Cafe’ Picnics & Wine! A Stanford Retreat

Cafe' - Picnics - Stanford Retreat

The 1892 Spookhuis Café – Open daily 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.    (Unless there is a private event. Please call us.)

The historic 1892 Spookhuis is one of Mosaic’s great attractions. Built of stacked limestone blocks in 1892, the Spookhuis is now home to our daytime cafe’ on the water, offering sandwiches, salads, freshly baked breads, muffins, pastries, desserts, cured meats, cheese platters, preserves, infused oils and organic vegetables. Gourmet picnic baskets can be ordered and enjoyed in the most divine setting under the milkwood trees on the lagoon, or around roaring fires inside if there is a chill in the air. Select award winning South African wines from our cellar and pair with cheese and mezze platters. Or indulge in delicious cakes and cappuccino to top off your meal.

Try your hand at a game of Boule while enjoying magnificent mountain views.  There is plenty of space for children to play. Our shop has a selection of quality africa made curios and jewlery, and candy for kids.

Homemade jams, chutney, Mosaic honey and baked goods are available to take home. Cafe items are available for self-catering cottage guests and breakfast baskets and dinner BBQ platters can be ordered with delicious marinated meats and fresh vegetables, ready for the braai fire.

What previously was the underground cheese cellar of the 1892 Spookhuis is now home to our cellar stocking prestige South African wine, with special attention to the Overberg Wine Region. Well known for the great wineries of Hamilton Russell and Bouchard Finlayson, the Overberg is home to an increasing number of award-winning wineries, such as Creation and Springfontein, our neighbor next door who has received world recognition as a pioneer in a unique limestone soil and cool climate terroir.

A wonderful day spent at Mosaic is to combine a gourmet lunch with a 4×4 quad bike ride through fynbos or with a massage treatment/manicure/pedicure at our Mosaic Rain Spa. We exclusively use natural handmade Rain Spa Products.
