Our Food

The key ingredient to the success of Anja’s Tea Garden has always been a hearty measure of personal attention.  This applies particularly to everything on the menu – all our food is home-cooked and our cakes home-baked.

We offer gluten-free (including gluten-free cakes) and Banting-friendly options.


Many guests have returned time and again for favourites like the White Chocolate Baked Cheesecake with Caramel Sauce, the melt-in-the-mouth Chocolate cake, Apple Pie with Almonds or the Anja’s renowned Lemon Meringue. A review by Food24 referred to this tart treat as one of the best in the country, calling it “decadent and especially noteworthy”.

Light lunches

The other speciality on the menu at Anja’s is her light lunches. On weekdays and Saturdays, the variety to choose from is sure to satisfy most appetites. From quiche and salad, delicious oven-baked croissants filled with black forest ham, creamy mushroom sauce and mozzarella to homemade burgers, lasagne and much more. View the menu here.

On Sundays, Anja’s offers a Sunday lunch, just like Ouma used to make it with roast lamb, mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables and crisp salads. Contact us for details or to book a table.


 We serve a variety of teas and probably the best cappuccino in the East of Pretoria. We have unique cold drink offerings on the menu, including our Rooibos and Strawberry Iced Tea, Ginger Beer and Lemonade – all home-made. Or try our Belgian Choc Hot chocolate or our famous milkshakes. View the menu here.


Anja’s has recently obtained a liquor license and now stocks a selection of boutique wines, champagne, craft beers. We make special Sangria by the jug.
