We at ‘Ostrich and the Egg’ are proud to bring you our take on South African street eats and most famously, our iconic koeksister doughnuts.
Our aim is to share the South African kitchen experience with you along with its abundance of spices, humble hearty food and a variety of drinks.
We make almost everything from scratch with our own hands in our kitchen and we’re always adding South African specials.
Our kitchen & bar is an easy going, casual dining experience, filled with good vibes and South African nutty humour.
So come on in, sit down and relax with us in our home.
