Yesterday I spent some time walking the streets of Stellenbosch, ducking the rain, finding warmth in hot chocolate and some spoily shopping – it was lovely! We also visited Solms Delta before making our final highlight stop at Tokara’s Deli-CAT-essen.

I had never been before and it really is fabulous!! I am always stunned by the immaculate vineyards and olive groves at Tokara, and the view from the Deli showcases this. Such an amazing selection of all things delicious and wonderful, from the freshly produced items on the menu, to coffees, cookies, homemade chocolates, preserves, olives, oils, breads, charcouterie and cheeses. Deli Heaven!

I loved the sign above their kitchen counter too – “If it looks like a duck, talks like a duck, walks like a duck – it probably needs more time in the oven!” ☻☺

Del from the Deli cutting some of the yummiest parmesan cheese to ever make it’s way to our home …. Stunning man! Reason enough to visit!

Warm comfy spot for super-superior coffees and chats.

The tables with views down to the vineyard – the stuff that dreams are made of.
