|Philadelphia, West Coast, South Africa|
Most of the residential area is above the road leading into the village. Modern homes and perhaps not that interesting. However, the fascination lies in a few streets in this tiny gem of a village. Park in the shade opposite the NG Church and take to the streets! Wonderful Victorian houses, interesting arty shops, a corner store, a deli and a number of restaurants.
It's well worth the drive just to take a step back in time! With fascinating shops, displaying their quirky, unique wares, ensure that you have loads of cash in your wallet.
With verandas adorned with colourful plants in pots of various sizes, it's truly a feast for the senses.
There are a number of restaurants in this tiny village but no accommodation, so, if you love food, you will have to return again and again!
Odds Bistro is beautifully furnished inside and has an outside Smoking area plus an interesting small shop. It's housed in a modern building which looks spanking brand new. Intimate and cosy.
De Malle Meul was closed - they are normally open Thursday - Sunday and serve Buffets which are apparently fairly highly rated.
As we only had time to try one breakfast venue, we chose the Pepper Tree Coffee shop.
Set outside under large pepper trees, breakfast was certainly tasty and service was prompt.
Another find was the newly opend Deli Shed. With the owner being from Wales originally, we just had to buy a loaf of their Sour Dough Bread to take back home. All I can say - it was Delicious with a Capital D! We wish them success in their new venture. Pop in for a cup of coffee if you are passing.
