The Country Life magazine piqued my interest and I started doing research. Located on the scenic Viljoenshoop Road in the midst of apple and pear farms, the eatery is in a huge converted shed fashioned from corrugated metal. Not very royal, we know, but once inside, you’re greeted with fresh flowers, a selection of yummy cakes and interesting artwork. There’s a traditional restaurant set-up as well as a quaint little area filled with a mix of armchairs if you prefer to relax in a homely living room setting while partaking in a meal.
What a great place to celebrate the beginning of summer in the Western Cape. Temperatures should be warmer and where better to celebrate life than in the Elgin Valley. Fresh apples and juice from the valley will be wonderful take-aways to bring back to the city!
As many of you know I use Trip Advisor as a yardstick as well to make up my mind. This is what people had to say on their website
An interesting addition to the menu items, though, are the flowers. Oh, and what flowers they are! Adding wonderful colour to the dishes, the flowers are also edible and accompany everything from breakfast to sweet treats that include cakes, tarts, brownies, apple crumble and chocolate fondant. Sip on a cuppa with a yummy slice of cake whilst enjoying an incredible view.
From fresh flowers to delicate place settings, Rojaal Teekamer goes the extra mile to make you feel special. Coupled with amazing food, it’s a must when you’re in Elgin.
