Toomuchloveliness: De Vrije

My New Favourite Burger at De Vrije in Stellenbosch

A few weekends ago we were out in Stellenbosch. We were um’ing and ah’ing between wine tasting, grabbing lunch or heading to Majeka House for an afternoon nap. I was voting for nap – but we were hungry! Luckily Jono remembered we hadn’t yet visited¬†De Vrije, Bertus Basson’s new burger spot in the heart of…

Toomuchloveliness Guide to a Weekend in McGregor

I’m a big believer in exploring your own backyard – whether it be a new restaurant in your suburb, long weekends away or a full scale cross country road trip. I hope to inspire more weekends away for my fellow Cape Townians and prove how affordable weekend escaping can be. I have found the Robertson…

Cape Town Winter Restaurant Specials

MY SUPER HONEST 2018 Cape Town Winter Restaurant Specials

I had a little rant on Instagram the other day. I generally keep below the radar but lately I have been feeling like the restaurant industry is having a laugh. The latest Cape Town Winter Restaurant Specials are hitting the internet and I am finding them… disappointing. I’m not sure what your disposable income situation…

Jack Black Brewery Taproom, Burger, slaw

Taproom Dining at Jack Black Brewery

The Taproom at Jack Black Brewery is not too far from where we live. They host some amazing events such as a Food Truck Friday and Quiz Nights. They also have a seriously delicious menu with really affordable pricing. A couple of public holidays ago we popped down to The Taproom for a casual lunch…

Eating Everything at Hartenberg

Eating Everything at Hartenberg

Our first trip out to the winelands for 2017 was Hartenberg Wine Estate and they have set a fantastic tone for the year of adventuring to come! Hartenberg is known for their picnics, their shiraz and their beautiful gardens. I have been to a picnic at Hartenberg before and really enjoyed the experience. This time…

Oranjezicht City Farm Market at The Waterfront

I was always a big fan of the Oranjezicht City Farm Market when it was in its original location. And I used to try visit on a monthly basis. However, when it moved to Helen Zille’s home and then again to the V&A¬†Waterfront I fell out of the habit of going. However, on a weekend…

Toomuchloveliness: Hoghouse at Spier

Hoghouse at Spier for Partying and Feasting

I am a huge fan of The Hog House in Ndebeni and as such was delighted to find out about The Hoghouse at Spier. If you have been following my blog – you will know of my huge love of Stellenbosch. I was recently called the unofficial Miss Stellenbosch and to be honest, I’m thrilled!…

Lunching at Gabrielskloof

I have been wanting to visit Gabrielskloof for the longest time! They offer picnics in the summer and farm style family lunches in the winter months. They produce incredible wines and promise fantastic views. But sadly our weekends always filled up with other things and we never had the chance to visit. When we booked…

A Quick Round up of The Botriver Spring Weekend

I don’t tend to write posts diary style but we had such a lovely weekend away exploring Botriver that I thought I would squeeze in a quick post and share our weekend. I have really fallen for the little town of Botriver which is truly charming. I spend a lot of time in between farms…

Craft for Utter Indulgence in Jo’burg

I’m up in Jo’burg for work quite a bit this year. And on top of all the working we are doing I’ve made a serious effort to explore Jo’burg and find out what this city has to offer. As a typical Cape Townian I am quick to tell you how bad Jo’burg is. This was…
