There’s a peach farm, like an actual farm, called Camdeboo Farm in the middle of the northern suburbs of Jozi! We headed down to their restaurant, Peach Cafe for breakfast one Saturday morning. It was one of those days when Jozi was really showing off! 🙂 Breakfast with a view indeed!

If you’re a foodie & a fan of th city you’re in for a major treat this week! The Taste of Maboneng looks to be refreshingly different to the other “Taste of…” events. And in news just in yesterday… SMACK! Republic Brewing Co. will be joining the fun so you too can sample some of their brand new
We made our way down to the Food Wine Design Fair at the rooftop of Hyde Park (my favourite mall) last Sunday afternoon (the last day of the fair) to see what all the hype was about. I’m not typically a fan of these sort of events & try to do them once in a while. We

Last night the Eat Out DStv Food Network Restaurant Awards announced the top 10 restaurants in SA at the Westin, Cape Town. I was keenly “watching” on twitter with a severe case of FOMO.

I first heard about Cafe 1145 on Twitter from Voila Magazine when they tweeted that this was the spot where they got they daily caffeine fix. Now we all know that ‘creatives’ are coffee snobs & well, so is my hubby & I knew I had to take him along to check it out. Cafe
I’m always very excited to find new food spots & doubly so when they’re in my neighbourhood (Jozi CBD), so imagine my excitement when I stumbled across Gold Mine Cafe right in our street! They opened in September this year & we had noticed the renovations & bright lights these last few weeks but
That’s the tagline of Cramers Coffee that first caught my eye when I passed by them – a tough one to ignore when you’re married to a caffeine addict! I’ve already raved about how much we love living in the city & one of our new pass times is taking walks in our ‘hood.
This story wouldn’t be done if I didn’t tell you about the food in Istanbul. Just like any modern city, you can get just about anything that your tummy desires. The best part for us as mentioned before is a privilege we don’t even enjoy at home in SA & that was that the food
