Desert Rose Farm Stall – A great destination for country escapes

Desert Rose Farm Stall

Established by owner, Sonia van Niekerk, the Desert Rose Farm Stall is a refreshing oasis on the N7, between Moorreesburg and Piketberg, just 60km outside of Cape Town.

Combining a farm stall, restaurant and gift shop, it has become a popular spot for long distance travelers in need of a leg-stretch and tea break as well as Capetonians wanting to get out of the city on an afternoon in search of fresh produce and the country air.

Awaiting them is a choice of scrumptious sandwiches, quiches and delectable homemade burgers. Between meals, you can explore the gift shop, which is packed with handmade treasures and traditional treats.

On a hot summer’s day, you can enjoy a fruity ice tea on the veranda while the kids explore the outdoors and climb the jungle gym. Alternatively, you can indulge in a creamy cappuccino and freshly-baked treats on those cooler days.

For the collector, the Desert Rose Farm Stall has a range of homemade sauces, jams, traditional spices and biltong on offer.

Health conscious visitors also enjoy wholesome options on the menu like their Banting burger and fresh mix of salads.

If you are planning a celebration occasion, the Desert Rose also offers picture-perfect backdrop for birthdays, stork parties, kitchen teas, work and year-end functions.

Whether it’s a sit-down gathering or relaxed outdoor event, the Desert Rose is a great destination for country escapes.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
