Handful of Herbs is a sweet Tea Garden, positioned within a fragrant kitchen garden, tucked behind an old colonial home. Shaded by a huge Jacaranda tree, the tea garden is pleasant in the summer heat, and perfect for those Autumn afternoons.
A large variety of culinary herbs picked from the garden, are used in the salads, sandwiches and in the slow home-style dishes. A hot breakfast buffet is served on Saturdays between 09h00 and 12h00, so be sure not to miss that if you find yourself in Paarl on a Saturday morning, because you’ll find a feast waiting for you: eggs; brinjal; hash browns; creamed spinach; chicken livers peri-peri; crispy bacon and kippers, through to French toast and crumpets!
Salads are fairly simple, with choices such as Meditteranean, tuna salad with a creamy dressing, and avocado salad with sun-dried tomato, shrimps and sauce. Toasted tramezzinis make for perfect light lunch fare, with their uniquely South African-style fillings.
