    Coffee Etc

    Owner Helen bakes everything herself and has even invented two cakes: the Middle Eastern Delight (featuring almonds, Turkish apricots, nutmeg and cloves, with honey and cream-cheese icing) and a pineapple coconut cream concoction. Coffees, milkshakes, smoothies and frappés are on the drinks menu and you sit among tomes from the adjoining bookshop (mainly the gardening and Afrikaans sections).

  • Nightlife in Lydenburg (Mashishing)

    Hops Hollow

    As you climb the Long Tom Pass 22km east of Lydenburg (Mashishing), stop at Africa's highest brewery, which makes light, 4% beers – but you'll still need a designated driver to navigate the serpentine bends afterwards. You can taste all five beers for R25. Dishes such as burgers, steaks, bangers and mash, toasted sandwiches and chicken curry are served, too (R40-150).
