Epicurean in the making, Luka van der Merwe is the son of owners, Karine Dequeker and Lloyd van der Merwe. One of their favourite ways to spend time together as a family is trying new restaurants, and eating out in general. From a young age Luke has accompanied his foodie parents to some of the very best restaurants, around the world.

Here are 14-year-old Luka’s thoughts on Schoon in Stellenbosch. Would Luka recommend it to our guests? The answer is an empathic, Yes!

“Schoon is an amazing bakery in Stellenbosch, which has really good pastries and bread, especially their sourdough bread, which is a really tasty. I recommend it to everyone who is not gluten intolerant!”
