Things to do with Kids in Cape Town: Eat at The Orchard Farm Stall in Grabouw Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions 30 MAY 2015

If you feel like a drive with the kids, then why not shoot up the N2 and tackle Sir Lowry’s Pass, taking it up past Steenbras Dam and then swinging left into Grabouw.

The first thing you’ll see is the large rolling green lawn of The Orchard Farm Stall, a large airy farm stall filled with all manner of home made treats, farm produce and of course arts and crafts.

Of more importance to us here is the attached coffee shop / restaurant, which features a host of well priced, simple food options, covering you if you just want to stop and have a cup of coffee and a piece of cake, or sit down and devour lunch proper.

The huge green lawn means that there is ample space for the kids to run around and play, and the owners also have had a little jungle gym with swings installed, perfect to keep the little ones busy.

Also, there seems to be a permanent jump castle setup as well – which needless to say keeps the kiddies pretty happy!

So if you want to get some fresh air, let the kids run around a bit, and just sit and relax, then a stop at The Orchard Farm Stall in Grabouw is certainly not a bad option.

(My only complaint is a little one – given that it sits right on the N2, you do get the noise of the passing traffic – but in the same breath that gives you a little more to see and to talk about, so it’s not all that bad!)

Note, if your kids are of the older variety, then another great option slightly further along the route is Peregrine Farm Stall and its associated Red Tractor Cafe – looking particularly good following its recent refurbishment.

Oh, and on the way back, don’t forget to pull over and stop at the Sir Lowry’s Pass viewpoint. Stunning views of the False Bay, Gordon’s Bay, Strand, and Somerset West guaranteed!

(The day that these photos were taken proved to be a little too windy for the girls – they were back inside the car before you could blink!)
