Sani Lodge is home to the Giant’s Cup Café well known for wholesome home-made goodness

The Giants Cup Cafe, Restaurant and Farm Stall is on site open daily from 0730 hours to 2000 hours, a mere 50 metres from Sani Lodge Backpackers, providing all meals, cappuccinos made from Fair Trade organic coffee beans, teas and homemade cakes. A curio shop/farm stall is part of the set up as are local art works on display and a greenhouse selling indigenous plants. Dinner is available 7 days a week. As devotees of the great John  Seymour’s philosophy of self sufficiency as laid out in his classic book “The Complete Guide to Self-sufficiency”, we aim to provide home cooked meals with the use of as many home produced products as possible.  We aim to use the best ingredients if we do not produce them ourselves. Whilst Sani Lodge does have a fully equipped self- catering kitchen, why not enjoy meals at The Giants Cup!
