Big Dog brings the café scene to Franschhoek with the focus being on good coffee and interesting menu options and specials, all set back in a laid-back café environment.
Situated on the main road just before you reach Franschhoek, the café also has the well-known Terbodore coffee roastery beside it, where the intoxicating aromas of freshly roasted coffee beans can be appreciated.
Michael and Alrishka Macaskill of Terbodore Coffee Roasters visited California, New York, Oregon and Washington in 2016 and soaked up the coffee and café Stateside, gaining inspiration along the way. Brimming with ideas for the menu and design features, they came back and opened Big Dog.
With a light and airy space with wood and exposed brick dominating, every area has its own special feel to it. Besides the numerous four-seater tables, there’s contemporary bar stools at the bar counter, a large communal-style table, private nook with a garden view or lovely brown leather sofas in a lounge arrangement in the store. There’s a deck that opens out onto a beautiful, tranquil garden as well.
