We bring people together around good food.

Delivering fresh food and excellent customer service to
San Antonio since 1988.

Our Humble Roots

In 1988, only four years after leaving South Africa, husband and wife team Andre and Cheryl Bezuidenhout began Picnikins—even though they had no food service experience whatsoever.

Andre was a builder by trade, and Cheryl a pianist and mother of two young boys. Forced to make a career change, the duo opened a deli with the idea of providing local professionals with a fresh, quick and affordable lunch that was easy to transport and eat.

They quickly gained a great reputation for the quality and freshness of the food and for the friendly service from "the sweetest people with the coolest accents."

Our Humble Roots

Fast Forward: Picnikins Today

Our excellent customer service has never failed us. After the success we had with our deli, we decided to offer catering and delivery services, and those garnered the same response.
We now have two indoor/outdoor locations in San Antonio called Picnikins Patio Cafe where you can dine-in or take-out. We are also proud to offer everyday catering for lunch.

Special Events Catering

Outside of the lunch services that Picnikins offers, we’ve also been catering special events for some time. We’ve decided to separate these services from our current lunch offerings in an effort to elevate the experience for our customers.

29 Degrees Catering still emphasizes all of the great virtues we hold near and dear, and we can cater special events at your location, or we can host at one of Picnikins Patio Cafes.

The name, 29 Degrees Catering, comes from the fun fact that San Antonio and our native South Africa both fall on 29 degrees north and south latitude, respectively.

“ Fan-freakin-tastic”

My wife loved her sandwich, and I loved the Italian sandwich. Their house made chips are awesome and the sweet potato fries are good.
