Heading from George to Stellenbosch a out a 5 hour drive.
Saw sign on the highway BLUE COW RESTAURANT BY THE WATERFRONT, wondered where the waterfront could be in Barrydale, so had to go and have a look.
The waterfront is a fish filled pond with several ducks. Don't expect anything flashy its an ordinary looking building. There is an indoor seating area and a wooden deck with tables and chairs overlooking the pond and valley with the mountains as a back drop. It's so peaceful. As soon as you sit down they give you 2 slices of bread to feed the ducks. A friendly little place. We just had coffee with a fresh warmed bran muffin and apple pie where the plate was decorated with dusted icing sugar cow. I can definitely recommend the pie. The owner was so friendly and warm she recommend that we not leave South Africa without trying Snoek (fish) and rooibos tea, apparently they make a Red Cappucino out of it and she says it is divine.
If passing go and try as the sign says out the front 'you will be pleasantly surprised'
