Scones and Cream at Hillcrest Berry Orchards in Banhoek Valley (2017-08-13) Photo Gallery | Restaurants 29 JAN 2018

Having spent most of our Sunday enjoying a drive, admiring the Huguenot Monument, and letting the kids run wild and free at the Station Pub & Grill in Franschhoek, we then wrapped up the outing with a stop at Hillcrest Berry Orchard (at the behest of BOTH Chantelle and the girls!) on the drive back. If … Continue reading Scones and Cream at Hillcrest Berry Orchards in Banhoek Valley (2017-08-13)

Jam and Scones at Hillcrest Berry Orchards in the Banhoek Valley (2017-04-22) Photo Gallery | Restaurants 24 NOV 2017

It is nowadays quite impossible for me to travel the road from Stellenbosch, past Pniel and on towards Franschhoek without it being requested that I stop for scones and cream at Hillcrest Berry Orchards by young Jessica. (Not that I mind though – a visit to Hillcrest Berries, on the outskirts of Stellenbosch, is always … Continue reading Jam and Scones at Hillcrest Berry Orchards in the Banhoek Valley (2017-04-22)

Scones, Cream and Jam at Hillcrest Berry Orchards in Stellenbosch (2017-03-05) Photo Gallery | Restaurants 09 APR 2017

As you drive through the Banhoek Valley on your way to Franschhoek, just before Pniel you’ll encounter an insignificant little entrance marked with a small signboard for Hillcrest Berry Orchards. This so happens to be an old favourite of Chantelle’s, and we are almost always guaranteed to pull over for a quick coffee stop every time we … Continue reading Scones, Cream and Jam at Hillcrest Berry Orchards in Stellenbosch (2017-03-05)

Manning the Stall, the Avengers and the Hillcrest Berry Orchards My Life 12 MAY 2012

Wow, for a change I got to pretty much spend the entirety of last weekend in Chantelle’s company, something which probably hasn’t happened in literally months! :) After working from home on Friday (official office move was still in progress, meaning I was getting more done from here than what I could achieve over there), … Continue reading Manning the Stall, the Avengers and the Hillcrest Berry Orchards

Photo Gallery: Scones and Jam at Hillcrest Berry Farm (2012-05-06) My Life | Photo Gallery 06 MAY 2012

Although the original plan was to visit the Babylonstoren farm on Sunday, they were too full to accommodate the combined might of the Lotter and Montgomery clans, and so instead we continued on with our journey through the Cape Winelands, ending up at the always popular Hillcrest Berry Orchards in Stellenbosch, for some scrumptious scones … Continue reading Photo Gallery: Scones and Jam at Hillcrest Berry Farm (2012-05-06)

A Weekend of Market, Pizza and Hillcrest My Life 29 AUG 2012

It was Chantelle’s off weekend last weekend, not that it changed our Friday evening much, seeing as she and I spent the whole evening doing market preparation for Saturday morning’s Willowbridge market. However, leading up to all that work in the evening, I must say that I enjoyed a fairly laid back end to the … Continue reading A Weekend of Market, Pizza and Hillcrest

Photo Gallery: Hillcrest Scones with the Friends (2012-08-26) Photo Gallery 26 AUG 2012

Despite the gloomy weekend weather, Chantelle’s craving for Hillcrest’s scones with clotted cream was strong enough to organize a morning outing with our friends to Hillcrest Berry Farm.

Lunch at Eaglevlei and Play at Weltevreden in Stellenbosch (2017-03-05) Photo Gallery | Restaurants 30 MAY 2017

One particular Sunday back in March this year, Chantelle and I must REALLY have been in the mood for a proper Sunday afternoon drive, because basically our day ended up looking like this: first food at Eaglevlei and then play at Weltevreden (both in Stellebosch), before moving on to scones at Hillcrest Berry Orchards (just outside … Continue reading Lunch at Eaglevlei and Play at Weltevreden in Stellenbosch (2017-03-05)

Birthday Weekend away in Franschhoek (2015-05-08) Photo Gallery 23 JUN 2015

The fact that I was going to be away for business in Sandton for my birthday back in May, meant that Chantelle and I bumped things up a little and headed out to breathtaking Franschhoek the weekend preceding Monday the 11th, free of the kids (thanks grandparents!) and ready to take in some culture! Early … Continue reading Birthday Weekend away in Franschhoek (2015-05-08)
