Welcome to The Sweaty Dutchman

A Bistro and coffee shop Situated right in the heart of Kareedouw in the Eastern Cape

The Sweaty Dutchman is the perfect stop whether it is the beginning or the end of your journey on the famous Cape Route 62 that gives you an alternative scenic route from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth.


The Eastern part of Cape Route 62 , the "Langkloof", is home to one of the largest deciduous fruit growing areas in the country. With its orchards and picturesque settings the route makes for a scenic and pleasurable drive.


If you want something decadent and treat your taste buds, then our ‘Dutch Pancakes’ will provide a unique experience. The in-house recipe, developed by the Sweaty Dutchman himself, provides for a texture that is fluffy and moist, with a golden and crispy edge.


It is always great to meet new travellers of Cape Route 62 and reacquaint with old friends. Take the time to stretch your legs and give the children a break from the back seat and pop in for a minute or two - you might just stay a little while longer.
