Located in the Noordhoek Farm Village Cellars you will find the beloved Foodbarn Bakery and Deli. It’s a delicatessen where locals, tourists and passers-by can stop for daily necessities as well as products that excite and inspire. Whether you are looking for a fresh baked croissant, daily newspaper, a 'home-cooked' meal for lunch or dinner, a delicious cake, fresh fruit and vegetables, a bottle of wine, or a delicious pie to eat-on-the-go... the Foodbarn Deli is the place to get it.At night the deli transforms into a vibey Tapas restaurant with the same atmosphere that has made the Foodbarn Deli so popular.
The Deli is family friendly and open plan – creating a rustic, authentic, unostentatious feeling which flows with the philosophy of Franck and Pete that food should be natural, healthy and delicious. The Deli is a remarkable store that pays tribute to that and has been redefined to service people who adore food and care about their environment. Coffee beans are sourced from 'Bean there' and they only choose beans from African countries for their delicious coffee. Locals call this a coffee hot spot.
2010 & 2011 Winner of Eat In SA Produce Awards: Best Bakery
It’s unsurprising that the Foodbarn Bakery has captured the award! The Bakers (Tim and Clarence) arrive at 3am to start baking breads and pastries for the day so it’s no wonder that their range of breads is so famous! Breads are made using high-quality, locally produced premium stone ground flour (from Eureka Mills) which is naturally rich in fibre, wholesome and nutritious... no additives, preservatives or chemicals! These are available from 8:00am every day! At the deli, other freshly baked goods stock the shelves: cakes, pies, jams, jellies, biscuits, muffins, pastries, breads.
The Deli also sells local wines, local cheeses and a few convenience items. The food is produced using finest quality locally produced products they can find: "We try to make everything ourselves, if possible. Everything is local, recycled (check out the awesome shelves) and environmentally friendly. It’s about knowing your environment. Where we can, we try to make it organic."
For lunch you can order sandwiches, salads, or daily creations from the specials board. The emphasis is on home-made deliciousness with a Franck Dangereux twist. "It is what we like to eat," says Pete. People enjoy coming here, because all they have to do is sit down and enjoy. Another great feature is the Barn Bookshop which has been running for five years. All the books are second hand and many locals use the bookshop as a meeting place and most 'recycle' their books through the bookshop.
