Prior to owning this shop, which reopened on 1 September 2020, Chrisna used to own Mufasa in Wangara. Since taking over the Village Hut Café, she’s revamped the retail shop as well as the café menu which includes some absolutely divine cakes and treats.

In the few short months she’s been running the shop, there have been some subtle yet effective changes. All the goods in the coffee shop are now homemade, and the quality is divine.

There’s still the classic South African desserts on the menu, like koeksusters, peppermint crisp tart and milk tart, but they’ve also got more exotic ever-changing treats like Toblerone chocolate cake and a luscious caramel milk tart.

The menu also includes breakfast and lunch items, with some South African favourites like chicken a la king, bobotie pie, and classic toasted sandwiches and handmade pies.

It’s not all heavy meals though, there is a great selection of lighter meals like quiche, frittata, and muffins if you fancy something a little lighter.
