Coffee Shop Gems in North West, South Africa

Green Leaves, Hartbeespoort, Coffee shop

I love the fact that there are very few coffee chains in South Africa.  People make a living by trying to be more unique that the next person down the road.  The result? Gems!

The shops are getting ready for the Easter Fever, but I still feel a bit of the Christmas nostalgia lingering in the air.

Potjiekos

Sometimes I miss being little.  On Saturday evenings we would often sit outside as my dad makes a potjie. There are as many recipes out there as there are potjies, but of course, my dad’s Drunken Chicken Potjie is the best!

Black Monday
