WEEKEND GETAWAY – Cape Town (5 – Final)

West Coast Farm Stall (Yzerfontein)

This will be our last post on our Weekend Getaway. It’s amazing how fully packed a weekend can be … and it only ended when we arrived home … with a lovely lunch stop at our favourite farm stall, the West Coast Farm Stall.

Where is the West Coast Farm Stall?

The West Coast Farm Stall is situated on the West Coast Road (R27) and about 100km from Cape Town. It’s close to the small seaside town of Yzerfontein and a popular pitstop for travellers.

There is a restaurant where you can enjoy breakfast/lunch inside or outside, a big playing area for children and on your way out there is a shop with freshly baked products (such as bread, rusks and cookies), as well as preserves, handmade gifts and wine.

Except for the restaurant and gift shop, there are also a variety of birds and other farm animals that one can visit while taking a casual stroll through the gardens.

I’m sure the playing area are very popular with children. While mom and dad enjoy their meal, children can get rid of their ‘excess energy’ here!

According to the West Coast Farm Stall, their pies are the best in the country. So, we had to try these in order to make a decision (we enjoyed many pies on our recent road trip to the East/North Coast of South Africa) … whether they are the best, is maybe debatable … but they are definitely among the top three!

My pie was filled with my favourite – Bobotie!

And then, on our way out after enjoying a delicious lunch, we strolled through the gift shop. It’s very possible that you will walk out with one or two (or more) items to enjoy at home later.

Don’t miss the wine shelf

We hope you have enjoyed our Weekend Getaway posts … and that maybe, you will have the opportunity yourself to visit one of these venues soon!

    1. Ons loer nogal gereeld daar in … wel, wanneer ons die slag Kaap toe gaan (dan drink ons gewoonlik ‘n vinnige koppie koffie/tee daar). Dis altyd lekker om net so ‘n bietjie rustig te raak voor of na ons in die Kaap was 😄.


    1. Thanks Hannah 🌸. This was a great weekend – I was actually exhausted after all the dining (and wining 😉). Oh yes, I always find these artwork so unique … amazing what you can do with old (unused) items and then change it into something new and original.

    1. You know, I’ also not a big coffee drinker (rather give me a cup of Rooibos tea) … but when I’m visiting a farm stall, I always drink a latte. Wednesday evenings is braai evenings here at our house, which mean a glass of wine next to the fire would be welcome 😉.

  1. So many nice details in this post Corna, from coffee, parrots and camera-friendly goats to the plentiful artsy bits peppered throughout. I’d definitely try one of those pies. Oh, and the chocolate toffee of course! What a weekend you had, packed indeed.

    1. Thanks Leighton, this is one of those farm stalls you just cannot miss on a trip (doesn’t matter whether you’re in a hurry to get to Cape Town or back home). Between you and me … I bought a packet of that chocolate toffee 😉 (no, I’m lying … I bought two)!

  2. First, I looked up what “Bobotie” means. Then I read the recipe and realized that I would definitely like it very much. Once again I really enjoyed reading about your interesting weekend trips. Your reports and the beautiful photos are wonderful and show me so many interesting areas! Thank you! I look forward to your future posts as well.
    Corna, I wish you all the best! 💕😊

    1. Bobotie is a traditional South African dish – and I LOVE it! It’s got wonderful spices in and is so easy to make!
      Rosie, thanks once again for taking an interest in our weekend getaway … I’m glad you enjoyed this post. Our next post will be about camping (yet again) and all the amazing food we made there.
      Take care and enjoy the rest of your week – hope Germany is getting warmer and you’re getting ready for summer time 🌞.


    1. Ah, thank you so much Henrietta 🌸. I’m really glad you like our weekend posts … there’s just so much to enjoy here on the West Coast! And yes, the West Coast Farm Stall is such a wonderful pitstop between our hometown and Cape Town – it’s always a pleasure to pop in there (even if it’s just for a quick coffee).
