I generally am very unadventurous when it comes to stopping on road-trips. On a recent return from Knysna we stopped at Tredici in Swellendam.
Getting there: on the N2 adjacent Swellendam
GPS Coordinates: -34.0291156, 20.442312
I have always passed by Swellendam without stopping as Swellendam itself is not on the N2. Tredici opened it’s doors in November 2012. We stopped to check it out and ended up having some light refreshments. The prices are certainly not cheap: we had cooldrinks (R14 for a 330ml Coke & R19.00 for a Fitch and Leeds Lemonade), and I had a slice of truly decadent chocolate cake (R30.00).
There is a petrol station next to Tredici.
