Hans explains why they started the business and how the name of the coffee shop and bistro came about:
“We (Hans and Sonja) are ex-city people. Now almost two years in Kareedouw. This was not planned, nor was the indigenous nursery we started, nor was the coffee shop. But here we are with the ‘Sweaty Dutchman!”
“The name is a story in itself, but it has its origin in my coffee roasting days in Johannesburg. The Sweaty Dutchmen Is unique to this part of the world. Dutch run with European flavoured local dishes. Our customers say it’s cosy, wonderful and clean and all want to hear our story.”
