If you haven’t been to Greyton, you are missing out. Just over a 100k’s from Cape Town, this town is a hub of interesting establishments. Quaint restaurants and coffee shops line the main stretch and it doesn’t take long before you notice that everything moves a fraction slower.
A stone’s throw from the main road is Oak and Vigne. A great little spot to sit and watch the happenings whilst sipping on a cup of Origin coffee. They have a restaurant that serves breakfast and lunch and wine tastings on weekends. Inside, one corner of the deli is occupied by Greyton Traditional Ice-Cream where you can find some rather interesting flavours like salted caramel and chocolate sherbet. They have also done a full range of flavours for each team competing in the World Cup. A separate section houses the heavenly Von Geusau chocolates.
Next door you will find Rockhopper Adventures where you can rent a bike to brave one of the downhill tracks. If you’re not the adrenaline junkie type, you can opt for a Johnny Loco and take a relaxing pedal around town. It won’t take you longer than a half hour to see the whole town, even at snails pace.
