“Handcrafted Gifts and Art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

This small treasure is nestled in the forest of Newlands. We visited the gallery of Lesley Charnock a few years back and fell in love with her paintings, so we returned to purchase another this time round.

We also had time to browse around the other small shops and found some beautifully beaded jewellery and gifts at reasonable prices.

The Gardener's Cottage was not open, but we ate at the other small restaurant - Kwalapa - which sold organic light meals.

Pay Lesley Charnock a visit. She has both prints and original works, with mostly African women as her theme. Just lovely!

“Cosy in winter. Great for kids outside in summer.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

On a nice day you are lucky to get a table outside. In winter it is cosy inside. Generally a good venue to take your mother or grandmother or friend for breakfast or lunch. Next to SACS school. You can also visit some interesting shops in the complex.

“Great Breakfast place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Fantastic food - great breakfast place - try book ahead - and try to sit outside if the weather permits it (under the tree).. it has a charm that only cape town can muster.
Very special memories here - and good food.
