Culinary Offerings at Hazendal
Babushka Deli

An “urban farmhouse kitchen” is probably the best way to describe Babushka Deli. The delicatessen fuses South Africa’s predilection for home cooking with nourishing Russian treats, inspired by the cooking traditions of babushkas (Russian grandmothers). Using high quality locally produced ingredients from suppliers who wholeheartedly embrace organic and sustainable farming principles, the Babushka Deli makes a spontaneous or planned visit to Hazendal one that satisfies an appetite for authentic, freshly baked goods with an emphasis on healthy eating.

The deli’s sit-down menu includes lighter meals, sandwiches and modern bistro style food, which can be enjoyed with the estate’s wines, fresh juices and local craft drinks. There is a menu for the younger gourmands which is approved by moms and even the fussiest small palate.

The deli’s shelves stock a bounty of products, many of which are made in Babushka’s kitchen, including pickles, preserves, relishes and oat and chia-seed mixes as well as interesting spice blends and rubs. There is also a tempting selection of premium deli items sourced from local and international suppliers and a collection of authentic Russian hand-crafted souvenirs.

When it comes to take-away items, the Babushka Deli makes a range of fresh and healthy salads and sandwiches plus a selection of custom made pastries that are a feast for the eyes and the taste buds. These pastries can be enjoyed at Hazendal or taken home in beautifully packaged gift cartons - ideal as a treat for someone special, or to add flavour to a home tea party or dinner.

Tuesday to Saturday: 08h00 - 17h00 (pastries and treats available until 17h00) Sunday: 08h00 - 15h30. Please note that we are closed on Mondays, except during school holidays and on public holidays.

No bookings are required, but you are welcome to secure your table. Reservations for groups larger than 8 require a deposit.

Russian Tea Garden

High tea will never be the same after experiencing Hazendal’s Russian Tea Ceremony in Hazendal’s Russian Tea Garden. Spanning generations, Russian tea-drinking has become an integral part of the country’s culture, highlighting the principles of friendship and warm hospitality. During Hazendal’s Russian Tea Ceremony, a specially sourced and imported black Russian tea blend is served from a steaming Samovar (ornate Russian tea urn) and presented in traditional hand-painted porcelain tea sets from the Dulevo porcelain factory, one of the oldest and most famous porcelain producers in Russia. The tea ritual is a visually intriguing experience that breathes new life into age-old tea brewing customs. Little guests can enjoy a specially designed tea menu and show off their artistic talents with Russian-themed colouring-in pages. With each table donning a distinct table setting, and the garden’s relaxed atmosphere, Hazendal’s Russian Tea Ceremony is a culturally rich and exquisite experience for young and old.

Walk-in guests who have not pre-booked for the Russian Tea Ceremony, can enjoy the Garden Menu in the beautiful and tranquil garden.
