If you would like to get away from city life for a bit then you should take a drive to Stellenbosch and visit The Farmers Kitchen restaurant. Stellenbosch is a 39 minute car ride from Cape Town and offers breathtaking views of the country. This restaurant is ideally situated in an area so quiet and serene that takes you away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. I visited this restaurant in November 2013 and fell inlove with it as well as the little town it’s in.

What is The Farmer’s Kitchen?

According to their Facebook Page – ‘Coffee, wine, sweets, strawberries and cream. French colonial meets the the rustic counrty side. Emphasis is on comfort. We only use the freshest ingredients and source all our ingredients locally. Breakfast, lunches and light meals and the most perfect place to spend the day with your kids. Come try our French toast with strawberry compote, mascarpone, toasted almonds and bacon or indulge in some of our freshly baked goods’.

My Thoughts?

This is a lovely place to escape the city and is very family friendly. We went in Summer therefore it would be best to go during this period to enjoy the terrific views.
