Locally sourced, farm to plate ...

Are you a pizza-loving, bike-trailing, bird-watching, forest-hiking, blue-sky-appreciating, polo-enjoying, latté-drinking kind of person? If you are, then you’ll be excited to visit The Spot Bistro, recently opened at The Old Mushroom Farm.

Open for Brunch, Lunch and Dinner with a fine selection of fresh wood oven food options. The Spot delivers an array of dining selections, from a power brunch, to after work drinks* and fun family dinners. It is designed to be a social family and pet friendly bistro, with an open kitchen, merging indoor and outdoor spaces.

The Spot strips away the rigid formalities of dining while focusing on quality of food and friendly service in a relaxed casual ambience, paralleling the true essence of its location.

Farm to plate; The Bistro draws inspiration from the outdoor scenes in the Karkloof Valley by utilizing rustic cooking with wood fire and sustainable ingredients. The Midlands boasts incredible farmlands, thus The Spot prides itself in using locally sourced ingredients to ensure fresh, nutrient packed wood oven food.

We believe the best moments in life happen face to face, so we created The Spot. A spot for people to come together in a comfortable environment to connect. 

*** PS: The Spot is not licenced so please bring your own alcoholic beverages!
