Toomuchloveliness: Weekend in Stellenbosch

Highlights of our recent weekend in Stellenbosch

This winter season we spent a weekend away in both Franschhoek and Stellenbosch. I had such fun putting together a recommended weekend in Franschhoek that I wanted to try the same for Stellenbosch! Here are my highlights and recommendations for a fantastic weekend in Stellenbosch! We’re covering what to eat, where to stay and most…

Toomuchloveliness: La Petite Ferme in Franschhoek

First Thursday’s with La Petite Ferme in Franschhoek

Like any good Cape Townian, I know First Thursdays very well. It’s a busy Thursday night in town with art galleries, pumping restaurants and great wine. Franschhoek has cottoned on to this and has started their own Food and Wine Experience at La Petite Ferme in Franschhoek on the First Thursday of every month through winter.…

Lily's Restaurant Green Point

Lily’s Restaurant for Lunch in Green Point

When I was little my dad would take me for breakfast at Newport Deli. It was always busy and full of Sea Point regulars. Newport Deli closed a few years ago and the spot stayed empty. There was suddenly a hole in the dedicated local eating scene. Finally, Lily’s Restaurant has take over the Newport…

Toomuchloveliness: Lunch Special at La Colombe

Work Lunch Special at La Colombe

La Colombe is an exceptional restaurant, one of the top food experiences in our country and ranked number 73 on the the World 50 Best list. I have joined them for an incredible birthday lunch before and as wonderful as this experience was it is a little pricey. What is really exciting is that they offer…

Kyoto Garden Sushi: Set Menu for Two

Kyoto Garden Sushi: Set Menu for Two

If you have been following the blog you will know I am a huge fan of Kyoto Garden Sushi. It is one restaurant that we consistently return to and are always impressed by the dishes. We have a few big hit favourites but try taste more dishes on the menu every time. The only problem…

Crumbs and Cream in Seapoint

I thought by now the craze would have worn out. But it really hasn’t. Crumbs and Cream has launched the first South African ice cream sandwich brand by pairing delicious gooey cookies with fantastic ice cream flavours and exciting toppings!. We arrived on a lovely wintery day with a queue of twenty people heading out…

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…

La Colombe: Gourmand Lunch Menu

There is food that is simply perfect. I have a rolling list which includes a perfectly ripe nectarine straight out of the fridge, an avocado in between the rock hard and vrot phase, tuna sashimi and oyster mushrooms. I’m not sure why I find these foods perfect as they are all quite different from one…

Lazy Lunches at Jordan

We have been slowly working our way through the Eat Out Top Ten of 2016 (and the top twenty nominees too). I have visited Jordan before on many occassion for both wine tasting and lunch at their amazing deli. I would highly recommend their deli for delicious seasonal food and stunning views. However, I have…

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…
