Cafés & delis

Nanaga Farm Stall

From humble beginnings 40 years ago, Nanaga is now one of the top Farm Stalls in the country. With jams, marmalades, relishes, chutneys, rusks and roosterkoek all on offer, it's really all about their pies which have reached iconic status. Whether frozen to take home, fresh for on the road or to enjoy in the country setting of Nanaga, you simply have to try the lamb and mint, or perhaps the wild boar, the venison, the lamb curry, the spinach and feta... get the picture?

The Sandbar Floating Restaurant

Restaurants

The Sandbar Floating Restaurant

Originally meant to be a floating-down-the-Bushmans-River dining experience, this idea was short lived as the boat was too large to control on the narrow river. Now permanently moored on the banks of the river you can enjoy the full a la carte seafood-dominated menu without fears of a drunken captain running the vessel aground. The rustic feel and unsurpassed food and service are further enhanced by the prolific bird life and Cape clawless otters frolicking around the boat.

  • Prices: Average starter R25; mains R75; desserts R25.

Vovo Telo

If the smell of fresh bread excites you as much as it does me then you need to head down to Vovo Telo (either of their 2 branches in Port Elizabeth). The story of how Vovo Telo came into being might go something like this: Inspired by an old man selling fresh breads in Madagascar, the group responsible for Vovo Telo got artisan baking masters to come and share their skills and experiences with them. Fresh aromas would drift down the street through the morning air, and people would come to investigate and watch us at work. Over time, our customers began to realise what artisan baking is all about. They would bring their own fillings for the freshly-baked bread and sit on our stoep. So we thought it was only hospitable to put down some tables and chairs, and perhaps offer a coffee to go with that morning croissant. From there, options expanded into a range of sandwiches, pastries, light breakfasts and lunches that you can enjoy at any of our stores. We love putting our great breads together with the finest, fresh ingredients we can find to try and create something special every day. We use local, artisanal products in all our bakeries, supporting producers who share our love of quality and integrity. And I think this sums up perfectly why, when in PE, a visit to Vovo Telo is crucial - the energy, the passion, the aromas, the quality, the love… and the food!

About Eastern Cape

The Eastern Cape, a huge expanse of land with 800km of coastline, is home to much of this country's history, both ancient and modern. Its earliest inhabitants left their mark in rock art sites across the area while European settlers of the 1700s stamped their own signature in the forts and garrisons from which they attacked resident Xhosa tribes.
