Dining with Mr D at Granny Jeans.
I love supporting local, especially when it comes to coffee shops or local eateries and trust me I love eating!
This week we eventually got around to going to find the lovely and slightly hidden away gem in Malmesbury – Granny Jeans
We were seated outside under the trees and what a setting it is, from the rustic braai in the corner and the chickens walking around, luckily not to close to me as I’m petrified of chickens, to the large table who had just left before we arrived, what a lovely venue.
Once seated, Chef Don, came to take our drinks order and informed us of their specials for the day – Apple Crumble and Scones – we ordered a Cappuccino and a Hot Chocolate – and of course a portion of the Apple Crumble and also a Scone.
We sat chatting and before we knew it our drinks had arrived. The coffee is amazing and the small attention to detail, like the sugar comes in a Baking Powder tin, super cute and a glass of water on the side with the coffee and a marshmallow served with the Hot Chocolate, reminded me of my time while travelling in Italy.
Just as we started chatting and enjoying our drinks the sweet order arrived.
To put it mildly, I was blown out of this world!
The Apple crumble was oozing love and you were immediately transported back to smells of your Granny baking in the kitchen and you as a little child being covered in flour from head to toe and all this served with a very generous serving of cream!
The scones were like nothing you had tasted before – light and fluffy and you can taste that it is not just made from a recipe, the chef bakes with so much passion and care and you can taste this in the food that they produce, served with fresh cream, strawberry jam and butter.
With so much going on in the world at the moment it was so nice to just sit and chat and feel as if you are sitting on spot far, far away from everything, meanwhile you are right across the road from Swartland High School.
