Breakfast in the Cape Winelands at Twist some More - country restaurant, Wellington, South Africa


Twist some More, a wonderful cozy country restaurant, on a farm, nestled in a barn and sprawling out onto a patio with views of the surrounding hills and mountains.  In winter time, a crackling fire indoors beckons you to sip local wines at the bar in the barn, in summertime, stretch out under the oak trees and soak up the view.  With a blackboard menu, selections change regularly depending on freshly available local produce.  I recently visited with my mom and sister for a delicious breakfast in a gorgeous setting.

Enter the barn through large corrugated red and wine striped barn doors to the country restaurant



Sitting out under the old oak trees, gorgeous views over the valley, delicious breakfasts











Outdoor dining




Views from the paved patio - out over the fields to the mountains which add a spectacular backdrop












Inside the barn
Blackboards provide the delicious food of the day


Centerpieces on every table are simple and elegant, chives, poppyseed heads, asparagus, roses, onion blooms, artichokes


Lovely old wooden farm tables and mismatched chairs, rustic shelving with books and magazines, things you would find in an old farmhouse, make for a cozy welcome into this homelike setting.  And then there is the amazing home-cooked food.

Bottles of jams and pickles, cheeses, home baked goods are also for sale in a small deli area


My sister walking through the bar in the barn


I love the decorative cut log wall and huge fireplace in the background


Just like being at home with old antiques and cottage furniture, I love the scabiosa flower arrangement in the bright pottery vase


The bar in the barn serving local wines from the surrounding area.  Wellington is an area with award winning wines and an array of locally produced vegetables and fruits, sitting in the middle of lush farmlands


Some local pride.........


Amazing arrangements everywhere, this one with freshly picked artichokes, onion flowers



Sitting atop a bright red old General Electric fridge, a vase of fairy daisies, yellow indigenous pincushion proteas and a few onion flowers make a spectacular statement
