Pepper Tree Restaurant / Coffee Shop (Philadelphia, South Africa)

Whilst I was in Cape Town on holiday during the start of May – I had the opportunity to visit the delightful little town of Philadelphia just outside of the city – meeting up with some of my mom’s friends, doing a bit of exploring in their arts & crafts shops and of course… eating! (Philadelphia is a quaint little historical town about 2km off the N7 on the R304.)

I had been to the Pepper Tree before – so I knew what to expect… and the below images really don’t do it justice.

It has an old world country charm – outdoor dining includes tables & chairs under a large tent (and under the Pepper Trees) near the little fountain, with flowers and bushes in abundance along the stoep (South African word for a Veranda around a house) while the indoor area can be a little on the dark side, it still allows diners to sit back, relax and enjoy the relaxed, country, cosy feeling.

Between the four of us – Mommabear & Pam both ordered the Chicken Pot Pie (served with baby potatoes & vegetables / salad)

Tracy ordered the Ham & Mushroom Pasta (a truly splendid looking dish!)

and I went for the Mushroom Soup (which was definitely made with REAL fresh mushrooms.. and lots of cream MMmmm!)

All of the food was delicious… the pricing was pretty reasonable (I think that our meals came to about R150 for 4 of us, excluding drinks) and the service was friendly.

Would I return? If I was in the neighbourhood –  a definite yes!
