Old Gaol

The Old Gaol is situated opposite the Dutch Reformed Church on the edge of the Old Quarter. Roosterkoek and Melktert are some of the traditional foods they serve.


This coffee shop/restaurant is in a beautiful setting with seating indoors or under the trees on a wooden deck. In the backyard they have tables next to a jungle gym. The Old Gaol is bicycle friendly and this is a good place to get together for a coffee after a bicycle ride.
