Stellenbosch Favourite: De Vrije Burger

Local Hangout

Find some of the tastiest burgers and 'tjips' in town (with free soft-serve ice cream to boot!) at De Vrije Burger; one of Bertus Basson's infamous Stellenbosch establishments.

When talking about Stellenbosch and food, the name Bertus Basson often comes to mind. With five incredible establishments, Bertus Basson is no stranger to good food. Our favourite though is De Vrije Burger. In the heart of the Stellenbosch, this tiny blue slice of burger-heaven is the perfect place to enjoy a delicious lunch or dinner.

They have a simple menu offering their signature burger (100% Free-range beef, double cheese and homemade bun with all the trimmings), the tastiest hand-cut fries (we highly recommend the BBQ-spice dusting!), spiced onion fritters and an old school ‘Uitpakslaai’. You also get a free soft-serve ice cream with every burger purchased! With a small but impeccable wine list, this place is the perfect setting to enjoy good food, drinks and some of that classic charm that Stellenbosch has to offer.
