Ride In Cafe opened its doors in 2013, with one key aim: to become the heart and soul of the cycling community in Stellenbosch. A family-run business, nestled in the Jonkershoek Valley, Ride In Cafe is surrounded by beautiful, landscaped gardens and mountains and serves as a gateway to kilometers of purpose mountain bike trails in the breathtaking Jonkershoek nature reserve, just a few kilometers up the road. For cyclists and non-cyclists alike, we offer the chance to unwind and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the natural landscape, in a relaxed, homely setting.
Offering a rustic alternative to fancy wine farm dining, Ride In Cafe strives to consistently deliver delicious, freshly made, home-style breakfasts and lunches, as well as mouth-watering pastries and cakes to satisfy the sweetest tooth! The cafe is also a great spot to sample locally brewed craft beers and boutique wine after a hard day in the saddle (or an easy day on the sidelines!).
As a family-friendly venue, Ride In Cafe has a lower grass section that is dedicated to diners with young children, offering amenities such as a mini pump track (bring your own bikes), jungle gym, sandpit and swings.
Four-legged friends are also welcome, but we do ask for owners to be respectful of other customers and to bring a leash.

Have you tried our specialty coffee, the Ride In Roast?
At Ride In, we are so passionate about coffee that we decided to roast our own Ride In Roast! Our pure Arabica blend of coffee has been tried tested and tweaked over the last year and is made up of a four-bean cappuccino blend with a medium specialty roast.
You can drink it every day in the coffee shop or buy it to take home in both 250g and 1kg bags.
The kids play area at Ride In Cafe is a highlight for our guests with young children, for obvious reasons. Loads of open space, mini-pump track, jungle gyms, swings and sandpit, our kids play area keeps little ones entertained for hours, leaving Mum and Dad to enjoy their meal without feeling the need to keep children at arms-length or noise levels down.
Our specially designed children’s menu offers food that your kids will love to eat and a wide range of cool drinks and fresh fruit are also available.
