Pit Stop

go! - - Contents -

The R60 be­tween Swellen­dam and Worces­ter has lots of road­side farm stalls and other places to stop. If it’s all too con­fus­ing, save your ap­petite for this green-and-yel­low spot near Ash­ton. You won’t re­gret it. Steps dec­o­rated with mo­saic tiles lead you to a comfy ve­randa and a green lawn where you can for­get about bad driv­ers and pot­holes for a while. Sit on a couch or at one of the pic­nic ta­bles on the lawn and look out over the Lange­berg while you wait for your Oreo milk­shake (R35) to ar­rive. The farm stall kitchen makes de­li­cious light meals like toasted ba­con, egg and cheese (R40) or quiche with salad (R35). The menu is on a black­board on the ve­randa and you’re wel­come to order take­aways. If the kids are rest­less, let them play on the jun­gle gym and run around on the lawn. In­side, you can buy pantry sta­ples like fresh fruit and veg­gies, bil­tong, rusks, bis­cuits, sweets, pre­served peaches and olives, and meat prod­ucts like cheese sausage and skil­pad­jies. You can also buy hand­made items for your gift drawer at home, like knit­ted bean­ies and ce­ram­ics. Where? About 17 km from Ash­ton and 31 km from Swellen­dam on the R60. Open­ing times: Week­days from 9 am to 4.30 pm (closed on Tues­days). Satur­day from 9 am to 1 pm; Sun­day from 9 am to 4.30 pm. Con­tact: 083 236 9216; spanspekse­plek.co.za
