While cruising through the Garden Route, along the N2, Thyme & Again may quite easily slip by unmissed. But, what a sadness that would be.
Thyme & Again is defined as a farm stall, bakery and coffee shop but really offers a lot more than the usual homemade preserves and fresh seed loaf (which were, of course, present).
Goodies kept coming out of the bakery oven as we perused the huge range of sweets, preserves and pies. The smell of bacon and cheese pastry rolls, fresh grilled vegetable quiche and substantial chocolate cupcakes was irresistible. Pink meringues, millionaire’s shortbread, hefty date balls...the variety never seemed to end.
The small deli section includes black olives that are soaking up garlicky flavours as well as a range of local and imported cheeses and meats. There is a small room next to the deli that is crammed with awesome liquors – from premium brandies to nougat cream liqueur and an array of red, white and sparkling wines.
The service was delightful and we left feeling a full dress size larger, but no less delirious for it.
