Beautiful Breakfasts and Afternoon Teas

Breakfasts at The Conservatory, one of the finest restaurants in Swellendam, are made with LOVE as a gourmet 3-course set menu affair and our country hotel has developed quite a reputation for them.

Beginning with a continental buffet of cereals, Alison, the owner’s famous granola, natural yoghurt, seasonal fruit salad, artisanal meats & cheeses (with handmade cheese biscuits) and freshly baked (that morning) bread and scones or muffins.  Followed by Chef’s choice of one starter, usually a unique, interesting baked, poached or sautéed fruit or smoothie and one main.  These change daily, so if staying more than one evening, there is a surprise each morning.  Traditional bacon and eggs are always available for those that prefer.

Complimentary afternoon tea with home-baked savoury and sweet goodies is served in the bar/lounge area or on the front verandah overlooking the garden and tinkling fountain on sunny summer afternoons.  In winter, complimentary snack platters and a warming welcome drink are offered in front of a toasty fire on arrival.

Please do let us know if you have any preferences, specific dietary requirements and/or allergies.
