Oumeul Bakkery

Whenever we have Coffee Club we always have a good time. And it seems that that's evident to other peeps too. We've got some new members!

Our first outing of 2013 was to Oumeul Bakkery. This little bakery is the sister to the original Oumeul in Riviersonderend, which I'm told is somewhere on the N2. I cannot say I've been myself. Apparently they must have a massive following as their "tagline" is all about their famous pies.

As it was breakfast time we settled for our usual round of lattes and some more appropriate breakfast treats. Although I don't really see anything wrong with eating pies for breakfast ;)

Apart from the pies, there is a small but good breakfast menu. For lunch there are a range of salads and sandwiches which all sound devine. And then of course there are the pies. I spotted a board with the usual chicken, steak and all that. But there are some divine-sounding ones I *need* to try like venison and bobotie. Luckily it's around the corner from my new office so I foresee many lunch-time trips.

As it's so close I may have already sampled one or two of their pastries. They sell mini tartlets, milktarts, pasties and cakes. I happen to know that the pecan pie can change lives.

And then if you're keen to pick up some home made produce, there is a shelf dedicated to Brenda's products. If you've ever had the balsamic glaze then you understand how amazing these babies are.

Oumeul Bakkery is open Monday to Saturday so you can almost always get your pie fix. Weekdays they start their thang at 06h30 and on Saturday at 07h00.
