Calendar 2021

 

We know little about the future. So with reservation for unforeseen circumstances that may affect our opening hours on a short notice, we therefore present this year's plans rather roughly. A warm welcome!

Winter Café

We long to see you again, and we long for spring and summer! So much that we are planning a Winter Café during the weeks 8 to 12. But only on days when it's lovely in the sun, and our log fires burning. We will not place any newspaper ads. Instead, we will post details on opening days & hours in the same week in Facebook and Instagram, @tasteofafricahedesunda, 0291-61025, 070-2642109

We carefully follow FHM's temporary rules and regulations applied to businesses serving food, and to shops. Maximum 3 visitors are therefore allowed into the shop. The minimum social distance is 2 metres (shop) and 1 metre in between tables at the Café. In the Café, we will serve your orders at the table as usual. Maximum 4 persons are allowed to be seated at the same table. During Baobab Kitchen cookings, your social distance will be 2 meters, while working in small groups (2-4 in each), taking turns cooking over the fire. You will be seated at many smaller tables (2-4 per table). More info on Baobab Kitchen will follow a little closer to spring! We care about you! Ĺsa & Nolan

27-28 February & March week 8 to week 12
Winter Café & shop open from 11 to 16 Saturday & Sunday, perhaps some more days during the school holiday in week 9. We can only decide that same week if and when we will be open - it all depends on the weather and snow conditions! Thanks for understanding! Please check our posts on Facebook and Instagram, @tasteofafricahedesunda, 0291-61025, 070-2642109.
