My long weekend started in a good way with the blessings of a Friday. The past Friday has been the best one for me by far. It marked a very important milestone to the start of a beautiful life journey and also marked the start of my bestie road trip to Hermanus.
With road trips come random stops and the inspiration to this post.
We stumbled across the Orchard Farm stall while reaching the end of Sir Lowry’s Pass in Elgin. From the road it looked like a lovely “dorpie”style farm stall with a massive outdoor garden and entertainment area. The explorer in me immediately made a sharp turn and informed my bestie that this was where we having tea. It was such a great spontaneous decision.
As we walked through the farm stall we felt like buying all the homemade goods…not to worry we didn’t break the bank but we did buy Popeye sherbet…how could we resist the childhood thrill of sherbet through a pipe.
After making our way to the restaurant / coffee area, we were seated in the enclosed “stoop”area. This was very cosy filled with paintings and overlooking the outdoor garden / play area with easy access to the farm stall.
Thanks to our walk-about through Orchard we knew exactly what we wanted before looking at the menu. I ordered the scones that were served with strawberry jam and cream and my bestie took a chocolate butter icing and a dollop of caramel.
I absolutely devoured the scones, it was the best tasting melt in your mouth scones. It was that good there was no time for chit chat.
If you ever find yourself on Sir Lowry’s Pass I strongly suggest a pit stop at Orchard.
