Not up to Cooking?
Mosaic Cottages are next door to the 1892 Spookhuis which houses the Mosaic Lagoon Café, on a different part of the reserve than the Lagoon Lodge. The Spookhuis is one of the original area homesteads, and was restored by the Johnson Family in 2008. At an additional cost, food can be catered for your Mosaic Cottage – pre-order breakfast baskets, dinner dishes, and BBQ platters, or select a wine from our cellar. The Café offers lunch, cheese and meat platters, homemade baked goods, preserves, chutney, desserts and organic vegetables from our garden should you wish to dine there. You can enjoy gourmet picnics under milkwood trees on the edge of the Lagoon, or indoors around roaring fires if there is a chill in the air. We have a full bar and a collection of unique Jack Daniels.
