The South African province of the Eastern Cape is simultaneously one of the largest and the quietest areas in the country. It remains largely unspoilt and less developed than other areas of South Africa, and has a unique, sometimes mysterious beauty as a result. Nieu-Bethesda is a village at the foot of the Sneeuberg Mountain Range within this province and has, despite its small size, managed to be an integral part of the culture and vibe of the Eastern Cape.
Nieu-Bethesda is also the home of the Tower Café and Restaurant. This eatery is open for deliciously tempting breakfasts, tasty lunches and hearty dinners from Monday to Sunday. The menu is varied enough to accommodate all preferences and palates, making this a perfect stop-over for young and old; whether they want to pop in en-route to other destinations, or get comfy and make a day out of it with friends and family.
Popular favourites amongst regular visitors of the Tower Restaurant include the Karoo lamb, cottage pie and traditional chicken curry. However, toasted sandwiches and fresh salads are also fantastic options for those that want something lighter, while vegetarians are well catered for with a number of innovative and tasty options.
The Tower Café is adjacent to the Bethesda Arts Centre, and got its name as a result of being situated within an old tower. This gives the entire ambience an air of quaint cosiness and a little splash of mystery and intrigue. The art of local craftsmen can be enjoyed between courses, and curios can be bought as a reminder of your time in this very special Eastern Cape village.
