I love going away for the weekend and exploring our city like a proper local. Being spontaneous and booking a getaway somewhere out of Cape Town is becoming a habit and one that I love. Sometimes, we all just need to take time for ourselves and enjoy the good things in life. This weekend, Craig and I went back to Franschhoek for 24 hours, however, this time we stayed at the wonderful Station House right next to Vrede En Lust. If you would like to find out what you can get up to in 24 hours in Franschhoek then keep reading to find out more.
Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day. I actually get excited to go to sleep, so that I can wake up and have breakfast…I am not even kidding, lol! It is also one of the most important meals of the day- keeping you fueled and energized so that you are able to perform to the best of your ability. Now, being the adventurer that I am, I like to try new breakfasts spots all the time. However, there are a few breakfast spots that are my “go to” restaurants of choice. Why? Well, because I know that no matter what I feel like, the experience will be great and the food is always delicious. So if you are a foodie or simply just someone looking for a new breakfast spot to try, keep reading and you will be pleasantly surprised.
One spontaneous Saturday, my boyfriend and I decided to pack our bags and head out to Franschhoek for the night. We packed the car and headed out on a beautiful 45 minute drive from Cape Town. After stopping at a few wine farms (without having any breakfast) we set out to find the perfect little cafe for a much needed relaxing lunch. Whilst on our mission to find the perfect lunch spot, we came across Big Dog Cafe and was pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome and “vibey” atmosphere that the cafe had to offer.
