Breakfast At Schoon de Companje

Now, here’s a place I’ve been wanting to go to for a very long time. Schoon de Companje is on the same street as my work and I feel like every time I walk to work in the mornings there are tables full of people eating what looks like the most incredible breakfasts. If you’ve…

Location, Location, Location

I may have found the most beautiful wine tasting setting. And I live in Stellenbosch, where literally every wine farm seems more beautiful than the last.  There’s always something about wine farms that sets them apart from the others, and this one has the best wine tasting setting I’ve seen in a long time. Hidden away on…

Last Thursdays | Stellenbosch

Last Thursdays in Stellenbosch have been around for a little while now, and I’ve never had the chance to spend to take part in it, until last week when I finally managed to make it! Last Thursdays are the Stellenbosch take on the First Thursdays program that takes place in a number of cities –…

The Parlotones | Tin Roof Stellenbosch

The Parlotones are arguably one of the most well known South African rock bands. If you live in SA, you know the name even if you haven’t listened to their music, and you’ve probably heard their songs on the radio at least once. They’ve been here a while, since 1998 actually (crazy) and they’re still…

The Food Lover’s Brunch

Food Lover’s Market. Not your obvious brunch spot really, but when your best friend suggests coffee somewhere, you say yes – despite your initial trepidation. Now, I’ve been to Food Lovers before, many times to shop and also to get their smoothies (made to order), because the Breakfast Smoothie is so good it hurts. I…

Small Spaces, Big Hearts

A gorgeous new little place has popped up in Stellenbosch recently. Now this is a sentence that most people living in Stellenbosch hear every other week, as there is always a new wine bar/coffee shop/pop up vintage clothing market appearing and it’s always interesting to find out what theme or famous chef makes it different…

The Blue Crane & The Butterfly

 Sometimes you find a place that when you walk inside, you feel like you belong there. There will be something about the atmosphere, and the decor, and the people that just makes you feel at home. It also probably won’t hurt if the coffee has been voted best in Stellenbosch, and the food is absolutely…

Blaauklippen Family Market

On Sunday I took a little trip back to the Blaauklippen Market with my parents. This weekend there was a small antiques fair there as well, which turned out to be very small – and not anything too amazing. I didn’t mind too much, because even a short trip to the Blaauwklippen Market is a…

M Pâtisserie | Stellenbosch

 Stellenbosch is a tiny little student town, and hidden away in every street is another bakery, restaurant or bar that has something a little different to discover. I’m always looking for somewhere new to go to, and recently there has been one place in particular that I have been wanting to visit – a tiny…

The Birdcage Tea Bar | Stellenbosch

Hi Everyone! My friend Lucy and I have decided to try all the different coffee shops in the town we live in, Stellenbosch. I thought that I would share our findings with you! Last Tuesday, we made our first trip to a place called The Birdcage. The Birdcage Tea Bar used to be in another…

Stellenbosch Slow Food Market

Today was such a beautiful day that we decided to go up to the Stellenbosch Slow Food Market at Oude Libertas, in Stellenbosch. This market is on every Saturday, and has food, drinks, clothes, crafts, jewellery and a hundred and one other things as well. It is a favourite of my family’s and we go…
