Welcome & Hallo

Koekela se deure het geopen in Junie 2010, ‘n droom het waar geword, ons het ‘n plek ontdek, die wonderlike juweel blink gevryf en ander mooi krale bygevoeg en so het ons Huiskafee ‘n kuier plek in die hart van Bloemfontein geword.

Koekela Huiskafee is nou 9 jaar aan die gang onder die leiding van myself, Gabriëlle en ons open steeds elkedag ons voordeur met dankbaarheid en geloof.

Ons is ‘n besigheid wat glo in die mooi, die kleurvol en die viering van die lewe!

We celebrate life by offering a great coffee, preparing good food for friends and families to share, hosting special functions and events, private parties, catering at your convenience and so much more.

We are thankful for each smile and each opportunity to offer something of great value to our loved guests. We would like every guest to become a Koekela friend, knowing they are special and unique.

Your ongoing support and loyalty is part of Koekela’s success story, you are just as important to us as it is for us to offer you only the best!

What people are saying about Koekela

Guests know best!

Mariana Swanepoel Nel

The quaint, retro, homely atmosphere of Koekela makes you feel at home straight away. This is not your usual restaurant, it is a place that has the quality of becoming one's second home. You have the choice of sitting outside in the garden, on the big veranda or inside in one of the most interestingly furnished diningrooms you have ever come across! The food is a real culinary explosion and their cappuchino, definitely the very best in Bloemfontein.

Marzel van Zyl

Great service. Great vibe. A must when in Bloemfontein

Pamela Gardner

The decor and menu regularly changes so the food never gets boring but is in fact delicious. The waitresses know their food and the service is excellent. My friends and I often go there for lunch during the week.
