The Millstone Farm Stall & Cafe at the Oude Molen Eco Village in Pinelands is located just 12 minutes from Cape Town's city centre and, affectionately known as 'Millstone', this family restaurant is for children with children.

Set in a quaint, outdoor, barnyard environment, it's completely relaxing sitting outside drinking a coffee or eating one of their All Day Breakfasts or healthy lunches. There's lots to keep busy children entertained including a spacious tree house, dolls house, swing set and the Oude Molen Eco Village offers horse riding just a stroll away from the Millstone. The kitchen is located in a 17th century house and the village was part of the Falkenberg hospital for mentally ill people before Apartheid. Fast forward to the present and the area is full to the brim with interesting characters.

We went there for a family brunch over the weekend and as usual the service was great, honestly they have the friendliest staff in all of Cape Town. And The food was so good! I highly recommend the BLT!

Sophie was completely in awe of the chickens, she kept making "woof" sounds, probably thought they were some sort of strange dog haha!

Chickens are everywhere, but they're friendly 
We stumbled onto the Millstone Farmstall while looking for a venue for Sophie's 1st birthday, we've since booked it. I am so excited. The owner, Carla is very friendly and welcoming and their rates are reasonable. They happily allow a birthday cake and party packs and their catering menu is well priced and sound scrumptious. If you're looking for an outdoor birthday party venue, look no further!

Regan & Dani so chuffed with me for taking pictures of them... obviously
I think mothers all over Cape Town shed a tear or two when The Barnyard burnt down, it was the perfect place for play dates and child friendly get togethers, plus good coffee. I think Millstone has more than filled that gap.
