Babushka Deli

Freshly made meals. Food on the move. Gifts.


An “urban farmhouse kitchen” is probably the best way to describe Babushka Deli. The delicatessen fuses South Africa’s predilection for home cooking with nourishing Russian treats, inspired by the cooking traditions of babushkas (Russian grandmothers). Using high quality locally produced ingredients from suppliers who wholeheartedly embrace organic and sustainable farming principles, the Babushka Deli makes a spontaneous or planned visit to Hazendal one that satisfies an appetite for authentic, freshly baked goods with an emphasis on healthy eating.

The deli’s sit-down menu includes lighter meals, sandwiches and modern bistro style food, which can be enjoyed with the estate’s wines, fresh juices and local craft drinks. There is a menu for the younger gourmands which is approved by moms and even the fussiest small palate. Our mouthwatering and eye-catching selection of pastries and cakes is a delectable treat.

The deli’s shelves stock a bounty of products, many of which are made in Babushka’s kitchen, including pickles, preserves, relishes and oat and chia-seed mixes as well as interesting spice blends and rubs. There is also a tempting selection of premium deli items sourced from local and international suppliers and a collection of authentic Russian hand-crafted souvenirs.
