Giants Cup Cafe


    Finest quality ingredients, locally grown and organic.


    Stocking homemade treats, traditional African crafts and small souvenirs.


Sani Lodge is home to the Giant's Cup Café which is well known for wholesome, homemade goodness. Our policy is local procurement of South African foods, supporting local producers in our district as well as growing as many fruit and vegetables as we can in the summer months. This means that what you eat and drink in our restaurant directly supports all these producers and healthy motives. We also have our own small herd of Jersey cows, famous for their rich creamy milk.
