Njam Eatery

Next time you’re seeking a freshly baked treat in Linden, pop into bistro and pastry shop Njam Eatery on the corner of 3rd and 6th Street. This cozy bistro with natural light and reclaimed wooden floors is a creation by Toerie van der Merwe – co-owner of Middle Eastern restaurant Ba-Pita in Norwood.

The menu has a small selection of breakfast and bistro meals with hints of Afrikaans comfort food like roosterkoek, tomato smoor and boerewors, all made from fresh local produce in the area. Check out the weekend specials on the black board outside – for example every Friday Toerie brings in fresh mussels from Saldanha Bay. 

Everything from tomato jam to beef jus to brownies are made in-house, and the pastry selection changes daily based on what the chef feels like making that morning. On the day we visited, there were peppermint fudge chocolate milkbuns, white chocolate blondies, and nostalgia-inducing rice krispie treats.

If you’re planning a weekend visit, make sure to book ahead because they’re often fully booked.
