), so the menu has grown to include authentic dishes like old-fashioned chicken pie, bobotie & sambals, waterblommetjie or tomato bredie, Cape curries and the ever-popular lamb shanks or oxtail.

All typical Daily Specials that reflect the love of great food and the commitment of this proud and spirited team.


Monday - Sunday, 08:30 - 17:00
