Camilla’s Kitchen is a small café on the premises of African Relish Cooking School at 34 Church Street, Prince Albert. We have a cool verandah overlooking the garden and olive grove, and a shop stuffed with foodie delights.
Our dinner menu is based on sourcing ingredients as locally and sustainably as possible. Each evening we serve a set meal – plat du jour – show-casing the best produce available. Recipes focus on presenting the best meal possible from the ingredients we gather. We try to uphold the farm-to-fork ethos and cook everything from scratch.
In the kitchen is award-winning chef, former Woolies product-developer and cookbook author Camilla Comins. Her food writer and photographer husband Russel Wasserfall runs front-of-house.
We provide easy, country dining in a gentle, laid back style. We are licensed, so craft beer and a selection of wines picked from our favourite producers are on offer.
Cake and beverages are available at the shop each afternoon.
Open Tuesday to Saturday in season.
Dinner – 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Shop – 2:00 pm to 5:00pm
