the restaurant

Artists Charl and Andrea Fourie welcome you to the Bohemian Groove Café in Kaapsche Hoop, where home cooked food, great friends and creative art meet! The Restaurant offers a feast to the senses, with delicious food, vibey music, creative people and beautiful interiors. The gallery restaurant opened its doors in April 2011, and moved to the current new venue at the entrance of the village in May 2014. Both Charl and Andrea studied Art at the Pretoria Technicon, and opened the funky Zeederberg Coach House Restaurant in Sabie in 1995. After a 10 year stint in Hazyview in the hospitality trade and metal furniture factory workshops, they decided to settle in the sleepy village of Kaapsehoop.
The restaurant is an artpiece in itself, with fine art displayed on the walls, handmade furniture and lightfittings created by Charl. Charl’s blacksmith workshop creates custom design furniture, light fittings or objects d’art per client’s specifications – chat to Charl about this, he loves a design challenge!

the chef

Andrea is the creative chef in the kitchen, and all salads and herbs are picked from the vegetable garden on the premises. The menu consists of local ingredients, including fresh and smoked trout, salads and herbs, grills, freshly baked waffles, freshly brewed coffee and cocktails. Other specialities include our famous homemade chicken liver pate, lamb curry, burgers, prego and grills. We also cater for Vegetarians and Banters, and serve a kickass espresso with our homemade lemon meringue pie or variety of waffles. Sip a cocktail on our verandah with a view over the mountains and the wild horses, or warm up in our misty weather with some homemade gluhwein and soup in front of our cosy coalstoves.

live music

Bohemian Groove Cafe has been a supporter of the South African Arts and Live Music since its opening day, and live music performances are a regular item on the weekly menu. Musicians – local and from afar - perform every Sunday lunch, from 12h00 – 15h00. On long weekends, public holidays or special functions we have occasional live music too. We charge a cover fee per person when there is a live performance, which gets added to your bill. The total amount of the cover charge gets given to the musicians, so the establishment does not gain from your generous support. Before you decline to pay the cover charge please take into consideration that most of the musicians perform to earn their daily bread, at the cost of one beer your support in paying the cover charge will be greatly appreciated. They spend hours and hours rehearsing and improving their passion, and the equipment does not come cheap either! So please support the local musicians and artists – they form an integral part of our society. Our cover charge changes per event, but we always try to keep it as affordable as possible for you to enjoy!
