Babushka Deli- Al-fresco dining for the whole family!
The Babushka Deli pays homage to the babushka (‘grandmother’, in Russian); a much-loved symbol of hospitality, generosity and delicious cooking. You’ll find all three at the Babushka Deli, where the extensive menu ranges from scrumptious all-day breakfasts to crisp salads and lunch plates inspired by the seasons and the finest local organic produce.
Take a seat indoors, or at one of the al fresco tables offering fresh air and panoramic views across this historic estate.
The extensive menu by Executive Chef Michelle Theron includes an array of seasonal dishes, from healthy breakfasts to gourmet lunches, alongside contemporary interpretations of classic Russian dishes. Fresh breads and artisan pastries are baked on-site daily, to enjoy in the deli or take away.
The dedicated Kids’ Menu offers a host of healthy – and tasty – options, with wide lawns and a secure toddler playground making Babushka Deli the perfect destination for families.
The elegant Babushka Deli Shop offers a wide range of handcrafted products, from delicious seasonal preserves to imported Russian souvenirs.
The Deli counter displays a mouth-watering array of freshly baked goods, including assorted pastries, artisan breads and Russian delicacies. Look out for our famous Black Baguette, as well as the delectable Apple Sharlotka and signature Russian Honey Cake.
Picnics can be enjoyed on the spacious shaded lawns, at one of our pre-booked picnic areas situated in the gardens, or alongside the lush wetlands. With streams to splash in, outdoor sculptures to explore and gardens to discover, the Babushka Picnics are ideal for families and friends to spend the day relaxing on one of the Cape’s oldest wine estates.
Russian Tea Ceremony – A time-honoured ritual …
Hosted in the elegant Avant-Garde space, where hand-painted murals and crystal chandeliers evoke the grandeur of Russian nobility, Hazendal’s unique Russian Tea Ceremony celebrates the central role tea has played in Russian society since 1638.
Spanning generations, Russian tea drinking is an integral part of Russia’s culture, highlighting the values of friendship and hospitality. At Hazendal’s tea room we celebrate these values, with a ceremony centered around a steaming samovar (a traditional Russian tea urn), a black tea brew that is especially sourced for Hazendal and some delicious Russian sweet and savoury delights. Join us to experience a taste of Russia. Best assured of a radostnoye vremya (a joyful time)
The Russian Tea Ceremony is presented Tuesday to Sunday: 10:00 – 17:00 (last booking at 15:00)
Gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan menus are available. Please specify your preferred menu when making your booking.
Bookings are essential and require a minimum of 24 hours’ notice. Full pre-payment is required to secure the booking.
A memorable experience:
The Russian Tea Ceremony is a culturally rich and exquisite experience for larger groups. The Ceremony is particularly popular for bridal showers parties, birthday celebrations or a special treat shared with friends and family. Pair the Russian Tea ceremony with a bottle of the Estate’s Méthode Cap Classique or opt for the Full Kremlin experience complete with Russian blini and authentic black caviar.
Pivnushka Beer Garden
The Pivnushka Beer Garden is our contemporary South African expression of a traditional European beer garden. Set against the beautiful backdrop of the Bottelary Hills, Pivnushka’s menu of flame-grilled fare, craft beer and Hazendal wines offers the perfect destination for al fresco family-friendly dining in the Cape winelands.
Alongside Pivnushka’s menu of shareable plates, pizzas and platters, diners can indulge in an exciting range of local craft beers, as well as Hazendal’s premium wines and vodkas.
