Review of 44 Stanley

In the last few years certain areas of Joburg have taken on a more trendy artsy feel, with markets and little boutiques. 44 Stanely is not in one of these areas I more traditionally think it would be, but what a great place. It's a collection of eateries, shops and boutiques set in one place. We went on a chilly Joburg morning and had a fabulous time, having brunch at Volo Telo, strolling through the funky and eclectic stores, like the fabulous book store, and our favorite, Vendage - a store with some really fantastic, and usual kitchen-y things. Stop at Bean There for a great cup of coffee and get a freshly ground bag to go. All in all, a great way to while some time away.

This place has it all, for a quick sense of the trendy Jozi crowd, music, crafts, fashion, antiques, people watching, garden and wonderful service. The place is open for lunch, the shops close at 4pm, so the best if you come late is to order and go and shop, have a sip of wine and explore another shop, have a pizza bite and choose another shop to visit...the place is vibrant with music and people during the week end, lovely ambiance and wonderful things to buy from different designers and needs. Sit under a tree, order a pizza, a beer and enjoy the hip trendy crowd of joburg. At night the beer garden is the place to be, with it's crazy owner who is always ready to taste a specila tequila or a great rhum with you...but the beer is what you want! Another good place to sample a food fest in a cool place is the "neighbourgood market". Check it out.

This is a great spot for a few drinks or a family lunch! There are a few shops as well... But quite a few good cafe/restaurants. There is a beer hall there which has a great outdoor area! If art on main is a bit too young then this a great alternative! Parking can be a challenge so be prepared for a bit of a walk!

OMG - there are bright spots in Jo'Burg! I know everyone skips over this city but every place has gems! This is a GEM! There are individual cafes and shops here! It's hip but very rustic chic! Kinda like French nouveau feel. I'd recommend a specific spot but honestly all the places seem great - we had lunch at one place and coffee at another place! Yeah Jo'Burg!

we've been going to 44 Stanley since its inception. and over the years it has changed somewhat and become a bit more mainstream. it still retains its quirky, slightly off-beat character though.
a visit there is always enjoyable, it's very laid back and peaceful. the restaurants have interesting fare and the little sandwich shop makes the most divine food.
not that much for kids to do though.
